GWave non-invasive radio frequency-based glucose monitor starting clinical trials; aggregate data (n=53) demonstrates 96% readings in Zone A compared to venous glucose
Dr. Irl Hirsch (University of Washington) presented a new dataset on the non-invasive GWave glucose monitor developed by Israel-based Hagar where Dr. Hirsch serves as a medical advisor.
Hagar Lands Funding To Develop Noninvasive Glucose Monitoring Watch
Hagar is planning to put its GWave non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology in a smartwatch and eventually sell the technology to a larger medtech player that can market it globally.
Diabetes startup brews up $11M after 'serendipitous spill' led to creation of new CGM tech
Many of the most groundbreaking discoveries have happened accidentally: The microwave oven, for one, was developed after physicist Percy Spencer noticed a chocolate bar in his pocket had melted while he was experimenting with a magnetron.
Hagar Brings in $11.7M for CGM Conceptualized from Tea Spill
The financing follows $4.4 million the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company raised earlier this year.
Hagar has raised $11.7 million in a series B round to push forward GWave, a non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring technology, that originated from a spilled cup of tea.
HAGAR Secures $11.7M Series B Funding to Advance Non-Invasive Blood Glucose Monitoring Technology
HAGAR, the developer of GWave, the world’s first non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring technology that uses RF waves to measure glucose levels in the blood, announced an $11.7 million Series B funding round led by a returning investor, Columbia Pacific.
