Nova Biomedical has introduced a low cost hospital blood glucose meter that delivers all of the analytical performance of their Multi-Well™ test strip for testing situations where glucose meter interface capability is not needed. The new StatStrip™ Xpress provides hospitals a choice of glucose monitors with or without a connectivity solution using the same Multi-Well test strip. Like the StatStrip™ Glucose Hospital Meter, StatStrip Xpress brings the analytical performance of bedside glucose testing to the quality level of central laboratory testing. It incorporates a new strip technology that uses four measuring wells. Nova’s Multi-Well system measures and corrects hematocrit interference, as well as interferences from acetaminophen, uric acid, and ascorbic acid. StatStrip Xpress also eliminates oxygen, maltose, galactose and xylose interferences.
