New Blood Glucose Monitor Eliminates Manual Coding

April 18, 2007 - The FreeStyle Lite blood glucose monitoring system for people with diabetes has an innovative automatic calibration feature that eliminates the manual coding step usually required by most blood glucose meters before starting a new vial of test strips. The FreeStyle Lite meter allows people with diabetes to test quickly and more easily.

The system provides rapid, accurate blood glucose results in an average of just five seconds and offers virtually pain-free testing due to the very small blood sample size (0.3 microliter) required, a drop about the size of a pin head. The meter is small in size, yet has a large, high contrast display and a backlight for on-the-go testing. It also allows people with diabetes to test on alternate parts of the body such as the forearm, thigh and palm, instead of having to use sensitive finger tips.
The FreeStyle Lite system employs an Abbott technology exclusive to all FreeStyle meters based on coulometric measurement. This electrochemical technology makes it ideal for measuring a small blood sample size.
