This will work on the basis of an optical absorption spectrometer combined with a custom chip technology called silicon photonics that will be used to illuminate light at predetermined wavelengths. The new technology is said to work without the need for a needle to be used to collect a blood sample to detect the user’s blood sugar levels.
