PRODUCT COMPARISON TABLE

Our first step in any assessment plan is to familiarize ourselves with the technology.  We unpackaged each glucometer, photographed the contents, and assigned each kit its own shoebox-sized container.  During testing, it is easy to get components mixed up, so having them distinctly contained and separated helps ensure the equipment and its parts stay intact.  Below is a product comparison table that was created as a quick reference guide to compare the distinct features of each glucometer, with manufacturer’s websites listed below the table:
