Aim: To evaluate OneTouch® Verio™ test strip performance at hypoglycaemic blood glucose (BG) levels (<3.9mmol/L [<70mg/dL]) at seven clinical studies. Methods: Trained clinical staff performed duplicate capillary BG monitoring system tests on 700 individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes using blood from a single fingerstick lancing. BG reference values were obtained using a YSI 2300 STAT™ Glucose Analyzer. The number and percentage of BG values within ±0.83. mmol/L (±15. mg/dL) and ±0.56. mmol/L (±10. mg/dL) were calculated at BG concentrations of <3.9. mmol/L (<70. mg/dL), <3.3. mmol/L (<60. mg/dL), and <2.8. mmol/L (<50. mg/dL). Results: At BG concentrations <3.9. mmol/L (<70. mg/dL), 674/674 (100%) of meter results were within ±0.83. mmol/L (±15. mg/dL) and 666/674 (98.8%) were within ±0.56. mmol/L (±10. mg/dL) of reference values. At BG concentrations <3.3. mmol/L (<60. mg/dL), and <2.8. mmol/L (<50. mg/dL), 358/358 (100%) and 270/270 (100%) were within ±0.56. mmol/L (±10. mg/dL) of reference values, respectively. Conclusion: In this analysis of data from seven independent studies, OneTouch Verio test strips provide highly accurate results at hypoglycaemic BG levels.
