Continuous analyte measurement system with transcutaneous sensor and electronics
A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230309881A1) describes a system and method for measuring the concentration of an analyte in a host. The system includes a transcutaneous analyte sensor and sensor electronics that can be connected to the sensor. This system aims to provide a non-invasive way of measuring analyte concentration in the body.
The first claim of the patent describes the system itself. It consists of a transcutaneous analyte sensor, which is a device that can measure the concentration of an analyte in the body through the skin. The sensor electronics are designed to connect to the transcutaneous analyte sensor, allowing for the collection and processing of data.
The second claim focuses on the method for processing data from the transcutaneous analyte sensor. The method involves receiving sensor data that indicates the concentration of the analyte in the host's body. This data is then processed using a processor, which likely involves analyzing and interpreting the information to provide meaningful results.
Overall, this patent aims to provide a system and method for measuring analyte concentration in a non-invasive manner. By utilizing a transcutaneous analyte sensor and sensor electronics, the system can collect and process data to determine the concentration of the analyte in the host's body. This technology could have potential applications in various fields, such as healthcare and medical monitoring, where non-invasive measurements are desirable. However, it is important to note that the patent claims do not provide specific details about the analyte being measured or the specific implementation of the system and method.
