SAN JOSE, Calif., April 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- C8 MediSensors, Inc. (www.c8medisensors.com), the leader in developing non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes, announced today that it has filed for CE mark approval to market the C8 MediSensors Optical Glucose Monitor™ in Europe. The monitor is currently an adjunct investigational device.
"The European Union has over 30 million people with diabetes who strive for better glycemic control to improve their health. Continuous glucose monitoring helps achieve better glycemic control but unfortunately, current methods of continuous glucose monitoring can be painful and come with high ongoing costs year after year. We plan to address that problem with technology that allows people with diabetes to measure their glucose continuously but without the pain and cost of current invasive technologies," said Paul S. Zygielbaum, Chief Operating Officer of C8 MediSensors.
C8 MediSensors uses a proven technology, Raman spectroscopy, to accurately measure glucose trans-dermally. A pain-free beam of light enters the skin and measures the unique Raman fingerprint of the glucose molecule. Readings are then sent to a display application on the user's smartphone. The C8 MediSensors Optical Glucose Monitor has been in development for over eight years.
