Abbott’s new FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Monitoring System, with a mealtime (bolus) insulin calculator for calculating suggested insulin doses, has received CE mark.
The new FreeStyle InsuLinx System also includes a touch screen interface, automated logbook, personalization preferences and USB connectivity for plug-and-play reports via the new FreeStyle Auto-Assist data management software.
It is compatible with the FreeStyle Lite blood glucose test strips with ZipWik tabs, which are designed to offer easier blood application, resulting in a better blood glucose testing experience for people living with diabetes.
Abbott Diabetes Care senior vice president Heather Mason said the FreeStyle InsuLinx System has the potential to help change the way insulin users manage their diabetes, because it has been designed to translate glucose results into helpful information that can enable patients to more effectively manage their diabetes.
The FreeStyle InsuLinx System will be available to customers in Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, and the UK beginning in May.
The system is currently not available for sale in the US.
