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.
Our headquarter is located in Bergen, Norway. The research and development is performed through our research partner across Europe.
Lifecare AS (Ltd.) is listed on Oslo Stock Exchange (LIFE-ME), and has been dedicated to the research and development of medical sensors for health monitoring since 06/07.
The Sencell-technology is protected by patents owned by Lifecare A/S (LIFE-ME). These patents are granted until year 2030 and new patents are pending.
Proof of concept of the proprietary osmotic pressure sensing technology has been successfully performed in two preclinical trials 2016 – 2017, proving that the pressure technology is able to track interstitial glucose and providing stable references.
Further miniaturization of the injectable glucose sensor highlights the planned device evolution and the accuracy of the employed 3D nanosensor technology measurement system. Data shows that the Sencell technology probably employs the smallest MEMS based pressure sensor in the world, with a reliable reproducibility of measurement results and a pressure resolution, which should lead to a resolution of glucose differences higher than CGM-devices currently on the market.
Lifecare is now continuing the development of a wireless sensor prototype suitable for first long term human clinical.
