What is the target patient population for the OptiScanner?

Critically ill patients frequently suffer from stress-induced hyperglycemia, glycemic variability or hypoglycemia which has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. The OptiScanner 5000, which directly measures plasma glucose levels using an integrated blood centrifuge and spectrometer, automatically measures and trends glucose levels every 15 minutes, delivering an early warning that supports proactive intervention.
