- Memory stores up to 1,865 tests, so you have the data necessary to give you and your healthcare professional a clear picture of your diabetes management.
Dynamic Electrochemistry® blood sampling is an intelligent technology that enables precision measurements helping to ensure accurate and reliable blood glucose readings. BGStar® meets stringent industry standards for accuracy.
No coding technology, which avoids innaccurate results due to miscoding.
Plasma equivalent calibration for assured accuracy with every reading.
Alarm and target settings.
ADVANTAGES OF THE TECHNOLOGY
Dynamic Electrochemistry® is a technology which extracts a spectrum of information from the blood that is inaccessible to traditional electrochemical methods. This method compensates for many interfering factors, ensuring accurate and reliable blood glucose readings.
BGStar® fully comply with the new ISO 15197:2013 International Standard.
