     “Volunteers Wanted!”
     DIRAmed is developing a technology to allow people with dia-              med                 DIRA
     betes to measure blood glucose levels without having to take
     a blood sample. If our research is successful, we expect it to
     lead to a device that painlessly determines the person’s glucose level by taking measurements
     directly through the skin with an invisible laser.
     We are currently evaluating the performance of a research instrument using Raman spectros-
     copy technology to measure glucose in the skin. The evaluation involves asking healthy (non-
     diabetic) “volunteers” to undergo a test that is similar to the standard Glucose Tolerance Test
     that is used to detect the onset of diabetes. The test involves an approximately 90-minute visit
     to our laboratory, at least three hours after eating (skipping breakfast or lunch is even better).
     The volunteers will be asked for seven standard finger prick blood glucose samples during the
     In addition to learning about your body’s response to glucose, those who volunteer will receive
     a gift certificate to a local restaurant.
