Glioblastoma Multiforme is a very rare but very deadly form of cancer. While early detection can extend its survival rate, GBM tumors mimic other complications and make it difficult to detect via MRI or CT scans. Therefore, alternative methods have been studied by taking advantage of the cancer cell’s altered metabolism, since GBM patients having abnormally high lactate and low glucose levels. One method of monitoring the low glucose levels is through a biosensor. This study looks at the effectiveness of a TiO2 electrode with copper nanoparticles deposited on the surface. Electrodes made from small pieces of titanium foil to be used for testing. Using cyclic voltammetry in various electrolyte solutions, the electrode’s effectiveness at detecting glucose was analyzed.
