[IP] Re: Meter Accuracy

I echo the sentiments of wanting accuracy over the size of the drop, timing
of the test, etc. for blood glucose meters.

Next time you are going to a diabetes meeting where the Monitor sales
representatives will be hawking their wares, bring several of your meters
and ask them to run 3-4 tests with the same finger at the same time. Get
ready to see the sales representative to turn red and start making excuses.
Accuracy should be stressed by the blood glucose monitoring companies but
unfortunately they are concerned with the size of the drop, profits, timing
of the test, color of the meters, etc..

Have you ever seen a test comparison of accuracy of the newer
electronic-based meters verses the older light-reflectance based meters?
