Shaping the future of the glucose monitoring industry has been at the forefront of Gluco-Chaser Inc’s missions. True to its mission, the company has optimized the relevant technologies for over a decade.
The advantages of Gluco-Chaser Inc’s platform technologies make Gluco-ChaserTM a primary leader in the huge and rapidly expanding market of glucose monitoring.
Gluco-ChaserTM employs a non-enzymatic electrochemical sensing scheme.
It is the first of its kind, and has long been optimized for mass production since its introduction through a highly cited journal publication.
The glucose detection mechanism and the corresponding electrode preparation methods are proprietary.
