Freedom Meditech to Provide Live Demonstration of ClearPath DS-120 Eye Scan at the 13th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting
Date:10/30/2013

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Freedom Meditech, Inc. has announced that the company has been invited to present a live demonstration of the ClearPath DS-120™ at the 13th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, the premier event in the United States for showcasing latest technological advances for people with diabetes. Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2013, the ClearPath DS-120 is a first-in-class, non-invasive tool designed to quickly and accurately measure autofluorescence through a six second scan of the crystalline lens of the eye. A significant number of independent peer-reviewed studies have suggested that elevated lens autofluorescence may be an early indicator of the presence of diabetes.

"The Diabetes Technology Meeting provides an opportunity to educate diabetes professionals about the clinical value of non-invasive lens autofluorescence and the associated market size estimated at $4 billion worldwide," said Craig Misrach, CEO of Freedom Meditech. "ClearPath can facilitate the co-management of patients between physicians and eye care professionals, which in turn, can maximize earlier detection and monitoring of patients at risk of developing complications related to diabetes."

The meeting will feature more than 500 clinicians and scientists from 24 countries and will focus on applying science and technology to prevent and treat diabetes. The goal of the meeting is to facilitate the creation of new and cost-effective tools between diabetes thought leaders and developers.

"The most cutting-edge inventions in the global diabetes marketplace are featured at the Diabetes Technology Meeting and it's only appropriate that non-invasive lens autofluorescence be included," said David C. Klonoff, M.D., F.A.C.P., chair of the Diabetes Technology Meeting. "Technologies that enable the early detection of diabetes with a footprint capable of reaching a wider patient population are essential to disease intervention and reversing the direction of the Type 2 diabetes epidemic."

Freedom Meditech will conduct a live demonstration of the ClearPath at 2:10 p.m. on November 2, 2013 at the Diabetes Technology Meeting taking place at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, California.

About ClearPath DS-120™

The ClearPath DS-120™ Lens Fluorescence Biomicroscope is cleared by FDA as a tool for the measurement of autofluorescence by scanning the crystalline lens of the eye with a blue light. In independent scientific studies published in peer-reviewed journals, elevated autofluorescence measurements have been linked to high levels of advanced glycosylated end products which accumulate as a result of the aging process and the presence of systemic disease.

The ClearPath scan is pain free, takes just six seconds and produces an immediate, quantitative result available to the patent and healthcare provider. Unlike some eye exams, the scan does not require dilation. The ClearPath is completely non-invasive and does not require a blood draw to produce a result. The device has a small footprint, sits on a table top, and employs an easy to use touch screen display that can be wirelessly linked to a practitioner's electronic medical record system.
