Kevin Sayer sold his first glucose sensor in 1994. More than twenty years later, the chief executive of Dexcom (NSDQ:DXCM) still believes that glucose-monitoring technology can transform the way patients manage their diabetes.
This week, Dexcom won FDA approval for its latest continuous glucose monitor. The G6 system is the first of the company’s that does not require a finger-prick for calibration and is also cleared as “fully interoperable” with other medical devices, like insulin pumps and decision support software.
“This Gen 6 system brings to fruition all that I envisioned when I first saw a sensor in the 90’s,” Sayer told Drug Delivery Business News.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
