Implantable Glucose Telemetry

The HD-XG glucose telemetry implant offers preclinical diabetes and metabolic disease scientists a novel solution to obtain continuous, real-time, blood glucose measurements in laboratory animals. 

Researchers can now collect data for 28 days or longer while reducing animal stress and measurement variability commonly associated with glucose test strip measurements. Adoption of the HD-XG in preclinical research studies will ultimately lead to the development of better drugs, better devices, and better therapies for humans.

Several studies have already been conducted with DSI's glucose telemetry. Simply click on the poster title below to view the poster abstract. Copies of posters are available upon request.
