Welcome to Grove Instruments

Grove Instruments, Inc. has developed a completely painless, noninvasive technology that accurately measures blood sugar at the point of care.  Grove’s noninvasive glucometer removes all the barriers to optimal self monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG).  Grove’s patented technology uses light to measure real-time blood sugar in about 20 seconds, without blood, needles or pain.  The Grove Glucometer is portable, battery operated, fits in a shirt pocket, and requires absolutely no ancillary equipment (swabs, stylets, strips), which is essential for current blood-based instruments.  Grove’s glucometer is a both disruptive and transformative technology and can displace all current devices for home and point of care glucose monitoring.

Our mission is to be the first company to achieve optimal home glucose testing by providing the world’s first FDA approved truly noninvasive, painless, bloodless and convenient glucometer.  Grove will improve the outcomes for generations of diabetic people by providing the tools for early detection of the disease and for optimal glucose testing, facilitating glycemic good control and giving each individual a genuine chance to attain the established clinical benefits that accrue from well managed diabetes.

This blog will be used to post job descriptions for Grove’s currently open positions.
