Engineers at Arizona State University and clinicians at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, US, have developed a painless self-monitoring blood-glucose sensor for patients with diabetes.

The sensor will enable people to determine their glucose levels from tear fluid.

According to researchers, the glucose in tear fluid may give an indication of glucose levels in the blood as accurately as a test using a blood sample.

The project was funded by the Mayo Clinic. BioAccel, an Arizona non-profit organisation, is providing further funding to conduct experiments to determine how well the new device correlates with use of current technology, which uses blood sampling.
