Abbott Libre 3 Receives CE Mark
Here is a brief preview of this blast: Abbott announced it has received CE Mark for the Libre 3 CGM system. Unlike the Libre 1 and 2 CGM systems which require users to scan the sensor to receive their glucose readings, Libre 3 is a true real-time CGM. Additionally, Abbott has updated the Libre form factor with Libre 3 being approximately the size of two stacked US pennies. According to the press release, Abbott is planning for an EU launch “in the coming months” with no update on a potential US timeline. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the new Libre 3 CGM features as well as potential implications to Dexcom, Medtronic, Senseonics, and other CGM manufacturers.
