Flexible Medical Systems LLC is engaged in developing technology to extract interstitial fluid (ISF) for analysis without penetrating the skin. This transdermal approach eliminates the pain, needles, and blood associated with typical blood assays.

Flexmed has developed micro technology for membrane permeabilization to access interstitial fluid (ISF) transdermally (thus eliminating) pain, blood or puncture of the skin. Its proprietary microchip technology temporarily disrupts the continuity of the lipid bilayer with tiny electrical signals, rather like shaking oil and water, allowing fluids to flow through the open channel created across the stratum corneum. Its initial transdermal sensing products are being developed for glucose monitoring of diabetes, where it can quickly help the greatest number of people.
