Biocontrol Technology Inc. of Pennsylvania will give away its first non-invasive blood glucose sensor to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation (JDF) for a charity auction. The sensor will be awarded to the highest bidder, with all proceeds going to the JDF. Biocontrol Technology plans to file a 510K application with the Food and Drug Administration soon, and hopes the new sensor will be available in the Spring of 1994.
