Eidia, a diagnostics subsidiary of Eisai, is set to introduce Life check for elderly diabetes patients on 27 January 2012.
Life check is a personal self-monitoring blood glucose meter with which diabetes patients can monitor their own blood glucose level by simply inserting the Life check sensor into the meter.
Life check meter incorportaes a color liquid crystal screen that displays step-by-step operational instructions and easy-to-read graphs of measured data.
Eidia said after measurement, the sensor can be easily and safely removed from the meter with the push of a button without the patient having to touch the part to which their blood has been applied.
Life check meter was developed as a next-generation model of the blood glucose monitor G-Check currently manufactured by Gunze and marketed by Eidia.
