Point-of-care (POC) analytical technology has empowered patients with a more convenient, rapid, reliable, and cost-effective diagnostic tool for self-management of health. In order to realize the effective disease management and appropriate therapeutic interventions in real time, there is a great need for a POC health monitoring system which allows non-invasive, accurate, convenient, easy-to-use, painless, and very fast measurements. By reviewing some current technologies of POC, we believe for
