One of the problems of modern medical device engineering is the development of an instrument for non-invasive monitoring of glucose levels in the blood. The urgency of this task is ensured by the following facts: the increase in the incidence of diabetes, the need for regular monitoring of blood sugar, and pain of modern methods of glycemia measurement. The problem can be solved with the help of a spectrophotometric method. This report is devoted to the investigation of spectral characteristics of glucose solution with various molar concentrations. The authors proposed the methodology of experimental research and data processing algorithm. The results of the experimental studies confirmed potential opportunity of blood sugar control by spectrophotometric method. Further research is expected to continue by the way of complication of the composition of the object from an aqueous solution of glucose to biological object.
