Say goodbye to finger pricking!

And retire your test strips, too

DiaMonTech has developed a medical device that non-invasively measures your blood glucose without finger pricking, a drop of blood, or a test strip.

Simply relax your fingertip on the sensor, wait 5 to 15 seconds, and your blood glucose level will be displayed.

Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring

Most people living with diabetes determine their blood glucose level with an outdated, decades-old procedure: Prick a finger, put a drop of blood on a test strip, and place the test strip in a glucometer that shows the blood sugar level.

That all changes now. Our patented technology works with an invisible infrared light beam that looks into your skin and counts glucose molecules.

This process is fast, painless, and cost-effective. You will be able to perform an unlimited amount of measurements and learn about your blood glucose level as it changes throughout the day and overnight. DiaMonTech makes managing diabetes much easier with the help of more frequent measurements.

Our device family:

A desktop device for clinical settings and multiple users and a compact pocket device for the end user. The band is a glimpse into the future: A watch-like device you can wear on your wrist that measures your glucose levels continuously. Each device can also communicate with your mobile phone so you can check your information any time and take immediate action.

Designed For A Better Life

Diabetes is a global challenge. More than 530 million people worldwide suffer from the disease. Our goal is to make checking your blood glucose level as easy as unlocking your phone. You will be able to get measurements throughout the day without pain or extra costs. Diabetologists suggest that more frequent blood glucose measurements can lead to better overall diabetes management and less diabetes-related illnesses.
Until there’s a cure for diabetes, DiaMonTech can make living with it much easier.



Shoebox-sized device to be used as a prototype to conduct human trials with our technology.

In clinical tests, DiaMonTech achieved comparable accuracy as invasive devices.


Pocket-sized personal device for the individual end user that can be carried around day and night.

This helps users track blood sugar levels within seconds and more frequently.


Integrated sensor that can be build into wearable devices that continuously measures blood glucose.

This includes data logging and alarm functions to track glucose levels when they are too high or too low.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Our technology is based on well-established physical methods in the field of spectroscopy. We expanded on these methods to be able to detect glucose in the human body. This is a concept we call “photothermal detection”. Professor Werner Mäntele and his team developed the method over the course of 15+ years and DiaMonTech adapted it to create a medical device.

Measurement Process

After you place your finger gently on the sensor, a light beam is directed to it. Glucose in your skin transforms that light to heat. This minimal change in temperature (you won’t notice it) is measured by our detection system. Our device then calculates your blood sugar level based on the temperature change.

German Engineering

It’s important that every detail has the highest level of precision in order to get accurate readings. That is why we only work with the best companies worldwide and manufacture our devices locally. DiaMonTech is truly “made in Germany”.

A peek behind the curtain

This is the heart of our technology. It looks easy and works magically, but we did put a lot of thought into it.

This is our sensor surface – a clear, skin-friendly crystal that guides the infrared light onto your skin. Gently put your finger or thumb on it and keep it still while the screen displays the measurement progress.

This is the heart of our measurement system: A high-tech, state-of-the-art quantum cascade laser (QCL) that emits infrared light in a spectral range that is absorbed by glucose. This type of laser radiation is safe for the eyes and for the skin.

This is the optic lens that guides the infrared laser beam to the sensor crystal and further into the skin.

This tiny red light laser is part of our detection system.

This is a position-sensitive detector that registers the slightest deflection of the red light beam caused by the temperature change induced in the skin.

The whole system is mounted on an “optical bench” that ensures the highest precision during measurements.
