DexCom, Google Team On Diabetes Management

Sa Diego-based continuous glucose monitoring device developer DexCom, and the life sciences team at Google, said this morning that the two have partnered together to jointly develop products for diabetes management. According to the two, they will jointly develop a series of products, which incorporate Google's miniaturized electronics with DexCom's glucose sensors. Financial details of the deal were not announced. The companies said they will initially focus on developing the cost and size of continuous glucose monitoring, body-worn components, enabling people with diabetes to connect their information into the cloud, and replacing finger sticks in managing the disease.
