Invention lets diabetes patients measure blood sugar without finger pricking  

2009.01.16
Entrepreneurial firm RSP Systems has developed a piece of equipment that can measure the blood sugar level of a person with diabetes simply by placing a fingertip on a small illuminating lens
The small entrepreneurial firm RSP Systems in the Danish city of Odense has developed a handy piece of equipment that can measure for example the blood sugar level of a person with diabetes simply by placing a fingertip on a small illuminating lens and waiting a few moments for the result to appear on a screen. No finger pricking is necessary. The news is reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
 
The device uses an analytical method called Raman spectroscopy, a long-known and well established spectroscopic technique that can provide information on the composition of solids and liquids by observing the scattering of light from a single frequency light beam such as laser.
 
RSP Systems is still at the development stage with its product, and estimates that it will take another two or three years to eliminate unwanted optical and electrical noise and optimise signal quality to the level required for a commercial product.
