Lin's Biosensor Takes the Pinch Out of Glucose Monitoring for Diabetics

January 2006
ETD's Yuehe Lin and his co-authors paper on developing highly effective, selective, and noninvasive sensors for glucose levels is one of the most accessed papers in the field of chemistry, according to Nano Letters. Yuehe’s article "Glucose Biosensors Based on Carbon Nanotube Nanoelectrode Ensembles," published in Nano Letters in 2004, is the fourth most accessed paper on the list. The paper describes the development of a nanotechnology sensor that effectively measures glucose in the presence of common interferents, such as acetaminophen. This approach, simpler than those using membrane barriers or artificial electron mediators, could be applied to sensors for other common health concerns, such as cholesterol and acetylcholine.
