Real-time2 dual-band wireless
Immediate patient test results when and where you need them to keep your patient records up to date.
✓ Rapid access to test results anywhere2 in the hospital
✓ Streamlined workflow – no docking required
✓ Dual-band wireless for more connectivity options3
✓ Automatic upload of patient results to electronic medical records4
✓ Real-time data sharing2
Helps improve safety, efficiency and creates better patient ID tracking.
✓ Reads 1D and 2D barcodes enabling transition to new technology
✓ Camera based reader eliminates risk of laser eye contact
✓ 2D barcodes are easily scanned on curved patient wristbands5
✓ Store more information in less space with 2D barcodes6
Helps enhance bedside accuracy for better patient care.
✓ Meets current ISO15197 standards
✓ Haematocrit compensation from 15% to 65% enhances accuracy
✓ In clinical studies, >99% of results with FreeStyle Precision Pro glucose test strips were within ±0.83 mmol/L or ±15% of laboratory reference
|within ±0.28 mmol/L|
or ±5% of lab reference
|within ±0.56 mmol/L or ±10% of lab reference||within ±0.83 mmol/L|
or ±15% of lab reference
<4.2 mmol/L (capillary)
|59,3% (32/54)||96,3% (52/54)||100% (54/54)|
≥4.2 mmol/L (capillary)
|70,1% (303/432)||94,9% (410/432)||99,1% (428/432)|
Minimises the risk of exposure to pathogens for increased safety.
✓ 5-second blood glucose test time for fast bedside results
✓ Protected from the air, humidity and other contaminants to ensure accurate results7,8
✓ Designed with convenient automatic calibration and expiry date check to guarantee reliable results via the individual barcode
✓ Quick and easy to open due to notched foil wrapper
✓ Individually barcoded to enable ‘Automatic Lockout’, which prevents inaccuracies that can occur due to the use of expired test strips
✓ In hospital studies, 25.7%–57.0% of vial packaged blood glucose test strips were contaminated with bacteria, posing risk of bacterial transmission between patients9,10
