Abbott has announced FDA clearance of its FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Monitoring System, which will be made available in the US later this year. The system, which was CE marked last year, incorporates an easier to use touchscreen interface which can be personalized with messages and a home screen photograph.
Additionally, Abbott claims the system’s USB connectivity via the accompanying FreeStyle Auto-Assist software will help diabetics better manage their blood sugar by providing reports and reminders.
