CT-10 Glucose Sensor Systeem
The CT-10 Glucose Sensor System is a user-friendly system that measures glucose levels over 10 days using an easy-to-insert, flexible sensor.
The CT-10 Glucose Sensor System is intended for the adult patient with Diabetes type I or II with an intensive insulin schedule who is self-managing. The system has not yet been studied in children and pregnant women.
There are many advantages to a sensor system. It offers the patient more insight into data and trends. It is important to realize that there is a difference in BG and SG measurement. With glucose monitoring with a sensor, the trends are looked at, where the speed and direction of the glucose values are more useful than individual values.
- Reliable; clinically tested, accurate measurements on both arm and abdomen.
- Clear; more insight with fewer functions. Easy to operate, clear interface on both the app and the receiver.
- Choice; possibility to offer more systems to your patients within the existing reimbursement criteria. Sensor can be worn on both the stomach and the arm. Choice to set alarms or not. Choice of app or receiver.
- Comfort; easy and painless to apply. No nuisance to wear.
Components of the CT-10 Glucose Sensor System
Sensor with integrated skin-friendly 3M plaster (without Isobornyl additive). Gestation period of 10 days. Measures the glucose value every 3 minutes. Can be applied on both the arm and the abdomen.
Transmitter with 100% data storage, so no data is lost. Reusable up to 2 years. When using a new sensor, always insert a new battery (CR1620).
Applicator with preset application angle. This puts less pressure on the tissue and makes the sensor easy and not painful to insert and wear.
Choice of app or receiver for reading data. Trends and reports are easily visible, can be downloaded to the computer or sent to the practitioner.
The sensor measures the glucose in the subcutaneous tissue fluid. The CT-10 measures the value every 3 minutes, after which the transmitter forwards these measurements to the app or the receiver, depending on what the patient is using. By opening the app or pressing the receiver button, the current values, trend arrows and graphs are displayed. The alarms can be turned on and off and set; for example the values at which a warning is given for hypo or hyper.
Because the sensor does not measure in the blood, but in the subcutaneous tissue fluid, the value that the sensor measures often deviates from the value that your blood glucose meter measures. In general, you can say that the sensor is 10 minutes behind.
The CT-10 Glucose Sensor System must be calibrated daily (fasting, before breakfast). Only on days 1 and 2 the system needs to be calibrated twice. The measured value of the fingerstick must be entered in the app or receiver, after which the system calculates the values more accurately. The advice is to always measure as a check if the patient does not trust a value.
Various clinical studies have been conducted on the reliability of the measured values of the CT-10 Glucose Sensor System.
In Germany, research (1) has been conducted in 24 adults with type 1 diabetes (11) and type 2 diabetes (13). Subjects simultaneously wore two CT-10 systems in parallel (one on the abdomen and one on the back of the upper arm) and one comparator on the abdomen.
Measurement performance was measured for each of the sensor systems and analyzed using the mean of dual self-monitor blood glucose (SMBG) readings as a reference.
The overall MARD was 11.9% ± 3.7% (n = 24) for CT-10 worn on the abdomen and 13.3% ± 4.8% (n = 20) for CT-10 worn on the upper arm and . In addition, a comparison was investigated between the CT-10 and a comparator system in the field of documented trend indicators and trend arrows of the tissue glucose change after 15 – 30 minutes.
In another clinical study (2), the CT-10 was used in a total of 80 subjects, 40 of which had it on the upper arm and 40 on the abdomen. From this study, the CT-10 showed a reliability with an overall MARD of = 8.67% (MARD upper arm 8.50%, MARD abdomen 8.83%).
