Fabrication of Non-Enzymatic Optical Glucose Sensors based on Boronic Acid Derivatives

Publication Type: 
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Abstract: 
Diabetes is an incurable disease known to have severe acute and chronic side effects, namely blindness, heart disease or kidney failure, among others1-3. While monitoring the disease marker glucose in blood prolongs life expectancy, non-invasive continuous monitoring systems currently aren’t available1-3. The blood-glucose range for a healthy person is ~3-8mM, increasing to up to 40mM for people with diabetes3, where the related glucose levels in the ocular fluid are 0.05-0.5mM increasing to up to 5mM for diabetics3. Consequently, there is considerable interested in using ocular fluid as a sample medium for tracking the disease marker.
