This article was originally published in Clinica
Technical Chemicals and Products (TCPI) expects to introduce its non-invasive transdermal glucose patch to the US market by the end of next year. The product of a joint development between TCPI and Pharmetrix (which is now part of TCPI), the patch is applied to the patient's skin for five minutes and then read using a version of the small pocket-sized monitor currently used with TCPI's blood sampling devices. The system is expected to cost no more than finger stick devices and be as economical to use as blood test strips.
