We report the first successful study of the use of Raman spectroscopy for quantitative, noninvasive ("transcutaneous") measurement of blood analytes, using glucose as an example. As an initial evaluation of the ability of Raman spectroscopy to measure glucose transcutaneously, we studied 17 healthy human subjects whose blood glucose levels were elevated over a period of 2-3 h using a standard glucose tolerance test protocol. During the test, 461 Raman spectra were collected transcutaneously…
