Around 1,100 people are employed at the Inverness facility, which is regarded as a centre of excellence for those working in the field of diabetes.
With a focus on future development, LifeScan is committed to "creating a world without limits for people with diabetes." LifeScan Scotland's main product range includes the popular OneTouch® Brand of blood glucose monitoring systems, which is available globally. The company has also developed diabetes management software, control solutions and lancing devices and, in addition, produces the specialist test strips that work with many of the meters in the OneTouch Brand line.
