WALTHAM, Mass., Jun 01, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO) announced today that it will exhibit at the annual meeting of The Endocrine Society in Boston on June 4-6, 2011. The exhibition will include a demonstration of its newest product - NC-stat®|DPNCheck which is a fast, accurate, and quantitative test for the evaluation of systemic neuropathies such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).
NC-stat DPNCheck Benefits
- May aid in the early detection, confirmation, and monitoring of DPN
- Measures sural nerve conduction velocity - a standard biomarker for subclinical and symptomatic DPN
- Sensitive and specific for DPN1,2, and predictive of its complications3
- Straightforward clinical interpretation
- Cost effective
"We are excited to preview NC-stat DPNCheck at ENDO 2011 as it a key milestone in our aggressive timetable to launch this product into the diabetes market," said Shai N. Gozani M.D., PhD., President and Chief Executive Officer of NeuroMetrix. "This point-of-care device should help address the need for a widely available, objective and standardized test for diabetic neuropathy."
NeuroMetrix encourages ENDO 2011 attendees to stop by booth #833-835 to:
- Learn more about NC-stat DPNCheck.
- View a live demonstration.
- Inquire about a no-obligation evaluation.
- Meet with NeuroMetrix representatives.
The device is a modified version of the widely used NC-stat® device which has been shown to accurately detect DPN1,2. NC-stat DPNCheck will be commercially available in the second half of the year. To learn more, click here.
