|E-Mosquito Wearable Blood Sampler|
No economy can achieve success or growth scientifically without research. According to recent studies, the minimally invasive e-Mosquito will automatically draw and test the wearer’s blood throughout the day.
Researchers at the University of Calgary have published after analysing the latest version of their “Wearable Microsystem for Minimally Invasive, Pseudo-Continuous Blood Glucose Monitoring,” a watch-like wearable that “bites” you every few hours to draw blood and test your glucose levels.

“The primary concept/idea is to have periodic, spontaneous and autonomous biting resulting in reliable blood testing, said researcher Martin Mintchev. “It’s a very significant step in demonstrating autonomous contact with the capillary.”
The invention can be tailored to asses systems used for diabetes management as well as regular genetic testing or any sort of blood analysis that needs to be done regularly.
Based on published results:￼Unlike widespread remedy which tends to calculate and analyse blood sugar levels from interstitial fluids or tears, our design extracts a whole blood sample from a small lanced skin wound using a novel shape memory alloy (SMA)-based microactuator and directly measures the blood glucose level from the sample.
Finally, the e-Mosquito isn’t somewhat ready for major rock or hit, however, it constitutes a welcoming move forward for those who have to check their blood sugar regularly.
