This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Cell Robotic's Lasette laser skin perforator has been approved in the US for home-use by diabetics. The device can be used in place of a lancet to draw blood for glucose testing, a task diabetics may need to perform five or more times a day. Patients who want to obtain the portable battery operated Erbium: YAG laser will first need a prescription together with instruction in how to use it from a doctor or nurse. The Lasette, which was approved for use in hospitals just over a year ago, costs $2,000.
