LifeScan, Inc. Introduces New OneTouch Verio Blood Glucose Monitoring System

LifeScan, Inc. has introduced the new OneTouch Verio Blood Glucose Monitoring System that helps people with diabetes better understand their results without any extra effort. Easy to use, the OneTouch Verio System features a color-coded range indicator that shows whether a test result is within, below or above the range limits set in the meter without the need to scroll or push buttons. It also looks for signs of progress and provides positive reinforcement with Progress Notes, which inform patients about the progress they are making in managing their diabetes and how often their blood glucose results are in range. After using the OneTouch Verio Meter for a week, 94% of people with diabetes said it made their test results simple to understand. The low and high range limits set in the OneTouch Verio Meter can be customized for each patient based on their healthcare professional's recommendations. With each test, the color-coded range indicator feature shows whether a result is below limit (blue), within range (green) or above the limit (red). When the meter displays a low result, it prompts the user to treat the low glucose result and retest in 15 minutes. OneTouch Verio Meter Key Features: Simple testing, color-coded range indicator, progress notes, automatic 7-day averages, high-resolution color display with large on-screen results, and accurate results.

UniStrip Technologies, LLC Sues LifeScan, Inc. for Antitrust Violations

UniStrip Technologies, LLC has filed an antitrust lawsuit in the Los Angeles federal court against LifeScan, Inc. for violations of the Sherman and Clayton Acts. UniStrip alleges in its complaint, LifeScan has taken anti-competitive measures by withholding rebates, cooperative marketing funds, and other incentives from wholesalers and retailers who offer UniStrip1 for sale. LifeScan's attempts to preclude UniStrip's entry into the market were coordinated within the company, executed by sales representatives, and added to contracts that expressly conditioned the payment of rebates for LifeScan products on the distributor's refusal to purchase and sell UniStrip products.
