GlySure Secures CE Mark and Launches World’s First Continuous Intravascular Glucose Monitoring System

 

 

GlySure Limited today announced that it has secured the CE Mark for the world’s first and only Continuous Intravascular Glucose Monitoring System (CIGMS). The initial use of the GlySure™ CIGMS is to enhance blood glucose management among adult cardiac surgery patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The need for enhanced glucose management exists within all critical care settings.1,2 GlySure is currently conducting a UK-based multicentre trial designed to enable use of the GlySure CIGMS across all adult Intensive Care patients.
