PositiveID Corporation has announced that it finished developing a stand-alone device for relaying portable glucose meter readings to an online database. The unit is designed not to require a computer so that users can simply log their readings and shoot them up straight to the server for doctor’s review.
The iglucose system, a stand-alone, self-contained unit that operates without the use of a cell phone or personal computer, automatically queries data-capable glucometers for blood glucose readings and sends that data via wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) technology to an online database. At the patient’s discretion, blood glucose data can also be forwarded to physicians and caregivers at predetermined intervals.
The Company expects to submit its application to the FDA for 510(k) clearance during the second quarter.
