The FreeStyle Optium Neo Blood Glucose and Ketone Monitoring System simplifies blood testing while including features that can improve overall diabetes management, such as blood glucose trend indicators and an insulin dosing guide. It uses Abbott’s TrueMeasure technology, designed to minimise errors from insufficient blood samples and interfering substances, allowing easy sample application – you can apply your blood sample from the top (drop it on) or from the side (also known as ‘end fill’). The system takes 5 seconds per test and requires a small sample (0.6 μL minimum), and supports alternate site testing. It starts automatically when the blood is detected and allows the re-application of a blood sample (if the test does not start after the first application of blood, a second sample can be applied to the same test strip within 5 seconds). Each FreeStyle Optium test strip is individually wrapped in easy to open foil, to protect it against air, moisture and other contaminants. There is no requirement for coding or calibration.
