Pacific Diabetes Technologies (PDT) is dedicated to the goal of creating an accessible integrated artificial pancreas. Combining the artificial pancreas and sensor chemistry knowledge of the Portland PDT team with the microelectronic fabrication expertise of Professors Greg Herman and John Conley of Oregon State University, PDT is well situated to develop devices that are needed for a reliable artificial pancreas to market. These devices will help make life simpler for people with Type 1 diabetes or insulin-treated Type 2 diabetes. THESE DEVICES ARE NOT YET APPROVED FOR HUMAN USE.
PDT’s first device is a unified dual-function glucose sensing and hormone delivery system for use within an artificial pancreas. This integrated solution combines multiple amperometric glucose sensing units with a multi-hormone delivery conduit that is ideal for diabetes management.
