Title
(EN) GLUCOMETER COMPRISING AN IMPLANTABLE LIGHT SOURCE
(FR) GLUCOMETRE COMPRENANT UNE SOURCE LUMINEUSE IMPLANTEE
Abstract
(EN) Apparatus for assaying an analyte in a body comprising: at least one light source (22) implantable in the body controllable to illuminate a tissue region in the body with light at at least one wavelength that is absorbed by the analyte and as a result generates photoacoustic waves in or changes in an acoustic property of the tissue region; at least one acoustic sensing transducer (30) adapted to be coupled to the body for receiving acoustic energy from the tissue region and generating signals responsive thereto; and a processor (66) that receives the signals and processes them to determine a concentration of the analyte in the illuminated tissue region. Further, an apparatus for assaying an analyte in an interstitial fluid in a body comprising an implantable light source (116) and an implantable photosensor (124).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil permettant de doser un analyte dans un corps, qui comprend au moins une source lumineuse implantée dans ledit corps pouvant être commandée de façon à éclairer une région tissulaire de ce corps au moyen d'une lumière d'au moins une longueur d'onde qui est absorbée par l'analyte, et générant en conséquence des ondes photoacoustiques dans ladite région tissulaire; au moins un transducteur de détection acoustique couplé au corps qui reçoit l'énergie acoustique provenant des ondes photoacoustiques et génère des ondes de signaux sensibles à cette énergie; et un processeur qui reçoit les signaux et les traite afin de déterminer la concentration de l'analyte dans la région tissulaire éclairée.
