Embecta to add Intuity glucose reader to portfolio

Embecta has added an all-in-one, push-button fingerstick glucose reader to its portfolio.

Launched this past April as a spinout from medtech giant BD, Embecta has signed an agreement with Intuity to co-promote the latter’s Pogo Automatic system among U.S. healthcare professionals.

Intuity’s FDA-cleared, handheld device combines lancets with replaceable cartridges containing 10 glucose testing strips, allowing users to collect blood and obtain a result in a single step. The carousel-like cartridge rotates to provide clean testing hardware for each use, while levels are displayed on a screen and wirelessly synced with a smartphone app.

The over-the-counter system is meant as a simpler alternative to manually performed blood sugar tests, but not as frequent a gauge as continuous glucose monitoring systems that require sensors embedded under the skin.
