Objective: Diabetes disease is the major and on rise public reasons for death, poor quality of life and organs failure that emphasized the importance of accurate measuring of body glucose. Carbon nanotube (CNT) biosensors exhibit great sensitivity and selectivity for glucose in blood and body fluids. The most recent progresses on the various methods of CNT biosensors development for glucose detecting are summarized in this review.
Method: Online search of different reference such as PubMed, ISI and Scopus was resulted in 34 correlated article regarding CNT detector and its application in diabetes sensing.
Result: The results showed advanced methods of CNT sensor functionalization with various modifiers like polyaniline and techniques such as self assembly layer by layer process. These point-of-care solution phase nanotube biosensors have significant potency to monitor blood glucose non-invasively and eliminate painful finger pricking procedure.
Conclusion: In this study, it has been concluded that appropriate surface modification of CNT biosensors could play an important role in real-time diagnosis of diabetes.
