OptiScan Biomedical Receives CE Mark for OptiScanner Automatic Bedside Glucose Monitoring System
Date:9/19/2011

a and glucose variability all prevalent in ICU patients and associated with death, there is a significant need for technology that can enable tighter glycemic control through automated, accurate and near continuous glucose monitoring," stated James S. Krinsley, MD, FCCM, FCCP, Director of Critical Care at Stamford Hospital in Stamford, CT., and Clinical Professor of Medicine, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. "Unfortunately, both the quality and manual nature of the current glucose monitoring technologies prevent ICU physicians from reaching therapeutic goals for their patients.  The result is often that physicians set ICU patient glucose targets higher than they would like in order to avoid the more dangerous potential of hypoglycemia.  A breakthrough glucose monitoring system would help correct this problem and increase ICU patient safety."

The OptiScanner offers several key advantages as compared to current handheld devices including:

  • Measuring glucose in plasma as opposed to current devices which measure in whole blood.  Research has proven that plasma provides more accurate glucose readings than whole blood by eliminating various elements that interfere with accurate measurements, while also more accurately representing the brain's use of glucose in the body. The issue of accuracy is critical as whole blood monitors are impacted by a variety of error sources that can place ICU patients at risk for being over and/or under-dosed with insulin.  It is important to note that the OptiScanner's level of accuracy and sensitivity allows for the measurement of glucose levels up to 1000 mg/dl as compared to handheld meter devices that typically have a limit of 300 mg/dl.
  • Automatically providing serial blood glucose measurements every 15 minutes and offering trending information related to changes in patients' glucose levels.  Handheld devices are not automated, do not offer important trending informati
