Pain Free Sugar Test: Diabetic patients have to get their blood sugar checked regularly because its high level can be life threatening. But the method of testing that is adopted, there is also pain in it (Pain Free Blood Sugar Test For Diabetes). Now solving this problem, the scientists of Australia have prepared a test kit, in which there is no pain while testing. In this, glucose levels are checked through saliva on a non-invasive strip.
At present, blood sugar testing is done in the hospital by taking blood by injection. Whereas it is tested at home through a machine, in which the blood of the finger is taken out with a small needle and it is kept on a strip. After which the sugar level is known on the machine. In such a situation, people suffering from diabetes avoid getting their tests done so that they do not have to face this pain. Professor Paul Dastoor of the University of Newcastle, who led the team that created this new kit, says that the new method embeds the enzyme, which then detects the glucose level.

He told that there is no pain at all in this method of testing diabetes. This method of testing is also very cheap. The benefit of this will be that people suffering from diabetes will not be afraid to get tested. Dastur says, ‘Your saliva contains glucose and this is how blood glucose is detected (How to Test Blood Sugar Without Blood). The methods we are working on are noteworthy, they are electronic inks, which work like electronic materials. But the difference is that we can print them on a large scale. Just like what you see in the newspaper.

Funding of $6.3 million has been secured from the Australian government to produce the test kit. But this can be done only when the test kit has passed the clinical trial. Taking this technique forward, COVID-19 can be investigated (How to Test Blood Sugar Without Pain). Newcastle University is already working with Harvard University.
