How it works:

A transmitter wirelessly activates the sensor, which flashes an LED light source. A fluorescent polymer coating on the outside of the sensor is excited by the LED light. Glucose from the body reversibly binds to the coating and the amount of light emitted by the polymer coating rises and falls with the body’s glucose concentration. This emitted light is measured by photodetectors inside the sensor.

Fluorimetry has evolved over time to enable a form factor uniquely suited for a long term implantable device.
