New Sensor Measures Glucose In Eye Tears For Integration Into Contact , Oregon State University Study

Scientists at Oregon State University have developed a tiny sensor that can measure the concentration of glucose in tears, and may one day be integrated into contact lenses for noninvasive glucometry.

The sensor relies on an amorphous indium gallium oxide field effect transistor, or IGZO FET, which can be connected to an external display device or insulin pump to create a more comprehensive diabetes management system.
