Automated Glucose Clamp

glucose clamp study

To overcome the burdens of manual methods such as frequent blood draws and inconsistent results, we adopted the Automated Glucose Clamp. Authorities all over the world recommend conducting glucose clamp studies to evaluate diabetes compounds.

We are equipped with 10 Artificial Endocrine Pancrea (STG-22, NIKKISO Co.LTD), and have 3 endocrinologist on site.

Since 1997, as one of the leading clinical research centers in Japan, we have developed glucose clamp methods for clinical trials and have conducted 27 studies using these methods. Our experience includes studies in First In Human, Type 1 and Type 2 DM patients, insulin sensitivity, and hypoglycemic clamp among others.
