The European Patent Office intends to grant Brighter a patent for the use of a proximity sensor to log insulin injections in Actiste.

Brighter's patent for the use of a proximity sensor to log insulin injections will be granted by the European Patent Office. The proximity sensor automatically disregards any fluid released from the injector during priming, so this is not registered as an injected dose. The patent is not limited to insulin and applies to use of this function in many injection devices with any pharmaceutical, to disregard priming.

It is recommended to prime the injector in order to remove air bubbles from the needle to ensure full dose administration. The sensor that registers data on the actual injected insulin dose aims to also enable caregivers to provide a more adequate individualized treatment.

"I am very pleased that this patent will be granted. For patient safety reasons, it is incredibly important that injection devices work correctly and reliably. This patent is indicative of the value of Brighter’s innovative IP, and its potential applicability to other markets,” says Christer Trägårdh, interim CEO of Brighter AB.
