Medical Diagnostic Test Strip

Diagnostic Test Strips with Printed Electronics

Nissha GSI has been a leading manufacturer of printed diabetes test strips for years where we printed over 1.5 billion test strips per year for one of the leading medical device companies in the world. Nissha GSI supported this tremendous demand by building a dedicated printing line that ran 24/7.

Historically, diabetics have monitored their blood glucose by using disposable sensors; following a finger prick, a drop of blood is placed onto a glucose test strip, which is inserted into a reader to provide the result. Alternative options have been developed to enable continuous glucose monitoring. These involve devices that are typically worn on the skin, using a sensor on a small needle to test glucose, however challenges still remain with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) with the ultimate aim of providing the best experience for diabetics. Nissha GSI has very deep experience printing various medical sensors and electrodes and are prepared to work with you for your specific application.
