About Roche Diabetes Care
Roche Diabetes Care’s products are all designed with the same basic aims in
mind: to help people with diabetes live healthy, productive lives and to make
managing diabetes easier. Glucose Monitoring systems with integrated lancets and
test strips and software for storing and analyzing data are an increasingly
important part of Roche’s Diabetes Care portfolio because they improve glycemic
(blood glucose) control for many users, in addition to offering greater
convenience. Activities aimed at integrating glucose monitoring and data management
with insulin delivery are ongoing and may one day result in systems that closely
mimic the way the healthy pancreas regulates glucose levels.
The Accu-Chek systems for self-testing by patients with diabetes are designed to
make blood glucose testing comfortable, pain-free and convenient. The product
family comprises glucose monitoring systems for patient self-testing (e.g. blood
glucose monitors, test strips and lancing devices) and comprehensive glucose
