VOLUNTEER!

If you like the sound of this non-invasive sensor, then help Afon by

volunteering to wear one and give feedback.

"During the product development stage we may need volunteers to

either wear a prototype device or give feedback on design or useability,"

says Afon Technology's CEO and sensor creator Sabih Chaudhry.

The legacy of

GlucoWatch

Cygnus received final FDA

approval for their transdermal

glucose sensor for adults

18 years and older in March

2001. They spent over 10 years

developing this device that

measures glucose through the

skin using an AutoSensor, a

replaceable pad that clips into

the back of the GlucoWatch.

As noted at the time, sweating

and skipped readings were

problematic. When sweat

glands open up due to heat,

hypoglycemia or exercise,

the device was unable to

measure glucose. All in all, as

the first device of its kind, the

GlucoWatch was high demand

despite these problems

because no one really likes to

blood test, they just don't have

any other options.

Glossary

Electrophoresis: a laboratory

technique used to separate

DNA, RNA, or protein

molecules based on their

size and electrical charge.

An electric current is used

to move molecules to be

separated through a gel. Pores

in the gel work like a sieve,

allowing smaller molecules

to move faster than larger

molecules.

Photonics: the physical

science of light (photon)

generation, detection,

and manipulation through

emission, transmission,

modulation, signal processing,

switching, amplification,

and sensing.

for a CE mark in early 2022. Although

Covid-19 has disrupted many of our

plans, we are still pushing ahead

with product development. Our aim

is to commercialise a real time and

non-invasive blood glucose monitor

for people with diabetes which will

alert the wearer (or their carer or a

physician) when blood sugar levels

move outside set parameters. The

device will reduce the need for fiddly

and sometimes painful fingerpricks

and will give the wearer peace of

mind that they are within a safe

range. The 'working title' for the

sensor is Glucowear."

Professor de Vries, Medical

Director at Profil, the diabetes

research organisation in Germany

specialising in internal medicine

and endocrinology, and principal

investigator at the University of

Amsterdam's Faculty of Medicine,

said: "We evaluated the Afon

device under both hyper-and

hypoglycaemic (high and low blood

glucose levels) conditions during the

clinical trials and we were surprised

and excited by the possibilities of this

technology."
