New Dexcom CGM announcement

Today Dexcom announced FDA approval for their new 7-day CGM sensor (called Dexcom STS SEVEN), and a new version of their software. Both should be available in their third quarter.

The company press release gives some details. But I listened to the webcast of the announcement (39 minutes) and posted a detailed summary on my blog.

Now let me see if I can get hold of one of these babies!

Someone posted a comment that made me realize that Dexcom will probably have to switch to selling the new version of everything very quickly. No-one will want to buy the old sensors now that these new ones are on the market, it’s a classic new version problem. Let’s see what happens.
