Organization Description
Capillary Biomedical, Inc. is developing novel technologies leading to an Artificial Pancreas system that will dramatically simplify diabetes management and reduce the burden on both patients and the overall healthcare system. Our first product is a continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) catheter that improves the predictability of insulin pump therapy and more than doubles the duration of use. Our ultimate goal is to develop a fully-implantable artificial pancreas system consisting of a long-term continuous glucose monitor (CGM), insulin pump and closed-loop control algorithm capable of automatically managing blood glucose. The seed-stage company is based in Irvine, CA at the UC Irvine Cove incubator and is a spin-out from the Artificial Pancreas Center at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA.
