In 2013, LifeScan the manufacturer of OneTouch glucose monitoring systems began replacing its meters because the original meters, acquired in July 2010, needed replacement due to wear and necessary repair.  Three consecutive studies were performed by PharamaTech to determine if meters manufactured in 2013, 2014, and 2015 performed equivalently to meters which were manufactured prior to 2010 .

2013 Meter Validation Study: This study was conducted in September, 2013 to determine if OneTouch meters (Ultra and UltraMini) which were manufactured after July, 2010 are equivalent, in terms of their reported glucose responses, to meters which where manufactured before August, 2010.

Statistical analysis were performed using OneTouch Ultra and OneTouch UltraMini meters as well as GenStrip and Ultra blue test strips over a wide range of glucose concentrations. The results indicated that the meters were equivalent in terms of reported glucose values without regard to the meter’s manufacturing date.  See the details here.

2014 Meter Validation Study: A similar study was performed in May, 2014 to determine whether meters which were manufactured after July, 2010 performed equivalently to meters which were manufactured before August, 2010.

Statistical analysis were performed using OneTouch Ultra and OneTouch UltraMini meters as well as GenStrip test strips over four test fluids (low control solution and 3 whole blood samples). The results indicated that the meters were equivalent in terms of reported glucose values without regard to the meter’s manufacturing date. See the details here.

2015 Meter Validation Study: The last of the three studies was performed in September, 2015 to determine whether meters which were manufactured after July, 2010 performed equivalently to meters which were manufactured before August, 2010.

Statistical analysis were performed using OneTouch Ultra and OneTouch UltraMini meters as well as GenStrip test strips over four test fluids (low control solution and 3 whole blood samples). The results indicated that the meters were equivalent in terms of reported glucose values without regard to the meter’s manufacturing date. See the details here.

Results

GenStrip50 with calibration codes 4, 10 and 13 are for use with OneTouch Ultra, Ultra2 and UltraMini Meters purchased before July 2010. However, these studies show that there is no difference in performance between meters made before or after 2010.

    I just learned of your product and appreciate you doing this test. Please ensure you post one from 2016. My Ultra 2 meter was manufactured in April 2015, but the closest you have tested is from January 2014 (in your 2015 study).

      Hi John,
      Thank you for sharing your feedback. I definitely agree with you. More studies are needed to determine if OneTouch meters available after June, 2014 were performed equivalently to meters which where manufactured before August, 2010.

      We actually did not perform the study. It was done by PharmaTech, the manufacturer of the GenStrip50 Strips, as mentioned in the article. We are simply broadcasting the study to our customers and blog readers, but I am sure PharmaTech will see your comment here and will hopefully conduct further studies.
