Know Labs Completes Build of Portable Generation 1 Prototype for Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring

Know Labs revealed the next stage in the development of its proprietary Bio-RFID™ technology – the Generation (Gen) 1 Device. Gen 1 incorporates Know Labs’ Bio-RFID sensor – which has been proven as technically feasible and stable in delivering repeatable results in measuring blood glucose when used in a lab environment – in a portable device.

Currently, there are no medical-grade, commercially available, non-invasive means of measuring blood glucose. The completion of Gen 1 brings Know Labs closer to achieving its ultimate goal of delivering the world’s first FDA-cleared non-invasive blood glucose monitor for the billions of people living with diabetes and pre-diabetes worldwide.

The Gen 1 prototype is a portable research lab, designed to be a powerful data collection device. Data collection in clinical research is the foundation for further algorithm development and refinement. This device will allow Know Labs to scale data collection tenfold, including testing across more diverse participant populations and scenarios.

“The completion of Gen 1 marks a significant engineering achievement for the company and, more broadly, for innovation in medical diagnostics. Many have tried to non-invasively ascertain glucose and have not succeeded or remain years away from success. Know Labs and our world-class partners overcame incredible engineering complexities over several years and through hundreds of iterations to achieve this level of progress,” said Ron Erickson, CEO and Chairman at Know Labs. “The Bio-RFID sensor is a novel technology that is leading the way to an entirely new branch of science, and Gen 1 takes us closer to our goal of enabling a better way of life for people living with diabetes.”
