Non-invasive spectroscopic detection of biomarkers

SIATLAB has developed and integrated a sensor for non-invasive blood glucose monitoring into a smart phone and built profound know-how in the fields of data analysis and artificial intelligence.  A Clinical Study confirmed proper accuracy. We created AI-based algorithms to identify key parameters of human physiology and developed multispectral analysers leading into a deep understanding of mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions, either caused by a disease or resulting from an abnormal syndrome (Pathophysiology).

Key Elements

We are using multispectral optical sensors with light radiation and detection that can be implemented in any kind of measuring device. The measurement takes about one minute and 20 seconds, the signal processing and sugar level prediction from the artificial intelligence cloud service algorithm is performed in only 10 seconds. Our application on the device guides the user through the whole process.

Clinical Study

The research was done to assess the reliability of non-invasive glucose measurements compared to established standard methods. A standardized analysis of the accuracy of blood glucose measurements is generally shown by the Clark-Error-Grid diagram. It shows a visual statistical estimation of accuracy based on the distribution of test results by individual zones: A - E. It is important that most measurements are in the lowest (hence A) zone.

  • OGTT tests performed on 40 persons of different gender and age according to standard clinical practice
  • Clinical study conducted at the Faculty of Medicine in Maribor confirms proper accuracy
  • Clinical research on a large patient pool at Maribor University Clinical Center

Development Goal

After glucose, SIATLAB is now working on the non-invasive detection of other key blood parameters that can be measured based on their molecular structure.
