How It Works

Our technology replaces the need for finger-prick blood glucose testing

1
Place the Saliva Glucose Biosensor in contact with saliva.
2
With biosensor nearby, the digital app displays the glucose measurement, flagging any that need attention.
3
The app provides real-time comparisons with historical data, and sends data to electronic medical record or caregiver.

For illustrative purposes only and has yet to receive regulatory approval in any jurisdiction.

Real-time updates and the ability to share results

The Saliva Glucose Biosensor System will allow the patient to achieve better glucose control through a practical understanding of lifestyle factors that affect glucose levels, thereby helping prevent or delay diabetes complications and ultimately personalizing diabetes management.

At the patient’s or authorized carer’s requirement, the patient data can be disseminated to a remote caregiver, a service for consultation or to any other individual with whom the patient chooses to share their glucose level measurements.

About the Centre for Organic Electronics

The biosensor was invented at the Priority Research Centre for Organic Electronics at The University of Newcastle, Australia.

The Centre for Organic Electronics is the first of its kind in Australia. It is an exciting new initiative focusing on the development of new electronic devices at the intersection between semiconductors and plastics.

The Centre focuses on the scientific challenges in the development of organic electronics, with massive potential for the next generation of environmentally friendly energy sources, photonics and biosensors.

Future Tests

Development has commenced on an entire portfolio of tests including cancer markers, hormones and allergens.
