Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: No more prick tests? Diabetes development

Researchers in the USA have developed a way to use mid-infrared quantum cascade laser spectroscopy to measure blood glucose through one's skin. If they can successfully miniaturise the system it could be a boon for people with diabetes who otherwise have to regularly prick their skin to obtain a blood sample for testing.

Ultraviolet light damages DNA and cause proteins in the body to break down into smaller, sometimes harmful pieces that may also damage DNA, increasing the risk of skin cancer and cataracts. UV-IR double-resonance photofragment spectroscopy now reveals the details.

The capability of near-infrared spectroscopy to determine crystallinity in processed sucrose was studied using a common set of calibration standards derived from binary physical mixtures.
