Transport Security Administration (TSA) says its new Glucose Transporter is better than the former model, but it’s not clear which one is safer.
TSB officials said they’ve tested both models, but found no difference in safety.
The TSA said the new model is safe.
TSA said it will make an announcement on how it will replace the old model.
The new GluTrex, the agency said in a statement on Monday, is the safest and most efficient way to transport glucose for patients who have glucose intolerance, including those with type 2 diabetes, the diabetes gene.
The new Glutrex is a fully automated glucose transporter, it said.
The new glucose transporter also includes a glucose monitoring sensor, so that it can detect when a person has an excessive amount of glucose.TSA also said the device can be used for people with impaired vision, heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions.
The device is manufactured by a Taiwanese company and is available for $849, the statement said.
TSA also released an animation of how the device functions.
The agency said it is not aware of any safety issues related to the device.TSB officials told the Associated Press that they are working on a study to determine how much glucose people who have type 2 or more diabetes can safely transport with the new Glugex, according to the AP.
