Accu-Chek SugarView app receives CE marking

February 5, 2020 0 By FM

Roche has obtained the CE Mark for its Accu-Chek SugarView app. 

The app determines the blood glucose range using the Accu-Chek Active test strip and two photos taken off the strip with a smartphone camera. An easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide leads the user through the testing process. 

A dedicated algorithm assigns the blood glucose result on the test strip to one of the categories ranging from “low” to “very high”. Based on the testing result, it combines the blood glucose range with basic information on how to take action, such as exercise or eating.

According to the International Diabetes Federation, nearly half a billion (463 million) adults worldwide are currently living with diabetes. By 2045 this number will rise to 700 million. The Accu-Chek SugarView app can help to overcome limitations in an innovative way, the company said.
