New Portable Device Uses Sweat Samples to Detect and Manage Diabetes

Researchers from BITS Pilani, Hyderabad have developed a portable device that uses sweat samples to detect and manage diabetes. The device combines 3D printing, CO2 laser, and graphene-based electrodes to analyze glucose and lactate levels in sweat. It can connect to smartphones via a dedicated app, allowing users to access human metabolite data. The researchers are also working on a wearable version of the device for continuous monitoring. They plan to make the device commercially available within the next six to nine months at an affordable price.
