Healthcare specialist Pharmaco Australia Limited has launched two new blood glucose meters and now has a range of five, giving people with diabetes more choice for managing their daily health, while fitting it in with their lifestyle.
The two new meters are the CareSens Dual, for both blood glucose and blood ketone measurement, and the CareSens N Premier. Both of these meters are Bluetooth enabled and best suited for high volumes of testing.
The extended range, and their associated test strips, has been introduced in response to the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) announcing Pharmaco as one of the providers awarded a contract under its revised Product Schedule. This is part of the Department of Health’s review of the blood glucose test strip sector.
The meters and test strips from the CareSens range will be available from diabetes healthcare professionals, nurse educators, pharmacies and online, starting 1st December 2018.
Under the contract each of the five meters will be provided to people with diabetes free of charge, with test strips being available through NDSS pharmacies.
