Application Note for measuring glucose in soft drinks


The detection of glucose is important in many industries and applications, from the monitoring of glucose for diabetics, to knowing the sugar in a soft drink, to measuring glucose in a bioreactor or cell culture. 


In this application note on our website we provide a simple experiment that can be performed outside of a laboratory with readily available drinks from the supermarket and is intended to test and to gather the first data from a glucose sensor. 


With a glucose sensor one can perform quantitative and qualitative experiments. A quantitative experiment is where we measure and report the amount of glucose in a drop of blood for example.


The application experiment described within this document is a qualitative experiment, which requires no chemicals and can demonstrate a clear response by the sensor to regular coke relative to coke zero which has no sugar. The output from the experiment is qualitative in that the output of the experiment is ‘YES or NO, glucose is present’. Find out more on our website.
