WaveSense Diabetes Products Safe from Maltose Inaccuracy Risks
Date:8/27/2009

SALEM, N.H., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- AgaMatrix, Inc., the makers of WaveSense blood glucose meters, announced today their continued commitment to educate health care professionals and patients on the importance of blood glucose meter (BGM) accuracy for all patients. WaveSense BGM's uniquely employ WaveSense technology which personalizes each test to provide world class accuracy. They detect and correct for errors caused by different environmental conditions and blood samples.

According to an industry whitepaper, nearly 90,000 people use drugs or solutions(1), which put them at risk of death if they use some BGM's that use different technology and give inaccurate results because they use the enzyme system GDH PQQ (glucose dehydrogenase pyrroloquinoline quinine). All WaveSense BGM's employ a unique, patented technology, including a different enzyme, thus are not affected by this issue.

Products representing over 30% of the BGM market could be affected(2), spanning 18 different brands. The FDA has developed a complete list of these products: http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/AlertsandNotices/PatientAlerts/ucm177189.htm

Nancy D'Hondt, RPh, CDE, a nationally recognized diabetes expert from St. John Hospital and Medical Center states, "Patients with diabetes should not be put at risk by using meters that could render inaccurate results. Our patients often cannot remember which medications they take, let alone understand meter technology and capabilities. In emergency situations and in the healthcare setting, we rely more and more on accuracy and reliability using point-of-care testing devices, so eliminating the potential for error is a must, especially given that safer alternatives exist."
