Interesting question. Anecdotally I have heard of falsely high readings when the patient's fingers had glucose on them prior to the test. That makes me wonder if a high concentration of D50 and distilled water, and a low concentration of D50 and distilled water would work. Adding coloring and a bit of a thickener to simulate blood would further add to the realism, if the idea even works. I will play around with it and report back.
