In addition, FreeStyle Libre system is factory calibratedmeaning that it does not require a fingerstick test for calibration (a test requiring a blood sample to reset a system's accuracy) unlike other continuous glucose monitoring systems, which require two or more fingersticks per day to remain accurate.
Now, people with diabetes who use the Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM system can make daily treatment decisions without having to perform confirmatory fingersticks.
Although this system still requires calibration with two daily fingersticks, it eliminates the need for any additional fingerstick blood glucose testing in order to make treatment decisions," Alberto Gutierrez, PhD, director of the office of in vitro diagnostics and radiological health in the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said in the FDA statement.
The aim of this study was to assess: (i) the proportion of collection attempts that obtain 150 [micro]L capillary blood using a newly developed fingerstick-based collection device; (ii) the number of puncture sites required to obtain 150 [micro]L blood; and (iii) study nurse adherence to the fingerstick and blood collection protocol.
SurgiLance safety lancets are single-use fingerstick devices, used for the collection of blood from the fingers of adults and children.
Hypothesis Pre-prandial point-of-care fingerstick glucose results obtained more than 30 minutes before the meal will demonstrate a variation in glucose values that is not consistent with insulin dosing regimens.
Indianapolis, IN, USA) is a portable, battery operated analyzer that can assess TC, triglycerides (TG), HDL, and glucose (BG) from fingerstick capillary samples.

Guthrie et al support the use of the postprandial fingerstick as a measure of glycemic control, and note its endorsement in the product inserts for 2 well-known rapid-acting analog insulins.
A 1-hour postprandial fingerstick glucose level of 130 mg/dL was mentioned as the cutoff for initiation of treatment.
The investigation identified unsafe practices, including sharing of reusable fingerstick lancing devices approved for single patient use only and shared use of blood glucose meters without cleaning and disinfection between patients.
Fingerstick capillary blood glucose estimation is fast and convenient and is used by many intensive care units (ICU) for bedside monitoring.
