GlucoRx

The GlucoRx blood glucose meter (model number TD-4230) is a previous generation monitoring system from GlucoRx.

The meter is simple to use but, to ensure you benefit from modern day accuracy, consider the newer GlucoRx Nexus, GlucoRx Nexus Mini or GlucoRx Nexus Voice.

The meter features no coding and can read a 0.7µL blood sample in 7 seconds.

A particularly nifty feature is an action that means that you can eject the strip without having to handle it.

The blood sugar meter is suitable for use with Alternate Site Testing (AST) that is both accurate and for many users means less pain than finger-tip testing.

Large screen and ketones information

The blood test result is shown on a relatively large screen (being almost 3cm x 5cm) and, should the reading be a high blood sugar level, the meter indicates that a test for ketones may be required.

450 reading memory

The meter can store 450 readings in its memory and can show daily averages.

Readings can be downloaded onto a PC using Health Care System, a Windows-based software program that provides a simple way to review and evaluate your blood glucose levels.

Transcript

This little machine is called the GlucoRx. Again, very simple to use and neat. It’s got a little dial there which gives you the time and the date. Usual sort of finger pricker. You dial up the penetration level with the marks on the side. The lancet sits inside like that, you prime it and release it like that. Let me get a strip out and popped i, ready. That turns it on automatically.

With a blood test and off it goes – 5 seconds to countdown. Another thing that some of the meters are doing now are smiley faces. This one is telling me that it’s high at 12.2 mmol/L. You can adjust the settings within here so if you’re range says that 12 isn’t too bad then it needn’t give you an unhappy face. Admittedly, 12 mmol/L is edging out of the zone you want to be in.

The last thing that’s quite entertaining about this model is that, that slide there pops out the sensor so if you don’t want to handle the sensor or have dexterity issues then that’s a nice feature of the GlucoRx.
