About:

From their last SEC filing:

 

Quote:
IQ Micro Inc. is an international licensing company that commercializes proprietary technology developed for use in the microfluidics sector. Developed from the micro-chip industry, microfluidics involves circuits of tiny chambers, channels and pumps that direct the flow of liquids on a single micro-chip. 

 

IQ Micro is actively pursuing global licensing opportunities for its patented electro-osmotic membrane technology and its "invisible pump," a microfluidic technology with a wide range of consumer, medical and industrial applications. With its proprietary technology and highly experienced management, IQ Micro expects to become a leading global, specialized supplier of low-voltage microfluidic technology.

What have they been up to lately?
 
A few months ago, at the beginning of November 2009 there was the Diabetes Technology Society Meeting in Brussels, Belgium. At the meeting Lifecare AS presented Sencell, a new glucose monitoring device they have been working on. Press on Lifecare after the conference:

Latest Sencell Developments:
Quote:
The prototypes of the SENCELL are in October 2009 going through laboratory in vitro testing to verify performance data.
 
What is Sencell?
 
 
Here's how it works. First a small chip is inserted into the skin using a syringe. It is a few millimeters big and serves as a glucose sensor. The way it is able to gauge glucose levels is osmotic pressure using Osmotex's microfluidics technology. Based on this technology and the initial buzz it has been receiving you can see how this basic premise could be expanded out beyond just glucose devices.
 
Here is an excerpt from some press:
Quote:
Injectable Continuous Ostomotic Glucose Sensor – LifeCare AS out of Bergen, Norway, is working on a CGM that’s so tiny it can be implanted without surgery. The product is called SENCELL, and will be injected under the skin on your wrist. The technology is based on osmotic pressure, but please don’t ask me to explain the science behind it; something about a “reversible competitive affinity assay” that recognizes changes in glucose levels, and then wirelessly transmits them to an external receiver. All I know now is that the company claims it’s the “new frontier in CGM!” SENCELL is currently undergoing laboratory in vitro testing to determine reactions from the immune system. Hmmm.

 
 

 
 
 
OSMOLIFE
 
 
 
 
According to the following PR, Lifecare and Osmotex were put under the umbrella of a parent company Osmolife.
 
Quote:
IQ Micro Inc. (OTCBB: IQMC), exclusive licensor of patented electro-osmotic membranes and micro-pumps for the rapidly emerging microfluidic technology sector, announced today that its parent company, Osmotex AS, has merged with Lifecare AS, a private Norwegian company developing advanced micro and nanotechnology for the diabetes monitoring market. The expanded parent company, renamed Osmolife AS, will continue to function as a holding company for two research and development subsidiaries and for IQ Micro, its exclusive, worldwide sales and marketing company.
IQMC may have acquired Lifecare AS's outstanding shares:
IQ Micro Inc., exclusive licensor of patented electro-osmotic membranes and micro-pumps for the microfluidic technology sector, has entered an agreement in principle with its parent company, Osmolife AS, to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Lifecare AS. A private Norwegian company, Lifecare is developing advanced micro and nanotechnology for the diabetes monitoring market. The proposed transaction is scheduled to close on July 15, 2007.
 
IQ Micro President and CEO, Johnny Christiansen, said, "With this acquisition, IQ Micro will strengthen its position in the $11 billion worldwide diabetes market by gaining immediate access to the parent company's proprietary technologies. As we continue to commercialize our licensed microfluidics technologies, Lifecare's patented technology will create another important building block in the future of diabetes treatment for the company."
 
Lifecare has been developing an implantable osmotic sensor for automated, continuous glucose monitoring. The company's proprietary sensor, SENCELL, promises precision and accuracy beyond existing solutions. SENCELL integrates micro and nanofabrication technologies into a tiny device that provides a platform for development of a long-term, in vivo glucose sensor solution to replace conventional, less efficient glucose monitoring and measurement techniques.
