CVS Pharmacy, Inc. Key Developments

CVS/pharmacy Introduces New Glucose Monitoring Device

CVS/pharmacy has introduced the new CVS/pharmacy Brand Advanced Glucose Meter, an FDA-approved meter that provides easy at-home glucose monitoring with reliable results. The high-tech meter and test strips are first in a new series of glucose meter solutions that will offer customers more options and save them money. A 100 count box of the CVS/pharmacy Advanced Glucose Test Strips can cost as little as just 23 cents per test strip, which is considerably less expensive than many of the equivalent test strip options available in-store from alternative brands. Key features of the new CVS/pharmacy Brand Advanced Glucose Meter include proven clinical accuracy, no coding, large memory storage capacity, and a large backlit display with a simplified user experience that displays results in seconds. Another benefit of the new meter is that it requires only a very small 0.5 microliter blood sample size.
