MC10, researchers in Korea build prototype glucose management patch

March 22, 2016

"Researchers from Massachusetts flexible electronics company MC10 and from Seoul National University in South Korea have created a prototype skin patch that could both monitor blood glucose levels and administer drugs like insulin or Metformin to patients with diabetes.

In the study, recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, researchers used a combination of graphene and gold mesh to create the patch, which was able to reduce blood glucose levels in mice. It measures humidity, glucose, pH, and temperature and uses pH and glucose to improve the accuracy of the glucose measurement."
