Affordable and sustainable self-powered GLUCOSE sensing system for a global FAIR diabetes management

Project description

Innovative, low-cost glucose sensing system

Measuring glucose levels in the blood is an important part of managing diabetes mellitus. The EU funded FAIRGLUCOSE project proposes an affordable, sustainable and self-powered standalone glucose sensing system. It allows blood measurement with a minimalistic and battery-less circuit that fits within the footprint of a commercial glucose strip. The system relies on the oxidation process of glucose from finger prick blood, transferring it to a voltage read-out through an innovative strategy. It reduces electrical and electronic equipment waste, avoiding the performance of millions of tests and their corresponding batteries. FAIRGLUCOSE will investigate the commercial feasibility of the solution and create an innovation road map for deploying the technology.
