Molex company Phillips-Medisize and Finland-based medtech company GlucoModicum have partnered on an advanced non-invasive, needle-free continuous glucose monitor (CGM).

Claimed to be the first-of-its-kind, the wearable device will be designed and commercialised to eliminate technology and patient-care roadblocks to CGM.

GlucoModicum determined that magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) technology helps in applying a small amount of energy directly to the interstitial fluid to drive it to the skin surface for rapid and easy glucose sample extraction.

With the support of a contract development and manufacturing organisation, GlucoModicum focused on the development of a new device, Talisman, which will adhere to a patient’s arm.

The device combines MHD technology, advanced algorithms and ultra-sensitive biosensors while linking to a smartphone app for data collection and reporting.

GlucoModicum has not yet received either the US Food and Drug Administration or CE Mark approval for the Talisman device.

Phillips-Medisize business development manager Homer Fairley said: “The day we provided the finished sample product to GlucoModicum was a moment of celebration for both parties, as it really brought the possibilities to life.

“Now that there is a proven concept, we look forward to the opportunity to leverage Phillips-Medisize’s high-volume manufacturing capabilities to produce hundreds of millions of units on time and in a cost-effective manner.”
