Novanex’s first product focuses on improving the lives of Type 2 Diabetes patients by providing comfort and convenience in personalized non-invasive blood glucose monitoring.

The product uses Novanex’s novel Optimized Metabolic Calorimetry (OMC) technology, based on the principle of metabolic heat conformation. This method uses energy waves emitted by the body— including heat dissipation, blood flow, and local oxygen level— to determine patient glucose levels.

Proof of principle has been established in multi-hospital studies in China, and clinical trials are scheduled for April in the United States.
