Data Sciences International, Inc. Launches Telemetry Implant for Continuous Real-Time Glucose Measurement
May 21 14
Data Sciences International (DSI) has introduced the first-ever glucose telemetry implant for obtaining continuous, real-time measurements of blood glucose in laboratory animals. Because the sensor is placed directly into the bloodstream, researchers are now able to detect instantaneous changes in blood glucose, body temperature, and activity for 28 days or longer while reducing animal stress and measurement variability commonly associated with the use of glucose test strips. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that diabetes affects 26 million people in the U.S. alone, or 8.3% of the population. Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and blindness. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is providing an estimated $1 billion in funding for diabetes research in 2014. In addition, with nearly every major pharmaceutical company engaged in the development of new treatments for diabetes and metabolic disease, demand for better research instrumentation has also increased.
