Beurer brings colour into play at MEDICA 2013: contemporary diabetes management with the GL50 and GL44 blood glucose monitors
Beurer, specialists for medical prevention, diagnostics and therapy, will be showcasing product innovations for the medical sector at MEDICA in Düsseldorf (Hall 12, Stand D67) from 20 to 23 November. The GL50 and GL44 blood glucose monitors from Beurer provide users with contemporary diabetes management at a glance. The blood volume check and simple measurement marking for optimum diabetes management are just two of the outstanding features of both blood glucose monitors from the company. In addition, the illuminated display and wide test strips enable users to measure blood glucose easily and conveniently. Both measuring systems work with the GlucoMemory software developed by Beurer, which provides an easy-to-understand overview of results and trends. In addition, blood glucose measurements can also be managed with the HealthManager system developed by Beurer. The HealthManager software is available to download free of charge at www.update.beurer.com.
In order to provide optimum measurements, both the GL50 and the GL44 have an integrated blood volume check system, which can achieve a result in just 5 seconds for the required 0.6 µl volume of blood.
To record measurements, users are provided with 480 memory spaces with the date and time. In addition, an average blood glucose value for 7, 14, 30 or 90 days can be calculated. Simple and self-explanatory symbols ensure optimum interpretation of the measurements. The result can be classified at the touch of a button. A whole apple, for example, symbolises measurement before meals and an apple with a bite taken out of it symbolises measurement afterwards. There is also a general marking, e.g. for measurements after sport (asterisk symbol).
Beurer GL50 3-in-1 compact blood glucose monitor
The special feature of the patented GL50 is its compact 3-in-1 function. The device comprises a measuring device, lancing device and plug-in USB with on-board software. It has received the coveted PlusXAward for innovation and ease of use.

Beurer GL44: blood glucose monitor in mini format
The easy-to-use GL44 blood glucose monitor (mg/dL or mmol/L) fits into any bag with its mini format.
