Paper Abstract

In this study, the refractive index of glucose-hemoglobin solutions at different glucose concentrations was measured. Measurements were performed using Abbe refractometer at 589 nm and OCT system at 1300 nm. The different amount of glucose was added to hemoglobin solution. Theoretical values of refractive index of the glucose-hemoglobin solutions were calculated in assumption that hemoglobin and glucose molecules do not interact. The difference between the measured and calculated values of refractive index can be connected with glucose binding to hemoglobin. It is shown that the refractive index measurements can be applied to the evaluation of glycated hemoglobin amount.
