TuDiabetes Live interview Laura Andrews, co-founder of Azurite Technologies


Azurite Technologies, Inc. is an early stage biotech company located in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. Founded in 2013, its mission is to develop the world’s first noninvasive blood glucose sensor. The company was founded by two Georgetown grads after a summer internship at one of the national laboratories, where they realized a technology one of the co-founders was working with had a huge potential application in completely noninvasive blood glucose sensing. Building on this idea, the team at Azurite completed the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps program, an intensive two-month entrepreneurial training program.

The company’s goal is to leverage their technology to be used as a continuous real-time blood glucose monitor, as a stand-alone device and as part of an artificial pancreas, when fully ready.
