Roche’s New Nano SmartView Meter Doesn’t Need Coding

| Jan 22, 2012

The FDA has given Roche the go-ahead to market its Accu-Chek® Nano SmartView blood glucose monitoring system. The Nano, which uses Accu-Chek SmartView test strips, will be available to US consumers within the first half of this year. It is part of the same product line as the Accu-Chek Aviva Nano and Accu-Chek Performa Nano systems, which Roche has already launched in several overseas markets.

The meter, which Roche describes as smaller than a credit card, does not require coding or calibration. Other features include a large backlit display, customizable test reminders, pre- and post-meal markers, and average glucose calculations. According to Marc Gibeley, head of Roche Diabetes Care North America, "It is easy to use and will help people with diabetes regularly check their blood glucose levels before making informed therapy and lifestyle adjustments."

I wonder how much more expensive these new strips are. I hate the meter I have now, and I'd love to be able to go back to an AccuCheck meter -- but my insurance company doesn't cover AccuCheck anymore, and I can't buy strips without the insurance covering the majority of the cost.

My only concern is it accurate? I have used other meters only to find their numbers over 30-40 points off so I have stuck with the Accuchek because of its accuracy and its the only meter I will use.

I am s diabetic patient and I have been on a diab. study for the past four years. I had maintained a log of my sugar readings but now that the study was terminated since the past three months I have no record of my test readings.
I own a MAC computer and I want to connect the meter to my computer but there is not one meter which is compatible with MAC computer. I ould like to receive information of any meter that is compatible with MAC computer.

Thank you
