Devices and methods using modified paper electrodes for the detection of hemoglobin a1c and glucose
Inventors: James Li, Gilberto Henao-Pabon, K. Sudhakara Prasad
Patent No. 10,640,801

Description:
"This patent application embodies a technology for measuring glycated hemoglobin concentration in diabetic and pre-diabetic patients. Glycated hemoglobin typically indicates a three month average plasma glucose concentration."

Abstract:
Certain embodiments are directed to sensors that enable the use of optimized biocompatible materials such as pre-anodized paper printed electrode transducer to detect binding of a target agent, wherein the surface is modified or functionalized through zero length cross-linker so that it interacts with or specifically binds a target such as sugars (glucose) or glycated proteins (HgbA1c).
