Diabetes

Constantly Service The Diabetes Market With Our Constant Glucose Monitoring Devices & Components
The diabetes market in the United States is anticipated to grow at a rate of over 6.5% in the period between 2022-2027.  Certain device segments of the diabetes market are expected to grow beyond 10% annually over this time period as well.  The driving factors for this market are obesity, physical inactivity, increased junk food and alcohol consumption, etc. 

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by excessively high blood glucose levels (sugar). Diabetes is majorly divided into 2 categories: Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.

While the medication and treatments for each of the two categories differ, there is one thing that immensely helps the patients in both categories. 

Constant Glucose Monitoring Devices — an advanced technological device that has is replacing the traditional ‘finger-prick method to monitor and manage blood sugar levels at any time.
How Does A Continuous Glucose Monitoring Device Work?
A CGM is a sensor utilizing advanced software that monitors blood glucose levels continuously 24/7. Paired with a readout display, phone or dedicated, this allows patients to quickly scan the patterns of their blood sugar levels over the course of a few hours or days. Since diabetes is becoming one of the most prevalent health conditions in present times, Continuous glucose monitoring devices are a really handy and effective way to monitor and manage blood sugar levels for people prone to this condition.

AMETEK Engineered Medical Components is involved in supplying the global leading medical providers in the high-growth continuous glucose monitoring market. We manufacture advanced technology sensor components for different kinds of continuous glucose monitoring devices for our customers.

Some of these sensors are precisely made with laser-welded titanium-based components that are 100% safe to be implanted in the patient's body for monitoring blood sugar levels. With regular technology advancements, we’ve adapted our manufacturing processes to the latest and improved capabilities. Other sensors are made with precision ablation of the wires and fine plastic parts critical to the efficacy of the CGM devices.

Our brand, Avicenna, is mainly involved with laser ablating the coating on the engineered wires that sense the body fluids, which are reflective of blood sugar levels, underneath the skin. In addition to the wires, we also ablate fine plastic (PEEK material) for glucose monitoring devices. The Laserage brand focuses on metal cutting and welding including the components for diabetes sensor assemblies.

Our Biomaterials:
We contribute to the manufacturing of diabetes implants and devices with industry-approved and standardized biomaterials.

Titanium and titanium alloys make up the majority of our implants. While other implants are made of stainless steel for durability. Along with dealing with metal implants, we also work with non-metal implant materials including PEEK, alumina, zirconia, and others.

These biomaterials are reliable and approved by the industry. For diabetic devices to offer patients the best care, biomaterials made of metal, plastic, and ceramic are employed to give precise resistance, strength, and durability.

Our Commitment:
At AMETEK EMC, we utilize the latest in precision laser processing capabilities and technological advancements. We bring multiple advantages to our clients including advanced engineering, and a cumulative experience of over 30 years in the industry. Precision cutting of tubes and sheets as well as precision welding with lasers is the key to our capabilities. And, with our technological and engineering expertise, we provide the best solutions to your diabetic end-product needs. We also work on manufacturing custom solutions for our clients specific to their project requirements.
