REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gluco-ChaserTM Inc. is pleased to announce that its disposable strip BGM (blood glucose monitoring) prototype sensor with non-enzymatic electrochemistry achieved a 5-second glucose reading from human whole blood (Applied Materials Today, 10, 24, March 2018, “Disposable Non-enzymatic Blood Glucose Sensing Strip Based on Nanoporous Platinum Particles” https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352940717302445). It does not compromise the accuracy of Gluco-Chaser’s proprietary nanoporous sensor technology (Error Grid Analysis A+B 98%; N=100). This also shows the possibility of delivering strong commercial impact for glucose monitoring in general, as a strong indicator of success for Gluco-Chaser’s CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) working calibration-free for 5 days in animal tests.
Last November, Gluco-Chaser reported its working prototype of the CGM sensor (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171121005451/en/Gluco-Chaser-Releases-Working-Prototype-Proprietary-Non-Enzymatic-Electrochemical). With the features of high throughput production of non-enzymatic nanoporous layers, Gluco-Chaser is expected to offer highly competitive pricing for both CGM and BGM. Moreover, its CGM sensors accomplished conditioning within 30 minutes, which is unprecedented.
Gluco-Chaser has been working with Knobbe Martens, a leading IP law firm (Irvine, CA). In 2017, the company filed two US provisional patent applications and five US non-provisional patent applications. Gluco-Chaser plans to file additional US patent applications and also pursue international protection for its inventions. Here is a list of the company’s non-provisional patent applications:
|15/844,479||Glucose Sensing System and Method|
|15/844,484||Method of Making Colloid and Nanoporous Layer|
|15/844,507||Non-Enzymatic Glucose-Sensing Device with Nanoporous Structure and Conditioning of the Nanoporous Structure|
|15/845,668||Glucose Sensor Apparatus Addressing Interference and Ascorbic Acid and Acetaminophen|
|15/844,515||Glucose Sensor Device with Maltose Blocking Layer|
These are intended to renew and upgrade the existing patents, describing the underlying sciences and its relevant manufacture processing techniques. They include (1) manufacture-compatible, high throughput method to prepare nanoporous platinum (US 15/844,484); (2) unprecedented 30-minute conditioning of a CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) sensor built with the non-enzymatic nanoporous platinum electrode (US 15/844,507); and (3) calibration-free testing of an animal subject (US 15/844,479; US 15/844,484; US 15/844,507).
