Bayer Diabetes Care have finally released the updated version of the A1CNow SelfCheck home testing kit. Claiming to now produce more accurate A1C results that mimic lab testing, the unit comes packaged with two single-use cartridges.
From the press release:
A1CNow SELFCHECK, which is now available without a prescription and through leading online pharmacies, provides at-home results within five minutes, has an easy-to-use design and delivers lab accuracy. Measuring A1C levels is important for consistent diabetes management, as even a one-percent reduction in A1C reduces the risk of serious complications by 40 percent(1).
At the healthcare provider’s office patients can be tested with Bayer’s A1CNow+ monitor, which provides results within five minutes, enabling physicians to evaluate their patients’ overall diabetes control and discuss lifestyle and treatment modifications during the appointment, rather than waiting for lab results a few days later. A1CNow SELFCHECK complements the healthcare provider-administered A1C test but is not intended to replace it or routine blood glucose testing. Bayer’s A1CNow SELFCHECK, when used in conjunction with Bayer’s CONTOUR(R) or BREEZE(R)2 blood glucose meters, may help patients achieve tighter control in managing their diabetes, and therefore may reduce longer term complications.
