[IP] laser tester

Diabetes Laser Blood Test Approved (12/08/98)

By Lauran Neergaard AP Medical Writer 
WASHINGTON (AP) - The government has approved a battery-operated laser that
millions of diabetics can use at home to test their blood sugar without the
pain of pricking their fingers several times each day.

Cell Robotics Inc.'s laser, called Lasette, uses a powerful beam of light
to vaporize a tiny hole in the fingers of children and adult diabetics, so
they can perform the blood tests vital to keep their diabetes in check.
