In July 2007 Lein filed three new patents covering innovative ways to align optical instruments to the eye. Developed in-house, and wholly owned by Lein, the technologies behind these patents have underpinned a marked improvement in the resolution of Lein’s measurements.
Graeme Clark said "During the course of testing it became clear that ensuring that the meter was correctly aligned to the eye was fundamental to obtaining consistent results. The strength of these patents is not only that they protect our glucose measurement technology but also that they offer benefits in many other areas, in particular for the optometry market."
In May 2006 Lein was delighted to be awarded a Grant for Research and Development by the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA). This project ran until April 2007 and enabled Lein to develop a new generation prototype. This new meter has many improvements over the previous generation system and gives strong correlations to conventional finger stick meters.
"The support from SEEDA has enabled us to move forwards further than we expected", said Dan Daly. "Our new meter is capable of very impressive glucose measurements and is providing such high accuracy biometrics on the eye that we see many new market opportunities for the technology."
