US grocery chain offers Home Diagnostics' glucose meters

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

US grocer Wegmans Food Markets is launching its first glucose monitoring systems for diabetics, TRUEresult and TRUE2go. The monitors will carry the shop's branding and will be supplied by Nipro Diagnostics (previously Home Diagnostics), which originally developed the device. The launch reflects a trend towards greater availability of point-of-care tests outside the conventional settings such as hospitals or doctors' surgeries, and the direct targeting of consumers by IVD companies. This segment is expected to grow as it offers consumers greater convenience. TRUEresult and TRUE2go received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA in 2008 (www.clinica.co.uk, 21 August 2010). TRUEresult will be sold in Wegmans for $19.99 and the smaller TRUE2go device for $8.99. Wegmans operates 77 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and Maryland.
