Roche Diagnostics launches wireless hospital blood glucose meter

Roche Diagnostics has launched its Accu-Chek Inform II wireless hospital glucose meter in Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Asia and Latin America. The Basel, Switzerland company claims it is the first meter to wirelessly send data directly to the hospital access point. This is because it is the only one to have only two components: the meter itself and the receiving access point for the hospital IT. Glucose levels are tested using the conventional method, pricking the patient's finger to obtain a small drop of blood. Accu-Chek Inform II is the successor to Accu-Chek Inform, which Roche says is the best-selling "connected" hospital blood glucose meter.
