La. Tech researches 'smart tattoo' to benefit diabetics

Abstract:
If tests run true, then one day diabetics may never have to prick their fingers to test their blood sugar. Students at Louisiana Tech University's Institute for Micromanufacturing think they can create a "smart tattoo" that will enable diabetics to use light to measure their blood sugar rates. The tattoo part comes from an individual having nano particles injected into the skin. A spectrometer using special, filtered light would activate the nanoparticles, and a readout on a spectrometer would indicate blood sugar levels.
