We aim to complete the development, testing and introduction of the worlds first long term implantable micro sensor to give people with diabetes the modern tool they deserve for monitoring glucose levels.
Detecting glucose by the principle of the osmotic pressure holds promise of a glucose sensing technology that is suitable for both miniaturization and long term continuous monitoring in vivo without causing patient discomfort or reducing quality of life. It also offers several major advantages compared to current blood glucose measurement technologies.
Lifecare AS (Ltd.) is a privately owned, independent company that has been dedicated to the research and development of medical sensors for health monitoring since 06/07.
Our headquarter is located in Bergen, Norway. The research and development is performed through our research partner across Europe.
Lifecare is listed on Oslo Stock Exchange (LIFE-ME).
The Sencell-technology is protected by patents owned by Lifecare AS. These patents are granted until year 2030 and new patents are pending.
The prototypes of Sencell were evaluated in -vitro to achieve performance data and to demonstrate the working principle. The pre clinical trials # 1 and # 2 were successfully completed fall-2016. Proof-of-concept was demonstrated. The results prove that the Lifecare osmotic pressure technology is able to track interstitial glucose. It provides a stable reference for the future developmental steps and will help Lifecare to further miniaturize the sensor until successful clinical evaluation in human clinical trials.
Our technology provides continuous, accurate glucose data straight to you smart device.Learn More
The Lifecare team has both the knowledge and will to make life a little bit easier for people with diabetes. Together we work to give diabetics better control of their glucose levels.
