Measurement of capillary blood glucose in filter-paper spots: an aid to the assessment of diabetic control.

Abstract

A method of measuring glucose in capillary blood spotted on to filter paper was evaluated. Between-batch reproducibility was about 6%, and the glucose remained stable in the spots for up to four days. Adoption of the method should improve control of diabetes, particularly insulin-dependent forms.
