New South Wales: Australian experts have invented a sugar test that can be used to determine if a person has diabetes by measuring the amount of sugar in their saliva.
Dr. Paul Dastur and colleagues at the University of Newcastle in Callaghan, New South Wales, have invented this revolutionary sugar test that contains the same “testing strip” as used in traditional sugar tests.
Thanks to the new sugar test, about 460 million diabetic patients around the world will be relieved of the hassle of drawing blood every time they need a finger to find out the amount of sugar in their body.
It should be noted that like blood, saliva also contains a very small amount of sugar. However, the idea of using combustible sugar in the diagnosis of diabetes came up a few years ago.
Using this research, Dr. Paul Dastur and his colleagues have developed biosensors that can detect the amount of sugar in saliva in just a few seconds.
These sensitivities are part of a strip that resembles a blood sugar testing strip.
For use, the bandage is touched with the tongue in such a way that a small amount of saliva accumulates on it. Then the amount of sugar in the saliva of combustion is determined by placing it in a device.
This amount of sugar in the saliva is compared with standard measurements to determine if it is more or less normal.
Dr Paul has raised a total of ایک 12.6 million from the Australian government and a private company to introduce the new sugar test on a commercial scale.
He hopes that the factory for making strips and related equipment for the new sugar test will be completed by the end of this year, while the first commercial shipment will be put up for sale by 2023.
