Correlation between capillary and venous blood glucose levels in diabetic patients

Diabetes mellitus is a major public health problem and its complications can be prevented or delayed by self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG). This is a recommended key component of diabetes management by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) [ 1 ]. Rapid blood glucose determination is required for prescribing treatments and to make dose adjustments. Laboratory methods to measure plasma glucose levels are time consuming. Therefore, the use of glucometers has greatly increased. The international organization for standardization (ISO) recommends that total

Impedimetric characterization of human blood using three-electrode based ECIS devices

Introduction Blood is an important functional body fluid that transports oxygen as well as nutrients, vitamins, and metabolites to each part of the body. Blood is a heterogeneous tissue consisting of plasma, serum, and different blood cells such as red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets all of which have diverse functions and structures. Therefore precise knowledge of physical, biological, chemical, and electrical properties of blood and its constituents is of great importance in medicine and biology [ 1 ]. The investigation of
