18 Jan NovioSense glucose sensor and Google
Last Thursday (January 16, 2014) Google unveiled a contact lens that monitors glucose levels in tear fluid. According to Google it will take at least five years to reach consumers.
NovioSense develops a sensor based on the same substrate as Google’s (tear fluid) and NovioTech thinks that Google has a very interesting technology. However, NovioTech believes that the technology of its spin-off company NovioSense has advantages. NovioSense has, together with the Fraunhofer IMS institute in Duisburg, Germany, developed a first working prototype of its glucose sensor for measuring glucose concentrations in tear fluid.
See the NovioSense website here for more information on the NovioSense technology.
