Biochemical Systems International offers Blue Care, a simple, compact, and effective instrument for monitoring blood glucose. Blue Care requires only 5 micro liters of blood to perform the needed analysis, and the result is normally available within 5 seconds. A drop of blood is aspirated onto the reagent strip simply by its coming into contact with the edge of the strip. The measurement range of the monitor is 10 to 600 mg/dl. Blue Care will store up to 500 readings, complete with time and date. The kit comes with the monitor, a lancing device, 10 sterile lancets, a vial of glucose strips and a data chip.
