Miles' Biostator Glucose Controlled Insulin Infusion System has been developed as a research tool to investigate the physiology of the endocrine pancreatic function; because of its capabilities and operating convenience Biostator has already found a variety of applications in the management of diabetics in acute emergency situations. Experience gained with the current system will lead to the development of improved methods of connecting the glucose sensor to the vascular system, improved membranes, stable sensors, and optimized control circuitries - the prerequisites for the ultimate goal, a miniaturized selfcarried Artifical ß Cell.
