PositiveID Corp. has received 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration to market its "iglucose" technology for diabetes management.

The iglucose product enables the transmission of readings from a data-capable glucometer to a diabetes management Web portal where diabetics can gather and track their glucose levels and permit access to family members, caregivers and clinicians. The product eliminates the keeping of paper-based logbooks and helps increase self-management, according to the Delray Beach, Fla.-based vendor.

Data is transmitted via cellular networks; a wireless data plan is not required. The company has wireless infrastructure agreements with AT&T in the United States and Rogers Communications in Canada, and continues to solicit other companies.

Glucose meters supporting the system include Johnson & Johnson's LifeScan OneTouch and Nipro Diagnostic's True products, with PositiveID seeking additional partners. The company is targeting iglucose to health insurers and home health providers. More information is available at iglucose.com.
