Founded in Japan in 1960 with the premise of developing quality medical diagnostic products, Arkray continues their commitment to researching and developing high quality and affordable products for diabetes testing. They revolutionized diabetes management devices in 1970 with the release of their Eyetone meter. This meter received international awards for its advancements in technology. In 1978, Arkray released their Dextrometer blood glucose meter with a built-in microcomputer that could store historical test results.
While other brands might be satisfied to rest on their laurels, this innovative force kept forging ahead. In 1991, Arkray released their first blood glucose monitor for at-home testing. The Glucocard allowed patients to test their blood from home and then share their results with their doctors during office visits. The convenience of the at-home glucose testing allowed for patients to decipher their daily testing results and then review with their physician so changes could be made to their treatment plan with the goal that their diabetes was being managed as best as it could be.
Boasting large LCD screens, Arkray blood glucose meters offer a vibrant display that are easy to read. Their meters feature auto-code technology so there are no extra steps required when opening a new vial of test strips for the first time. All of their high performing meters feature prior testing memory so you can go back and review and share prior test results with ease.
The Glucocard meter offers alternate site testing options which can make testing more comfortable, while the Vital meter can provide your testing results in as few as six seconds. The Arkray Expression meter has the ability to audibly provide your testing results, and it can do so in English or Spanish.
In 2008, this innovative manufacturer introduced the Glucocard mini line of glucose meters. This new addition to their at-home glucose monitors was designed to be compact and discreet yet still provide the patient with quality testing results while remaining affordable.
