Calibration Validity Now Corresponds to Lifespan of Personal Ear Clip
ASHKELON, Israel, Mar 17, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Integrity Applications, Inc. (otcqb:IGAP), developer of the GlucoTrack® model DF-F noninvasive blood glucose measurement device, received CE Mark approval from Dekra Certification B.V., its Notified Body in the European Union, to extend its claim from a monthly recalibration to a six-month calibration validity of the GlucoTrack model DF-F device.
With this extended validity, the initial calibration of the GlucoTrack model DF-F device will be valid for the entire six-month approved lifespan of the Personal Ear Clip (PEC), adding yet another important advantage to using GlucoTrack DF-F. Prior to receiving this validation, Integrity had obtained a CE Mark for GlucoTrack DF-F in Europe based upon a monthly recalibration.
Avner Gal, President and CEO of Integrity Applications, said, “Official confirmation of our claim that the calibration of GlucoTrack model DF-F is valid for a full six months is a major advantage of our device, as users are now only required to calibrate the device twice a year, when they replace the PEC. Recalibration is a major hurdle in noninvasive measurements, especially in noninvasive glucose monitors, and to the best of our knowledge, GlucoTrack is the only glucose monitoring device with this feature.”
About GlucoTrack ®
GlucoTrack features a small sensor that clips to the earlobe and measures the wearer’s blood glucose level by taking measurements using three technologies. The measurements are analyzed using a proprietary algorithm and displayed on a small handheld device, the size of a mobile phone. The derived blood glucose measurement is also announced verbally, making it suitable for the elderly and vision-impaired diabetes patients. The company has obtained a CE Mark for its GlucoTrack Model DF-F in Europe (June 2013) and intends to seek Food and Drug Administration approval for GlucoTrack in the United States.
