On February 26, 1996, an FDA review panel delayed making a final recommendation regarding the Diasensor 1000 until the company presents data on the production model. As of January 2001, there has been no new submission to the FDA.
The Diasensor 1000 is a non-invasive blood glucose sensor. The forearm is placed on the sensor, the START button is pressed, and the process begins. Infrared light passes through the skin into the blood and is reflected back into the sensor. The reflected light is analyzed, converted into a blood glucose level, and displayed on the screen.
The Diasensor 1000 must be individually calibrated. It will be sold via prescription only.
