Paper Abstract

We have investigated the possibilities of applying Raman spectroscopy for the in-vivo determination of blood glucose levels. To this end we measured Raman spectra of glucose dissolved in pure water and in the presence of other analytes such as glycogen and proteins. Secondly, we determined the fluorescence of blood serum for different excitation wavelengths. Since all measurements were done in an absolute way, we were able to predict if the Raman signal level of glucose was high enough to permit the in-vivo determination of the physiological glucose levels in blood.
