GERMANTOWN, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Senseonics Holdings, Inc. (NYSE-MKT-SENS) today announced it has received CE Mark approval for the Eversense® XL Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System. The Eversense XL System includes an extended life implanted glucose sensor lasting up to 180 days, a removable discreet smart transmitter, and a mobile app for display of real-time glucose readings. The Eversense XL System provides the world’s longest-lasting sensor, compared to the frequent weekly sensor insertions required by other CGM systems.
"We are pleased to announce the CE Mark approval of the Eversense XL System, representing another significant milestone for Senseonics. When we introduced the Eversense System last year, we were providing the longest-wear sensor with up to 90-day wear for people with diabetes. Now with the new Eversense XL System’s even longer sensor duration, patients can extend a single sensor wear over 3 seasons – inserting a new sensor in the Fall which will continue through the Winter to be replaced in Spring,” said Tim Goodnow, CEO and President of Senseonics. “As we continue to advance our product portfolio with extended long-term sensor capabilities, we are offering added convenience to support patients’ continuous glucose management. We are excited to bring this product to market in Europe in the fourth quarter of 2017.”
CE Mark indicates that the product design conforms to the requirements of the Active Implantable Medical Device Directive (AIMDD 90/385/EEC). Eversense XL is indicated for continually measuring interstitial fluid glucose levels in adults and to be used as an adjunctive device to complement information obtained from standard home blood glucose meters.
“We are all aware of the advantages of continuous glucose monitoring seen now in many studies, including improvements in glycemic control, quality of life and reduction in hypoglycemia,” said Dr. Pratik Choudhary, Senior Lecturer and Consultant in Diabetes at King’s College London. “The benefits have been linked with long-term usage, which for many requires changing sensors every week. Eversense now offers a unique option for people who want to use CGM long term, with a long-lasting sensor that has demonstrated accuracy.”
