Event Details: 

Continuous glucose monitoring has been the target of hot pursuit in the last two decades, but so far only two players have a substantial presence in the US market, and every single non-invasive technology has so far failed to gain traction in the marketplace. iCGM is a silicon-based, minimally invasive, low cost glucose sensor, with a smart phone or wearable device back end. It hopes to address the growing market need for diabetes care. This talk will also briefly cover some topics in the Chinese medical market.
