From The News Wire: Nano-tetherball Biosensor Precisely Detects Glucose

Say that five times fast.

Researchers have created a precise biosensor for detecting blood glucose and potentially many other biological molecules by using hollow structures called single-wall carbon nanotubes anchored to gold-coated "nanocubes."

This must be really early stage stuff 'cause I didn't see any mention of curing mice. It does sound all Buck Rogers Tech Cool. Enjoy.
