Nipro Introduces World's Smallest Blood Glucose Meter
 

Tokyo, Dec 27, 2004 (JCN) - Nipro (TSE: 8086), a leading Japanese medical device manufacturer, launched FreeStyle Flash, a blood glucose meter designed for self-monitoring, on December 22.

Based on the company's existing model FreeStyle, the new product is smaller (measuring 40.6x76.2x20.3mm and weighing about 40g) than the FreeStyle and can complete measuring faster. The unit can measure the glucose level in about 7 seconds. The alarm function notifies the user of time to measure four times a day.

The portable meter is expected to improve the convenience and quality of life of diabetic patients.
