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

on, and typical staffing levels in the ICU do not allow routine blood glucose monitoring at frequencies of even every one to two hours.
  • Attaching directly to patients' existing intravenous (IV) lines and enabling the use of already existing catheters.  This allows blood samples to be drawn automatically as opposed to handheld devices which require manual blood draws for each measurement.  
  • Automating the heparizination of the patients' blood sample without returning heparin back to the patient.  This is a critical advancement as it eliminates the risk of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), a potentially deadly complication.
  • Incorporating a range of ease-of-use features including: touch screen; graphic user interface that virtually eliminates the need for in-service to assist in set up or operation; and reagent-free measurement which removes the need for daily calibration.

  • Extensive evaluation of the OptiScanner in a number of studies completed in animals and diabetic patients has resulted in the publication of multiple peer-reviewed papers demonstrating the safety and efficacy of the OptiScanner.  Furthermore the system's measurement technology has been studied in a variety of ICU settings involving a broad range of critically ill patients, with results from this research being presented at five major medical conferences.  OptiScanner is broadly protected by OptiScan's portfolio of 20 issued U.S. patents which cover key technologies such as fluid separation, automatic sample anti-coagulation without return to patient and network connectivity, among others.

    "This CE Mark certification is a key milestone for OptiScan in our efforts to improve the overall standard of care delivered in ICUs around the world.  There is a broad consensus in the medical community regarding the need for automated, continuous and highly accurate glucose monitoring in the ICU and we believe the OptiScanner is positio
