WALTHAM, Mass., Apr 13, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO) announced today that it will preview its newest product - NC-stat® | DPNCheck - at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), taking place April 13-17 in San Diego, CA. NC-stat® | DPNCheck 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 DPN,², and predictive of its complications³
- Straightforward clinical interpretation
- Cost effective
"We are excited to preview NC-stat® | DPNCheck at AACE 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 widely available, objective and standardized test for diabetic neuropathy."
NeuroMetrix encourages AACE attendees to stop by booth #506 to:
- Learn more about NC-stat® | DPNCheck.
- View a live demonstration.
- Inquire about the no-obligation trial.
- Meet with NeuroMetrix representatives.
The device is a modified version of the widely used NC-stat® device which has been shown to accurately detect DPN,². NC-stat® | DPNCheck will be commercially available in the second half of the year. To learn more, click here.
