ARKRAY's GLUCOCARD® Vital and 01 Blood Glucose Meters are now on the Department of Defense Uniform Formulary.
Date:10/28/2011

EDINA, Minn., Oct. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ARKRAY USA, Inc. (ARKRAY) announced today that the GLUCOCARD® Vital and 01 are now listed on the Department of Defense (DoD) Uniform Formulary.  The DoD Pharmacy and Therapeutic committee (P&T) selected both the GLUCOCARD® Vital and the GLUCOCARD® 01 Blood Glucose Meters as the first and second most cost effective blood glucose meters in all points of service as noted by the Uniform Formulary Beneficiary Advisory Panel (BAP) earlier this year.

Both GLUCOCARD Vital and GLUCOCARD 01 meter systems feature advanced auto coding technology and require only a tiny sample size at a cost that is less than other blood glucose meter systems on the Uniform Formulary including the current blood glucose meter offered on the Basic Core Formulary.  

"We're excited that ARKRAY has two meters on the Department of Defense Uniform Formulary," said Jonathan Chapman, President of ARKRAY. "Our GLUCOCARD meter systems offer high performance standards.  To be recognized by the DoD for having the most cost-effective blood glucose meters is an honor."

GLUCOCARD meters work with ARK Care™, a Real-Time Diabetes Data Management System.  This unique, patient focused, online software for diabetes management allows patients, healthcare providers and care givers to capture data, see results, and manage ones diabetes. Every GLUCOCARD meter is backed by our GLUCOCARD YouChoose® Wellness and Support Program. Exclusively for GLUCOCARD patients, the program provides free education and support materials, recipes, meal planners, ongoing support, and more.  

ARKRAY will be demonstrating their GLUCOCARD Blood Glucose Meters at the Joint Forces Pharmacy Seminar (JFPS) in Dallas, TX next week.  "Exhibiting at the largest annual event for the military pharmacy community is the perfect opportunity to show pharmacists and technicians first hand how our products perform for their patients with diabetes," said Robert Wernsman, Vice President of Consumer Healthcare Division.
