[IP] Fwd:New Blood Glucose Monitor from Abbott

This was forwarded to me from a friend whose daughter works at Abbott Labs 
in Chicago. Has anyone heard of it?

>-  In Germany, Abbott launched the Soft-Sense, the first fully automated
>blood glucose monitor to offer lancing, blood collection and painless 
>testing with a single press of a button.  In addition to the convenience of
>fully automated testing, the system offers users an easy and virtually
>painless method of obtaining blood samples.  As an alternative to the
>traditional fingerstick sampling method, it allows samples to be drawn from
>less sensitive areas of the body, such as the forearm or upper arm, and
>employs a new strip technology, which requires less blood.  On Nov. 20, 
>Abbott announced the product, known as Sof-Tact in the United States, had
>received FDA marketing clearance.  Sof-Tact will launch in the United 
>during the first half of 2001, and will continue to be introduced, under 
>Soft-Sense name, in other European countries as well.
