Launch of DiaMonTech’s IR-based Blood Glucose Meter to Spur Growth Opportunities
Conventional blood glucose meters involved the need for invasive techniques for diagnosis. The most commonly used methods involved taking blood samples with the help of needle pricks in fingers. The needle prick method was painful for many users and it caused discomfort to some.
Therefore, there has been a constant need for an alternative to the invasive devices for continuous glucose monitoring. In 2018, DiaMonTech announced the launch of a compact blood glucose meter. The device performed on an infra-red technology that is used to count the glucose molecules. This product is likely to transform existing blood glucose monitoring techniques and is likely to witness high demand from around the world. The advent of non-invasive devices is likely to induce growth in the global blood glucose meters’ market.
