Who says the people who invent computers, cell phones and other devices that make our life easier should have all the fun?
A New Non-Invasive Method in the Works
Sep 1, 2001 | 
Someday, you could get your insulin by slapping a patch on your skin and activating delivery with an ultrasonic device, say researchers in Pennsylvania, who posted a paper on the subject at the American Diabetes Association's scientific sessions in June.

Bico Gets Hit in the Wallet —Non-invasive BG Meter Maker Under Investigation for Fraud
Feb 1, 2001 | 
Bico Inc. agreed to pay $3.45 million to settle a class-action lawsuit alleging it duped investors into believing the Diasensor - its experimental non-invasive BG meter - was ready for market.
Researchers Prove that Non-invasive Meter Works
Mar 1, 2000 | 
For the first time, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) has demonstrated a capability to accurately measure glucose levels. The device uses fiber optics to illuminate vascular tissue. A tungsten-halogen light is connected to the fiber optic bundle; this is directed at the subject's thumb. Glucose has its own special "spectral signature" which can be differentiated from other molecules in the tissue. The device then processes this information (which is both reflected and absorbed by the fiber optic light) using a mathematical algorithm to come up with an accurate plasma glucose level.
Joslin Diabetes Center to Conduct FDA Trials on Noninvasive Meter
Nov 1, 1999 | 
Biocontrol, one of many hopeful developers of a noninvasive glucose monitoring device, will link with the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. Joslin researchers will conduct clinicals trials for approval of Biocontrol's Diasensor 2000, a device that measures glucose levels with spectroscopy (technology using infrared light).
A Pain-Free Future?
Apr 1, 1998 | 
Several companies are actively working on technologies to improve blood sugar testing and thereby capture a share of the two- to three-billion dollar blood sugar testing market. The goal is to make testing easier, more convenient and, the hope of many, continuous without sticking the finger. Here are some of the companies trying to become the first to offer improved testing and how they plan to do it:
Legislative Motivation for Noninvasive Development
Feb 1, 1998 | 
In November, President Clinton signed the "Food and Drug Modernization Act of 1997," a new law intended to streamline the regulatory process and improve the regulation of medical devices. One section of the law specifically advocates Congress to encourage the development of safe and effective noninvasive blood glucose meters.
