Seraccess® AGM - Automated and regular glucose measurement for the monitoring, detection and treatment of dysglycemia.
Seraccess® AGM is a system that revolutionizes the way disglycemia is treated today in the hospital, and especially in the intensive care unit (ICU). Avoiding dysglycemia is a key goal in the treatment of patients in ICU.1-5 Unfortunately, both hyper- and hypoglycemia in hospitals are common and related to increased morbidity, mortality, and respectively increased health care costs.6 Automated glucose measurement reduces resource utilization and nursing costs, as well as length of stay in the ICU by more than a day.5,7,8 Seraccess® AGM is a system that can be integrated in existing installations to provide optimum glucose monitoring.
Current glucose measurement methods are mainly based on manually drawn blood samples. There are often large time intervals between measurements, and the total time needed by the nursing personnel generates significant cost. Seraccess® AGM performs automated and regular blood sampling, using an already inserted catheter. Only a tiny amount of blood is required for each measurement and the system provides highly accurate and precise glucose values at short time intervals. Seraccess® AGM enables physicians to follow a patient's course of blood glucose in a much closer way and empowers confident treatment decisions.
The automated, regular, accurate and precise glucose measurement provided by Seraccess® AGM will empower confident treatment decisions and can lead to improved clinical outcomes. Furthermore, hospitals benefit from significant cost reduction by eliminating manual glucose measurements.
How much blood is needed per day to measure blood glucose every 15 minutes?
The Seraccess® technology only needs 20µl to 30µl of blood to perform a measurement. At a frequency of 15 minutes, this results in 96 measurements per day which amounts to just 2ml to 3ml of blood needed per day.
Over 200,000 beds in intensive care units in the US and Europe alone translate to a yearly potential of at least 35 million treatment days generated by about 9 million patients. An ICU bed equipped with the Seraccess® AGM durable unit will host around 100 patients per year, who will consume 200 disposable units. Overall, the value of the durable market is estimated at 1.4 bn CHF and the disposable market at 2.7 bn CHF.
