So I sat in on a webcast of a Dexcom investors meeting presentation last week, and here is what I learned:
New G4 application is in, hopefully approval by the end of the year, they hope to release it at the Chicago ADA DIABETES EXPO (April 13th, 2013). Better accuracy and smaller receiver I believe are the major improvement. They are also working on the Generation 5 technology which will have the approved accuracy to be as good as our glucometers, as well as new membrane technology that will not be affected by Tylenol.
As far as partnership with pumps, the Animas Vibe just got approved to work with the G4 in EUROPTE. As far as US partnerships, here is the order:
1. Animas of Johnson & Johnson
4. Tandem T-Slim
No word on the timing of any of the pump partnerships here in the US, but hang in there, sounds like things are going to be getting much much better over the next few years.
