Roche Diabetes Care announces availability of new ACCU-CHEK Nano SmartView System

Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® products and services, is pleased to announce the availability of the new, user-friendly ACCU-CHEK Nano SmartView System. The ACCU-CHEK Nano meter, part of the ACCU-CHEK Nano SmartView System, offers enhanced features including: ease-of-use, fast and accurate readings and small, portable size. Moreover, the meter offers patients the flexibility to test at any time – day or night – with a brilliant backlit display.

“As a rock-climber, I was looking for a meter that fits into my active lifestyle and the ACCU-CHEK Nano meter does just that,” said Steve Richert, rock-climber with type 1 diabetes, founder of the nonprofit organization, LivingVertical and spokesperson for Roche Diabetes Care’s awareness campaign, Steve’s Mountain. “The ACCU-CHEK Nano meter is simple for me to use and gives me accurate readings so I can ensure my insulin levels are under control before I start my climbs. Also, the display screen’s visibility in the dark is a great feature because I’m often testing at night.”

Diabetes affects 25.8 million children and adults in the United States; approximately 1 in 12 people. Regular and accurate monitoring of blood glucose levels through self-testing is essential to managing the disease and can reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, nerve damage or blindness. An accurate blood glucose reading can help to inform a patient’s food choice, insulin use and lifestyle habits.

The ACCU-CHEK Nano SmartView system offers advanced accuracy as tested against a 23% tighter specification – greater than the current standard set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) – so that people can manage their diabetes with confidence. Testing with the meter only requires a small drop of blood (0.6 microliters) and provides a blood glucose reading within 5 seconds.

“We are pleased to offer an innovative, user-friendly blood glucose meter that can be easily integrated into the lives of people with diabetes,” said Marc Gibeley, Head of Roche Diabetes Care North America. “It is a smaller, sleeker option in our broad portfolio of ACCU-CHEK meters. For more than 35 years, Roche Diabetes Care has been committed to the diabetes community, delivering best-in-class solutions that enable optimal diabetes management, and the ACCU-CHEK Nano meter builds upon that promise.”
