Pepex is developing a complete product line of multi-function meters which allow simple testing of blood glucose levels and insulin delivery, appropriate to each glucose level measurement, all contained in a single, palm-sized unit.
Pepex said the meters provide anytime, anywhere tracking and treatment of diabetes.
Pepex chairman Joseph Driver said the company’s new line of simple, all-in-one meters can truly change the lives of diabetes sufferers worldwide.
"Our fully integrated device will test and track regular glucose levels and, in subsequent models, deliver the appropriate amount of insulin," Driver said.
