The company uses a combination of proprietary biomaterials with micro-analyzer platforms that contain sensor chips to measure different physiological properties and signal processing chips that contain the control electronics for the medical device. The company’s monitoring systems can be used for intermittent or continuous monitoring of blood, or other body fluids, and for parameters such as glucose, pH, gasses, and electrolytes.
