Energy Micro recently revealed its role in enabling an all-in-one solution for the management of diabetes. Brighter One is a pocket-sized product that integrates all the functions needed to monitor blood glucose and inject insulin. The solution logs insulin doses and glucose levels automatically and offers diabetics an easier and more convenient way to manage their daily routines and enjoy healthier and longer lives.

Brighter AB, a global provider of innovative diabetes solutions, has adopted Ucaretron's 32bit blood glucose module in a design that provides a complete solution for diabetics who require frequent insulin injections. Allmedicus Co. Ltd., a leading provider of innovative medical diagnositic instruments, also based in Korea and known for its "Gluco Dr" brand, has adapted its biosensor strips specifically for use with this monitor. These strips are based on its cutting-edge FAD-GDH enzyme technology and use pure gold electrodes to meet exacting quality and certification standards.

"Energy Micro's EFM32 enables us to achieve longer battery life along with the precise measurement needed to meet our customer's requirements. Moreover, the 32bit CPU embodied in Brighter One? establishes the next generation of glucose measuring systems, providing the accuracy and reliability essential for the care of diabetes," commented Dr. Jee Hwan Jang, Ucaretron's CEO.

Insulin-treated diabetics typically need a lancet, test strips, blood glucose meter, injection device and some form of data log to manage their treatment. The Brighter One solution reduces the number of items a diabetic needs to carry from five to one in what Allmedicus describes as "a truly ingenious integrated diabetes management device".
