ARKRAY, Inc. Launches PocketChem(TM)EZ Blood Glucose Monitoring System


7/16/2007 8:21:45 AM

MINNEAPOLIS, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ARKRAY USA, Inc. announced today that it has started to sell its PocketChem(TM)EZ Blood Glucose Monitoring System for people with diabetes. ARKRAY USA, Inc. received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market this system earlier in the year.

PocketChem(TM)EZ makes testing easy! This intuitive system gives results in 10 seconds, requires a 1 microliter sample size, and has a 250-count test memory with time and date stamp. The choice of palm or fingertip testing, combined with the ability to reapply blood within 10 seconds if the first drop is too small (double dosing), makes testing more comfortable. It also features a large, easy-to-read display for better viewing of test results.

"PocketChem EZ is a welcome new tool for diabetes self management. The small sample size and choice of palm or fingertip testing makes it easier for patients to test quickly, comfortably, and accurately," said Jonathan Chapman, President for ARKRAY USA, Inc. "This cost effective system is a significant extension of our Self Monitoring Blood Glucose portfolio."
