Diabetes requires special attention. Patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes often need regular measurement of blood glucose level. The analysis can be conducted in the laboratory and even at home, thanks to the modern technologies developing year after year. To do this, you need a small device called blood glucose meter, or a glucometer.
There are hundreds of different models of glucometers with their own benefits and disadvantages. Austrian company NEW MED is focused on market demands and customer needs. Thus, it has developed an optimal price-quality starter kit for measuring sugar level in human capillary blood. It’s NEO meter.
NEO blood glucose meter is a compact device with a large LCD-screen: symbols are legible even for old people. The device needs a 3.0 V battery for operation. The charge of the battery is sufficient for 1000 glycemia checks.
NEO blood glucose meter combines the speed of the analysis (only 5 seconds from the moment the blood is applied on the test strip), is compact and easy to operate. The minimum blood dose - only 0.6 μl - is sufficient for the device to display the result on the screen. For convenience of the user, the device provides 500 memory cells for last measurement data storage. You can also find the average value of blood sugar level for the last 7, 14, 30, 60 or 90 days.
A voice reminder (up to 10 times a day) is provided in the NEO glucometer – so patients will not forget to conduct regular measurements. In addition, a warning alert will sound, if the blood glucose level is too low or exceeds the norm, as well as if ketones are found in the biomaterial sample. The measurement range is from 1.1 to 33.3 mmol/l.
NEO blood glucose meter by NEW MED operates based on glucose oxidase enzyme method of analysis. Calibration of results is carried out by the equivalent of blood plasma. Capillary blood can be taken from the finger or, alternatively, from the forearm and palm.
NEO blood glucose meter, like all NEW MED products, complies with requirement of ISO 15197: 2015. Manufacturer grants a long-term warranty for the device - 5 years. Blood glucose meter will serve you as long as possible, provided observance of conditions of storage and operation of the device (temperature mode of 5 to 45 °C and relative humidity of 20 to 90%).
