Dexcom, Inc. develops, manufactures and distributes continuous glucose monitoring systems for diabetes management. It operates internationally with headquarters in California, United States. DexCom’s roots stem from 1967 research on implanted glucose sensors at the University of Wisconsin, and started with a focus on creating an implantable sensor that the body would not reject and that would perform for a long period of time. DexCom was identified by Fast Company as the 5(th) Most Innovative Company within the Healthcare Industry in Feb. 2013. 

Dexcom’s history includes multiple generations of sensor technology coupled with partner development agreements. In 2006, Dexcom received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and launched the Dexcom STS Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. This was a three day sensor that provided up to 288 glucose measurements every 24 hours. Dexcom received approval of the second generation product, the Seven Continuous Glucose Monitoring System in May, 2007. This device improved on accuracy as well as extending usage from three to seven days of continuous wear. In 2008, Dexcom announced two consumer development agreements with Insulet Corporation and Animas Corporation as well as a development agreement with Edwards Lifesciences for a continuous glucose monitor in the intensive care unit hospital environment. During February 2009, Dexcom received approval for the SEVEN PLUS Continuous Glucose Monitor, the third generation Dexcom continuous glucose monitoring system from the FDA. This product received a CE mark in November 2009.
