About M Pharmaceutical Inc.
The Company has signed an arms-length agreement to acquire and commercialize the rights to a biomedical device for the self-monitoring of blood glucose, primarily by diabetics. This device, called the eMosquito, is based on a novel in-plane actuator designed to provide minimally-invasive skin penetration to be used by persons with diabetes. The objective of the eMosquito is to obtain whole blood samples by penetrating the skin to shallower depths and in less sensitive areas of the body. Persons with diabetes have traditionally used the "finger prick" method to monitor/test their blood glucose levels. The blood sample was obtained by pricking the finger tip, a highly sensitive area of the body. The eMosquito is envisioned to be worn like a patch with small needles designed to puncture the skin just deep enough to draw blood without affecting the nerve endings and causing little or no pain. The commercial development of the eMosquito will require the successful coordination and execution of a wide variety of technology disciplines.
