medGadget – Plasmonic Cuvette Detects Glucose in Saliva, May Lead to Blood-Free Testing for Diabetics

Researchers at Brown University may have developed a new sensor that would allow the sampling of saliva for glucose testing. The sensor relies on plasmonic interferometry, a light-based way of detecting chemical compounds, and a dual-enzyme assay that works as a dye, to mark glucose.
