3 Next Generation Glucose Monitoring Products for Diabetes Patients

Here is a preliminary list of 3 Next Generation Glucose Monitoring Products. Please comment away if I have missed any & will update this post.

 

Glysens

GlySens Incorporated is a privately held corporation devoted to developing the world’s first truly long term continuous glucose monitoring system, intended to dramatically improve the lives of people with diabetes. The GlySens fully implanted sensor—demonstrated up to 18 month lifetime in preclinical testing—wirelessly links to a convenient external receiver, designed to provide continuous, at-a-glance glucose measurement, recording, and alerts regarding hypo- and hyperglycemic glucose excursions. In contrast with other approaches that may require calibration multiple-times-per-day, system calibration checks of the GlySens sensor are designed to be required only infrequently, freeing users from the need for burdensome care and maintenance. For people living with diabetes, the GlySens implantable continuous glucose monitoring system (the GlySens ICGM® system) is intended to provide a means for easy, unobtrusive, worry-free glucose monitoring, and empower users by providing the information they need, while freeing them to live life on their own terms.  The GlySens ICGM system is currently undergoing clinical evaluation; initial human implant trials have been completed, and preparations for additional human trials are underway.

 

Senseonics

Senseonics is a medical technology company focused on the design, development and commercialization of glucose monitoring systems to improve the lives of people with diabetes by enhancing their ability to manage their disease with relative ease and accuracy. Senseonics first generation continuous glucose monitoring, or CGM, system is a reliable, long-term, implantable CGM system that we have designed to continually and accurately measure glucose levels in people with diabetes for a period of up to 90 days, as compared to five to seven days for currently available CGM systems.

 

Dexcom + Google/ Verily (Verily is was previously Google Life Sciences)

Dexcom a leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for people with diabetes, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with the life sciences team at Google to jointly develop a series of next-generation CGM products that are designed to be smaller and less expensive than existing technologies. These new products will incorporate Google's miniaturized electronics platform with DexCom's best-in-class sensor technology. This collaboration also provides an opportunity to better utilize the data generated by these CGM products to significantly improve the outcomes and reduce the costs associated with diabetes care.

"This partnership has the potential to change the face of diabetes technology forever," said Kevin Sayer, President and Chief Executive Officer of DexCom. "Working together, we believe we can introduce products that will move us beyond our core Type 1 business to become the standard of care for all people living with diabetes."

"We're committed to developing new technologies that will help move health care from reactive to proactive," said Andrew Conrad, head of the life sciences team at Google. "This collaboration is another step towards expanding monitoring options and making it easier for people with diabetes to proactively manage their health."
