Smart bio-sensor to rule out pricks for diabetics

Abstract:
Diabetics may not need to prick themselves anymore to monitor their sugar levels.

The Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay (IIT-B) has developed an implantable glucose bio-sensor using nanotechnology. Once injected, the bio-sensor would help monitor blood sugar levels for up to six months using an external hand-held device.
