Blood Glucose Sensor

Blood sugar level readings are important for those who have to monitor them. For the medical device company, manufacturability and cost must also be balanced with functionality. Nuvation designed this ultra-low power blood glucose meter that has a long battery life, data logging functionality, and a cost-optimized PCB design. Nuvation was selected for this project because of our extensive experience delivering designs to Tier 1 medical device manufacturers, design-for manufacture and design-for-certification.
