    2. Specular reflection vs. backscattering for transdermal OCT-based glucose monitoring with an implantable sensor system

      The reliability of optical techniques for non-invasive monitoring of glucose can be significantly improved by the deployment of a subcutaneous implantable sensor that can closely track the changes in the local concentration of glucose in skin. We have developed a novel implantable sensor that can track glucose-induced changes in the optical turbidity of the implant. In this sensor, optical turbidity decreases significantly with increased glucose concentrations. We performed comparative measurements by optical coherence tomography (OCT) used to monitor backscattering or specular reflection originated from specific structures within the sensor and by collimated light transmission measurement technique to measure the changes ...

    3. System, device and method for determining the concentration of an analyte

      There are many inventions described and illustrated herein. In one aspect, the present invention is a system, a device and a method for sensing the concentration of an analyte in a fluid (for example, a fluid sample) or matrix. The analyte may be glucose or other chemical of interest. The fluid or matrix may be, for example, the fluid or matrix in the body of an animal (for example, human), or any other suitable fluid or matrix in which it is desired to know the concentration of an analyte. In one embodiment, the invention is a system and/or device ...
