Polymer Technology Systems is launching its point-of-care blood chemistry diagnostic device for both professional and in-home use by diabetics. The BioScanner 2000 is similar to a glucose meter but in addition carries tests for HDL and LDL and total cholesterol, ketone, triglycerides, haemoglobin A1c, microalbumin and creatinine. Privately-owned Polymer Technology based in Indianapolis, Indiana, has US FDA clearance for the glucose, cholesterol, HDL and ketone tests. Applications for the others will be filed by the end of the year. The company says that early diagnosis can improve diabetes management and reduce side effects.
