Sanofi to introduce iBGStar blood glucose meter in UK

18th January 2012

Sanofi is to release its iBGStar blood glucose meter in the UK this March, allowing users to benefit from compatibility with iOS devices.

An upgraded version of the successful BGStar device, the new meter has already been introduced in a number of European markets and will be the first device of its kind to connect to the iPhone and iPod Touch, reports Chemist and Druggist.

When connected to the Apple devices, stored data will be automatically transferred across for viewing via a free diabetes manager app, which will be made available through iTunes.

This application tracks a variety of diabetes information, allowing users to easily identify trends and variations with or without the assistance of healthcare professionals.

Sanofi's iBGStar will be fully compatible with BGStar blood glucose test strips and lancets, which are currently available via NHS prescription.

This follows on from the introduction of iBGStar in Italy, Switzerland and the Netherlands in the latter half of 2011.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801268341-ADNFCR
