The company said that the Accu-Chek Guide meter is designed to help simplify diabetes management, featuring a spill-resistant test-strip vial, a large blood application area and strip ports for checks at different times during the day.
The Accu-Chek Guide System is designed to automatically track results through its Accu-Chek connect diabetes management application, eliminating the need for self-recording of readings, Roche said in a press release.
“Living with diabetes can be challenging and complicated which is why we are excited to launch the new Accu-Chek Guide System combining simple advancements and state-of-the-art technology to provide a better testing experience. Additionally, as a company that operates and manufactures its test strips in the US, we recognize that in addressing the needs of the millions of people in this country living with diabetes, it is equally important to provide a solution that ensures all patients receive better quality of care without cost being a barrier,” diabetes care NA head Brad Moore said in a prepared statement.
Roche said it also announced the SimplePay savings program alongside the Accu-Check Guide System, which looks to offer consistent prices for diabetic test strips.
In April, Roche warned of potential issues with its Accu-Check Connect diabetes management application which could lead the app to provide inaccurate bolus insulin recommendations.
