The Glucocard (Kyoto Daiichi Kagaku) blood glucose meter is designed for self-monitoring of blood glucose concentrations in capillary blood through use of an electrochemical test strip. Evaluated in this laboratory, the Glucocard had CVs of 4.6%, 6.6%, and 3.5% at blood glucose concentrations of 2.4, 4.1, and 18.9 mmol/L, respectively. The meter's response varied linearly with blood glucose concentration between 2.2 and 27.8 mmol/L. Hemolysis, urate, ascorbate, and acetaminophen interfered by…

Clinical Evaluation of the Accu-Chek Advantage Blood Glucose Monitoring System

Accu-Chek Advantage blood glucose–monitoring system has a reliable degree of precision and accuracy and can be used effectively for the self-monitoring of blood glucose.

Performance of Precision G blood glucose analyzer with a new test strip G2b on neonatal samples.

The performance of the Precision G System with the G2b test strips is compared with a laboratory method using venous specimens with a wide range of hematocrits taken from patients in a neonatal intensive care unit.

Electrochemical assay system with single-use electrode strip for measuring lactate in whole blood.

Lactate concentrations determined by this method in blood samples from healthy individuals before and after exercise agreed with the results obtained by the conventional enzymatic method.

The Accutrend Sensor type of analyzers are therefore not suitable for regular monitoring of glycemia in diabetic PD patients treated with icodextrin and their respective role of the Analyzer and of the glucose polymer is investigated.

Effects of drugs on glucose measurements with handheld glucose meters and a portable glucose analyzer.

Clinicians are advised to choose glucose devices carefully and interpret results cautiously when glucose measurements are performed during or after drug interventions, because package inserts for the glucose devices may not provide adequate warning information.

Toxic levels of acetaminophen produce a major positive interference on Glucometer Elite and Accu-chek Advantage glucose meters.

Bedside capillary glucose monitoring has become widespread in most hospitals. Glucose meters have been shown to provide a reasonably acceptable degree of accuracy compared with laboratory instruments

Methods for the determination of glucose in blood. Part 2

The chronological development of destructive and nondestructive methods designed to determine the glucose concentration in plasma, serum, and whole blood is presented in the review. Destructive

An Artificial Intelligence Based Glucometer for Diabetic Patients using Urinal Analysis

An artificial intelligence based image processing application has been developed, which non-invasively measures the glucose concentration present in the urine sample of a person and hence the equivalent blood glucose level of that person is inferred.

Methylene-green-mediated carbon paste glucose biosensor

An amperometric glucose bioelectrode based on the incorporation of methylene green (MG) within a glucose oxidase (GOD)-containing carbon paste is described. The electrode generates an anodic current



Direct reading glucose electrodes detect the molality of glucose in plasma and whole blood.

Comparison of Five Glucose Meters for Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose by Diabetic Patients

Each glucose meter exhibited inherent advantages and disadvantages regarding price, calibration, strip utilization, and ease of operation, which must be considered before recommendation by the health care provider.

Laboratory assessment of three new monitors of blood glucose: Accu-Chek II, Glucometer II, and Glucoscan 2000.

Three new monitors of blood glucose concentrations are described: the Boehringer "Accu-Chek II", the Ames "Glucometer II", and the Lifescan "Glucoscan 2000" (L).

The effect of the haematocrit value on the determination of glucose levels by reagent‐strip methods

The results showed good agreement between Ames and BM methods and the YSI method for normal haematocrit concentrations of 40% to 50%.

Are Blood Glucose Reagent Strips Reliable in Renal Failure?

In diabetic patients with end‐stage renal failure, all of whom had low haematocrits, three brands of strips were evaluated and their results were compared with laboratory whole blood glucose concentrations determined on the same samples.


Effect of Hematocrit Concentration on Blood Glucose Value Determined on Glucometer II

Nineteen patient blood samples each with modified hematocrit concentrations of ∼20, 30, 40, 50, and 60%, were assayed for their glucose concentration by the Glucometer II and the reference method was the YSI blood glucose analyzer.

Consensus Statement on Self-Monitor ing of Blood Glucose

An examination and evaluation of medical and technical issues, training procedures, and general impact of SMBG was indicated, and a Consensus Development Conference on SelfMonitoring of Blood Glucose was convened on 17-19 November 1986.
