Biomolecular damage caused by elevated serum glucose manifests in the glycation of molecules found in blood. The concentration of glycated molecules provides a direct indication of this damage, and the degree to which normal blood glucose has been elevated, over a specified time period. Aisha and her coworkers devised an elegant electrochemical biosensor able to rapidly and simultaneously measure the concentration of both forms of HSA - glycated and non-glycated. The detection limits she demonstrates exceeds the requirements for intermediate-term glycemic control monitoring in diabetes patients at 5 and 1 nM for albumin and its glycated forms, respectively.
