LOUGHBOROUGH, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nemaura Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: NMRD), a medical technology company developing the wireless sugarBEAT® non-invasive glucose monitoring system for adjunctive use by persons with diabetes, today announced it has commenced expansion into new manufacturing facilities, enabling large scale production of its proprietary sensor technology.
Nemaura recently reported positive results for its European sugarBEAT® trials, and, in preparation for commercial launch, has initiated scale-up manufacture of the various sugarBEAT® components alongside facilities for final assembly and packaging. As part of this process, Nemaura has expanded its manufacturing and assembly capabilities by occupying additional space within Nemaura’s existing headquarters site at Loughborough Science Park in the UK. This expansion is expected to enable Nemaura to meet anticipated demand arising from the planned sugarBEAT® launch in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Australia.
SugarBEAT® is expected to launch initially in the UK upon achieving CE approval, which is anticipated in the coming months. Additional US clinical studies to facilitate FDA clearance are expected to commence in the second quarter, with further studies expected thereafter for the use of sugarBEAT® in critical care settings.
