The good news for diabetics is that they don’t need to have a needle to draw blood
Scientists at the University of Newcastle Australia have discovered a new way to check blood sugar in diabetics who no longer need the patient’s blood for a blood test.
Australian scientists have developed a strip that will now be used to check glucose levels in saliva, meaning that diabetics will no longer have to suffer during the test.
Now patients will place the strip on their tongue and after waiting for a while they will get the test result on the smartphone app.
Paul Dastur, a professor of physics at the University of Newcastle in Australia, led the team that created the strip.
According to Paul’s constitution, an enzyme was added to a transistor in the strip to check glucose levels. Since the electronic material in the transistor contains ink, it can also be easily manufactured with the help of special printers.
Professor Dastur says the technology could also be used in code tests, allergy, hormone and cancer tests, while Newcastle University is already working with Harvard University to test the code using this technology ۔
The test kit is currently in the testing phase and will be mass-produced after success in clinical trials and will then be available to the public.
