NovioSense glucose sensor and Google

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.
