Biosign certified for non-invasive blood glucose monitoring
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Thursday, February 11, 2010 – Biosign Technologies Inc. (CNSX: BIO)
(“Biosign” or the “Company”) today announced it has been assessed and certified as meeting the requirements of ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485-2003, and Directive 93/42/EEC (“CE Mark”) for automated wrist blood pressure and blood glucose monitors with computer controls. The certificates allow Biosign to add non-invasive blood glucose monitoring to its offerings in the European Union and other regions that recognize these certifications.
Practically, UFIT® TEN-20 is a blood pressure monitor that also reads blood glucose. There is no additional hardware. Measurements are completely non-invasive, with results verifiable for accuracy and relevance.
“Researchers have attempted for years to find a solution that can eliminate the need for pricking the skin and drawing blood to measure glucose levels”, said Peter Tassiopoulos, Biosign’s Chief Operating Officer. “UFIT® TEN-20 solves this issue and, more importantly, it keeps an audit trail of every measurement taken for future reference.”
The company is scaling resources for support and manufacturing to prepare for the anticipated demand by the market for the newly certified capability of the UFIT® system. “We can now proceed confidently on executing our ambitious plans for 2010.” said Radu Leca, President and CEO of Biosign.
