Why prick when you can scan?*
The days of routine glucose testing with lancets, test strips and blood are over.**
*Scanning the sensor to obtain glucose values does not require lancets. **A finger prick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels, or if hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported but the symptoms do not match the system readings.
