In a press release Wednesday, Samsung said the upcoming new product is not a smartphone or smart TV, but could change many people’s lives. Samsung recently developed a new noninvasive method to detect blood sugar levels, the press release said. Working with researchers at Samsung Advanced Technology (SAIT), Samsung Electronics and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the team created a “system for chemical component identification using lasers” using a technique called Raman spectroscopy.
By adjusting the system to directly observe the Raman peaks of glucose, the Samsung team says it is one of the most accurate technologies in non-invasive blood glucose detection.
Dr Sung Hyun Nam, researcher at Mobile Healthcare Lab at SAIT, said: “Noninvasive blood glucose monitoring has been a hot topic for decades, and I believe our findings will help guide future noninvasive blood sugar sensing research. We will continue to address challenging issues and believe that this will lead to the commercialization of noninvasive blood glucose sensors and ultimately help make life easier for people with diabetes. “
