Arkray launches blood glucose monitoring system
27 July 2007
Arkray USA, Inc. has started to sell its PocketChem EZ
Blood Glucose Monitoring System for people with diabetes in the USA, after
receiving clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market
this system earlier in the year.
PocketChem EZ gives results in 10
seconds, requires a 1 microliter sample size, and has a 250-count test
memory with time and date stamp. The choice of palm or fingertip testing,
combined with the ability to reapply blood within 10 seconds if the first
drop is too small (double dosing), makes testing more comfortable. It also
features a large, easy-to-read display for better viewing of test results.
"PocketChem EZ is a welcome new tool for diabetes self management. The small
sample size and choice of palm or fingertip testing makes it easier for
patients to test quickly, comfortably, and accurately," said Jonathan
Chapman, President for ARKRAY USA, Inc.
