Insulin pump manufacturer Insulet has combined with DexCom, a specialist in making glucose monitoring systems, in order to integrate the latter's technology into Insulet's handheld OmniPod system personal diabetes manager (PDM). The non-exclusive agreement sees San Diego, California-based DexCom provide Insulet with access to its continuous glucose monitoring technology, which when incorporated into the PDM, will allow diabetic patients to access real-time glucose values and receive alarms concerning high or low glucose levels. The two companies will develop the product over 2008, with product launch expected in mid-2009.
