Roche launches ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert system

Roche has launched ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert system, a blood glucose meter system with a built-in insulin calculator.

Glucose

The company said that the blood glucose meter system is the first to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, and is available by prescription.

The system includes ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert meter, ACCU-CHEK Aviva Plus test strips, ACCU-CHEK Aviva control solutions, and ACCU-CHEK Bolus Advisor feature.

It has been developed for the quantitative measurement of glucose in fresh capillary whole blood samples drawn from the fingertip, and is intended for self-testing outside the body (in vitro diagnostic use) by people with diabetes.

In addition, the system will also be used to calculate an insulin dose or carbohydrate intake based on user-entered data.

Roche Diabetes Care North America head Marc Gibeley said the new system will allow users to accurately calculate their insulin dose.

"The ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert system is the first and only system of its kind that provides meal and correction insulin bolus recommendations, which can help patients on insulin therapy have the confidence they need to better manage their diabetes," Gibeley added.
