WaveSense Blood Glucose Meter One of Few Brands to Pass Rigorous TNO Tests
Date:10/9/2007

SALEM, N.H., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wellion Linus Blood Glucose Monitoring System, powered by WaveSense technology for high accuracy testing, recently received certification by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research TNO ("TNO"). TNO is an independent group founded in 1932 that thoroughly tests and inspects medical devices. The Wellion Linus Blood Glucose also carries the CE Marking.

"Receiving the TNO approval is a testament to the quality and accuracy of WaveSense products," said Dr. E. van Ballegooie, one of the leading physicians in the Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg region. "Roche and Abbott are the other major brands to receive the TNO approval; this clearly demonstrates that WaveSense is one of the leading technologies in the world."

In addition to market leading features such as having a fast test time, small sample size, and large backlit display, the Wellion Linus's main feature is its ability to provide high accuracy test results due to its WaveSense technology. For a list of the other blood glucose monitors that have received TNO approval, see: http://www.tnokeur.nl/.

"TNO is known throughout Europe for their high standards and its tests are often more rigorous than the requirements for the mandatory CE Marking. We are honored to place the prestigious TNO seal on our WaveSense products. TNO certification is a tremendous advantage since we are penetrating demanding markets, such as The Netherlands, where users prefer very rigorous accuracy standards for home blood glucose monitoring systems," said Werner Trenker, CEO of MedTrust, distributor of WaveSense products in Europe.

WaveSense technology is a suite of patented technologies that enable high accuracy glucose monitoring products. WaveSense employs Dynamic Electrochemistry to extract a spectrum of information inaccessible to traditional static electrochemistry methods. WaveSense technology aids in the detection of a wide range of variables that can distort a glucose reading, these variables can be corrected through advanced signal processing algorithms in the meter, thus leading to accurate readings.

"Accuracy is the most important feature of any glucose monitoring system. If people are checking their blood sugar regularly, they may as well get a reliable number. Getting wildly fluctuating readings is one of the most discouraging aspects of monitoring. WaveSense products help users by providing consistent, repeatable results that they trust," says John Walsh, PA, CDE, Diabetes Clinical Specialist at Advanced Metabolic Care + Research in Escondido, CA, and author of Pumping Insulin: Everything You Need For Success On A Smart Insulin Pump. "And being one of the few meters that has passed TNO standards really speaks to the performance and quality of the WaveSense Meter."

The Wellion Linus, powered by WaveSense technology, also holds the CE Mark and is commercially available in many countries throughout Europe. The Wellion Linus is marketed as the WaveSense KeyNote and the Liberty Meter in the United States, the iTest in Canada, and the GracePro in China.
