Diabetic patients are generally advised to check their blood glucose level 5 to 7 times per day. Since the all current existing conventional methods of home blood glucose tests are painful, intimidating, laborious, and expensive, since they require obtaining a blood sample by pricking a fingertip with a needle or lancet. Thus it is necessary to develop a non-invasive blood glucose method which could provide fast, painless, and convenient glucose monitoring to diabetic patients. Since a…

Non-invasive blood glucose monitor based on spectroscopy using a smartphone
Monitoring blood glucose using a smartphone application that simply uses equipment already available on smartphones will improve the lives of diabetic patients who can continuously check their blood glucose levels while avoiding the current inconvenient, unhygienic, and costly invasive glucose meters.
A robust feeding strategy to maintain set‐point glucose in mammalian fed‐batch cultures when input parameters have a large error
A robust and sufficient level of control could be demonstrated even with high errors for biomass or metabolic state estimation, and may be a decisive advantage for rapid implementation during technology transfer and scale up and decrease in campaign change over time.


A New Approach to Glucose Monitoring Using a Non-Invasive Ocular Amperometric ElectroChemical Glucose Sensor for the Diabetics
The group will attempt to develop a new technology for the noninvasive monitoring of tear glucose levels, potentially blood glucose monitoring, using a disposable contact lens embedded with glucose sensing metal that is fast and simple, and is more economical than existing methods.
Modifying the Existing Non-invasive Optical Glucose Sensing Device and Demonstrating the Optical Rotatory Effect of glucose in the presence of Glucose Medium
The recent multicenter NIH studies have indicated that the health risks associated with diabetes are significantly reduced when theBlood glucose levels are well and frequently controlled, indicating that it is prudent to measure the blood glucose as often as five or six times a day.

A new approach to non-invasive closed loop optical glucose sensing has been proposed. Incident light on the cornea travels into the eye and reflects from the retina. The reflected light contains
Noninvasive Glucose Monitoring of the Aqueous Humor of the Eye: Part II. Animal Studies and the Scleral Lens
We have discussed the nature of a scleral lens that will allow us to follow changes in aqueous humor glucose levels in animals by a method based on optical rotation and a technique described in an
Development of a noninvasive corneal birefringence-compensated glucose-sensing polarimeter
In the recent past, optical polarimetry has been shown as a potential method for noninvasive physiologic glucose sensing in the eye. Although the necessary sensitivity and accuracy have been

A high-precision photoelectric polarimeter
In this instrument, which has been designed primarily for standardization work on quartz control plates, the half-shade principle familiar in visual polarimeters is realized, in a slightly different
Robust concentration determination of optically active molecules in turbid media with validated three-dimensional polarization sensitive Monte Carlo calculations.
It is concluded that in order to avoid systematic errors in concentration determination of optically-active molecular species in turbid samples, the scattered light in the forward direction should be used.
New design of spectropolarimeter
A new design of spectropolarimeter is described, in which the functions of monochromator and polarimeter are combined by using two crystalline quartz prisms both to disperse the radiation and to
