Innovative biocompatible sensor

for noninvasive determination of glucose level

ABOUT project

About project

All over the world diabetes is a significant problem and the morbidity is increasing more and more due to both genetic predisposition as well as the environmental factors. The aim of this project is to construct an innovative and fully biocompatible prototype of the electrochemical sensor for non-invasive detection of glucose in body fluids other than blood, such as sweat and interstitial liquid, which will be a hope for people facing with inconveniences of disease requiring regular and still invasive control of the sugar level. A key element of the prototype is a structured titanium substrate covered with gold and functionalized with enzyme selectively interacting with glucose molecules. It will be produced via anodization process of titanium foil and then the formed layers of highly ordered TiO2 nanotubes
