PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Echo Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ECTE), a company developing its needle-free Symphony® tCGM System as a non-invasive, wireless, transdermal continuous glucose monitoring system, today announced it has been chosen to present at the 12th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting which is being held November 8-10, 2012 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, MD.

The presentation, entitled "Transdermal Continuous Glucose Monitoring A Needle-Free Alternative to Invasive Sensors," will be given by Wayne Menzie, Echo's Director of Technology and Clinical Development.  The presentation is scheduled for Friday, November 9 at 10:50 AM EST during the Technologies for Metabolic Monitoring session.

"The selection of Echo Therapeutics as one of the companies to present at the Diabetes Technology Society's conference is a great opportunity for us to apprise the diabetes science and engineering community of the value of needle-free, continuous glucose monitoring in the hospital setting," said Patrick Mooney, M.D., Echo's Chairman and CEO.  "As we move towards commercialization in Europe next year, we look forward to sharing our progress at important medical and scientific meetings like the DTS."

"The numerous key opinion leaders in Europe and the US we have met with are very enthusiastic about the potential for Symphony to continuously monitor glucose levels in the hospital with an appropriate level of accuracy, safety, ease of use, and cost effectiveness," added David Walton, Echo's Vice President of Marketing and Commercial Development.  "Given my prior experience in successfully launching a CGM product in Europe, I am very encouraged by the prospects for Symphony to fulfill unmet needs in the hospital setting."
