Brief Summary

This clinical study has been launched to collect spectral Raman data and reference measurements to establish and validate a calibration model for the device during daily glycemic fluctuations and evaluate analytical performance of device in the hypoglycemic range. The study is a combined home-based and in-clinic study where subjects will attend the clinic two times.

Intervention Type: Device

Intervention Name: P0.3

Description: Subjects will perform daily measurements on the IMD (Prototype 0.3) for 35 days.

Arm Group Label: Protocol 1



Inclusion Criteria:

- Male and female subjects between 18 and 40 years of age.

- Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus.

- Uses an insulin pen or pump.

- Hb1Ac > 55 mmol/mol at baseline visit.

- Skin phototype 1-4 according to Fitzpatrick skin tone scale.

- Willing to perform a minimum of 8 finger sticks per day during the study for the home-based study and approximately 16 finger sticks for the in-clinic study days.

- Willing to have a peripheral venous catheter inserted.

- Willing to provide written signed and dated informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Breastfeeding, pregnant, attempting to conceive or not willing and able to practice birth control according to approved contraceptives from NCA during the study execution (applicable to female subjects only).

- Subjects not able to understand and read Danish.

- Inability to comply with the study procedures as described by the study protocol, according to the opinion of the investigator.

Label: Protocol 1

Type: Experimental

Description: The subjects enrolled in this protocol will dedicate 33 days of home-based measurement and two days for in-clinic measurements. For reference measurements, subjects will be equipped with a BG-meter (Contour Next One, Ascenia). Optical measurements are collected with the IMD. Each day of measurements consists of four sessions each comprising two capillary blood glucose measurement with a BG-meter and two IMD measurements. IMD measurements will be performed using the thenar of the right hand of the subject.
