Executive Summary

Blood glucose monitor launched Aug. 1 is "virtually pain-free," since it uses only 0.3 microliters of blood taken from the arm and obviates the need for larger fingertip blood samples, the company claims. Cleared via 510(k) in January, the device uses "less [blood] than other blood glucose monitoring systems on the market," according to the Alameda, California firm. The FreeStyle meter uses coulometric technology to minimize the needed sample size and retails for $75; test strips used with the meter are priced at $39 for 50 or $69 for 100
