世界で4億人を超える糖尿病患者は、1日4-5回、指などを針で穿刺する採血型自己血糖値センサー(SMBG: Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose)を用いて血糖値を測定しなければならず、痛みや精神的ストレス、さらに感染症の危険を伴うなどの多くの問題をかかえている。LTTは、最先端レーザー技術により、従来光源と比較して、約10億倍の明るさの高輝度赤外線レーザーの開発に成功し、非侵襲血糖測定技術を世界で初めて確立した。採血なしに約5秒で血糖値を測定することが出来るため、糖尿病患者の方はもちろん、健常者による気軽な血糖値管理に活用することで、糖尿病人口の増加抑制、年々増加する医療費や介護費の削減とともに、健康寿命の延伸を目指すことができる。
