WaveSense Reduces Diabetes Testing Cost by 50%
Date:6/4/2009

SALEM, N.H., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of the WaveSense(TM) line of blood glucose monitoring products (AgaMatrix, Inc.) announced today their continued commitment to providing low cost, high accuracy, and high quality blood glucose monitoring (BGM) products for people with diabetes. The WaveSense Presto(TM) BGM can be found at leading retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart(R) and Kroger(R). Presto test strips (50 ct) are often as low as $22.88, less than half the typical price of strips from major brands.

The high cost of testing supplies can cause financial hardship for people with diabetes who do not have complete health insurance coverage or who do not have insurance. Often times products that sell at lower prices are not high accuracy or high quality, do not have a proven track record of meter and strip placement in the market, and are not readily available to consumers. WaveSense products feature a new technology that makes testing accurate and affordable and they are used by hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide.

"WaveSense provides the LSU Health Care Services Division outpatient pharmacies the means to provide a high quality, affordable blood glucose monitoring system to our patient population," said Danny Jackson, System Director of Pharmacy for the LSU Health Care Services Division. "The no coding feature and the benefits of WaveSense accuracy deliver a premium, easy-to-use system to the market at a price point that makes testing possible for those patients with limited or no health insurance."

Affordable BGM testing has become increasingly important given today's economic environment. Furthermore, the number of people with diabetes is growing each year, causing both public and private health insurance to spend even more money treating the disease.
