World Diabetes Day

In 2007 the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 61/225 designating 14 November as World Diabetes Day. The below blog will be looking at the role of Laser diodes in Non-Invasive glucose monitoring & other applications. 


Infrared can refer to a wide range of wavelengths; from 780 nm to 1,000,000 nm. There are a range of Medical applications at the Near to Mid Infrared, as well as across other wavelengths.

Glucose Sensing

This non-invasive sensing can be used to help control diabetes. Instead of require blood to test, those with diabetes may be able to wear a patch, smart watch, or other device to monitor their glucose levels.

This usually occurs in the 2000nm to 2400nm Wavelength


0 nm



0 nm

Additional applications

Non-Invasive sensing within these wavelengths isn’t just limited to Glucose monitoring, but can also include: Ascorbate, Alanine, Albumin, Lactate (Lactic acid), Urea, Triacetin)
