Sencell -
Driven by Nature

Our Sencell sensor technology will provide real time, long term, accurate glucose readings straight to your smart device. Lifecare is dedicated to develop the next generation of glucose sensors.

Based on the osmotic pressure readings in your body, Sencell is driven by nature.

Inject and forget

No pricking or unpractical transmitters. The Sencell micro sensor will be injected under the skin on your wrist and operate independently to provide you with continuous glycemic information.

Convenient and simple in use

Read the glucose data as often as you want on your smart device. 

Control

The wireless, real time data transfer, with alarm functions of the Sencell, will warn you of high and low glucose levels.

Attributes

Between 1980 and 2017, the number of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes worldwide has more than doubled reaching 425 million people worldwide and is projected to rise to 629 million by 2045 (Intl Diabetes Fed. As of today their lives are dependent on a 40+ year old technology. people with diabetes deserve something better. They deserve a modern tool such as Sencell.

Small size

The planned Sencell dimensions are 2*3*6 mm3. This world leading technology allows the sensor to be injected under the skin by means of a pre-filled (or “pre-loaded”) syringe-like device.

Wireless transferring

Access your glucose data on your smart device. No unpractical transmitters is needed.

Long life span

The Sencell sensor provides additional comfort with it´s minimum 6 months long life span. This is twice as long as comparable technologies.

No surgery

There is no need for surgery when injecting the sensor.

Continous monitoring

Check your glucose data when you want, as often you want. The alarm function will warn you of high and low glucose levels.

Self sustained

No battery or additional equipment is needed. The sensor is self-sustained with energy – working on energy pulses received from the reader.

Benefits

5 million people die every year due to poorly managed glucose levels. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to serious health complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, amputation, nephropathy and cardiac failure, and this just to name a few.

More effective methods which can detect, monitor and control this disease, require development of new tools. The Sencell will provide people with diabetes functions far beyond from what present day products and technology does.

Inject and forget

No pricking or unpractical transmitters. The Sencell micro sensor will be injected under the skin on your wrist and operate independently to provide you with continuous glycemic information.

Convenient and simple in use

Low cost

In order to help as many people as possible, the Sencell will be designed to have as low cost as possible.

Science and technology

The Sencell is small, complex, self-sustained implantable sensor which is designed to continuously monitor your glucose.

The osmotic sensor is an implantable 3D printed nano-sensor for subcutaneous location, minimum 6 months usage time, wireless, continuous, read out unit real time glucose measurement for diabetes management.
The main objective of the Sencell Implantable Miniaturized Osmotic Sensor Device is to provide a convenient, efficient, reliable, painless, accurate and durable continuous glucose measurement (CGM) solution at a low cost for daily use to people with diabetes. The unique and advanced technology of Sencell offers a novel and disruptive technology for the global market.
The Sencell glucose monitoring system includes an osmotic pressure sensor (sensor core), transmitter (sensor electronics) and a mobile medical application (reader) to continuously measure glucose in the interstitial fluid.
The sensor device will be further miniaturized to meet the anticipated final size specifications, to become implantable with a simple insertion procedure and to improve performance with respect to accuracy, sensitivity, stability and robustness. A second source for both the glucose and the pressure information will be introduced by a cantilever nanoscale 3D printed technology.
The cantilever based glucose sensor will be used as a reference glucose sensor recalibrating signal drift in the osmotic pressure sensor approach. The sensor (with dimensions in the µm scale) will be implemented on the surface of the osmotic chamber with direct access to the interstitial fluid. The overall size of the two cantilevers is about 500 µm in substrate length and1 mm in substrate width. The cantilevers are about 50×50 µm² (length × width) and feature a thickness of 100 nm to 300 nm. These small dimensions allow easy incorporation of the cantilever array in the existing Sencellimplant designs. Additionally, the cantilevers’ small dimensions enable a high sensitivity.
The proposed use of the nano3DSense™-technology allows for a high degree of pressure transducer miniaturization and enables to easily incorporate even a second pressure transducer allowing to measure changes in external pressure (pressure reference). The strain sensors are directly 3D-printed onto the membrane with the nano3DSense™-printing technology. In this way, the transducer membrane can be made of any material, including biocompatible metals (e.g. titanium).
