New Roche Accu-Chek Aviva Plus Glucose Test Strips Receive FDA Clearance


Roche announced that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test system. The new maltose-independent test strip is designed to prevent the interference of maltose on blood sugar readings which can occur in rare cases when drugs containing or metabolizing to maltose are parenterally administered. The Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test strip is cleared for patient self-monitoring of blood glucose and can be used with the proven Accu-Chek Aviva system. The new generation of test strips offers advanced chemistry and safety for self-monitoring of blood glucose.

I purchased an Aviva Plus meter last month.
Since them, the readings of tests compared to a Lab test has been more than 30 points. My doctor suggested to accuire a new one to compare results.
I will begim tests this afternoon.
Advice me for possible result comparisons.
