Title : Pulsed photoacoustic non-invassive glucose measurement based on dual-wavelength near infrared differential-absorption method


Non-invasive, portable, economical, dynamic blood glucose monitoring device has become a functional requirement for diabetes in his regulating entire life. In photoacoustic (PA) dual-wavelength near infrared differential-absorption measurement, the glucose in aqueous solutions was excited by two short duration (order of nanoseconds) diode laser pulse system which wavelengths were 1560nm and 1392nm, respectively. The glucose in aqueous solutions to be analyzed was contained within the first photoacoustic cell (PAC), whereas the presence of a second reference photoacoustic cell (PAC) provided energy monitoring.

The PA pulsed signals were measured using a piezoelectric detector and the voltage pulses from the piezoelectric detector were amplified with a precision AC 9452 amplifier, the PA signal strength (PSS) was computed as the integration of the Hilbert Transform of the PA signal. To investigate the possible contributions of other blood analytes to the total photoacoustic response from blood, solutions of sodium chloride, cholesterol, and Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) were investigated. The function generation and signal acquisition were performed in the PC using Labview software.

The experimental results showed that the photoacoustic (PA) dual-wavelength near infrared differential-absorption measurement can be engineered to detect blood glucose. The results of our study have the potential to not only better develop photoacoustic (PA) blood glucose meter, but also extend the viability and use of photoacoustics into detection of otherwise blood components.
