The combined data from these sites is compared to the central laboratory hexokinase reference methods employed at each hospital. This study was run using whole blood (StatStrip) versus plasma (Reference).There is an OUTSTANDING agreement between StatStrip and the Reference methods, r2 = with a slope of 1.018, throughout: 1,700 data points 35 different hospital sites 14 different reference models 10 different lots of StatStrip test strips.There is very limited scatter throughout the entire linear range of the data ( mg/dL). In fact the graph shows very limited scatter at very high and low levels of glucose. This is important to note because the correlations of the competitive analyzers show significant scatter as low as 150 mg/dLIt is important to consider the tight correlation as it relates to insulin dosing/patient safety issues.Sy*x is a calculation of scatter. The lower the number the better. This calculation quantifies the scatter or standard deviation around a “best fit correlation line”This data is evidence of the exceptional lot-to-lot, hospital-to-hospital, lab-like performance of StatStrip(mg/dL)Plasma Glucose Reference MethodKost, G. et al AACC, July 07;Diabetes Technology, Oct 0716

The white space represents the plasma. The more red cells that are present, the less plasma. Since plasma is where the glucose is located, the glucose reading vary by Hct reading.The center circle represents a normal blood sample. 45% of the reaction area is occupied by RBC and 55% is plasma where the glucose is.. Without the ability to measure the patient’s true hematocrit, competitive meters have to use a “normal” hematocrit value to calibrate their measurement algorithms. The further the patient’s actual Hct value is from the chosen calibration point, the higher the error introduced.The circle to the left represents a low hematocrit. At a 25% Hct, there is 50% more plasma and as a result higher glucose readings. The reported glucose is higher that the actual value because the strip is calibrated to a Hct of 45%. Low Hct is very common in the critical care areas. Patients that have experienced trauma, hema-diluted procedures, post-delivery mothers, oncology patients and many others experience anemia’s.The circle to the right is the opposite. A higher Hct has more RBS and less plasma lowering the reported/measured glucose values. NICU and dehydrated patients are among the populations that will experience significant compromised care if your glucose analyzer does not measure and correct for the Hct interference.Only StatStrip MEASURES and CORRECTS for the glucose measurement error caused by a patient’s abnormal hematocrit.(Calibration Point)

High HCT gives falsely low glucose readings and low Hct gives falsely high glucose readings.Low Hct is the most common of the two conditions and can contribute to falsely high glucose results and overdosing of insulin. Low Hct is therefore potentially more dangerous. As your hospital becomes more aggressive in Glycemic control, the concern is to prevent driving the patient into a hypoglycemic event.If your glucose meter has an interference at a low hematocrit, the meter may read higher glucose values than the patients actual glucose, resulting in a possible insulin over-dose or a delay in identifying a serious hypoglycemic event.StatStrip measures and corrects for hematocrit enabling better glucose accuracy, improved insulin dosing, and reducing the risk of hypoglycemiaLow hematocrit causes erroneously high glucose resultsHigh hematocrit causes erroneously low glucose results

These facts provide documentation from the literature that supports the need to have a glucose meter that can measure and correct for hematocrit for these critical patientsThe Mann paper and Pitcoke paper are excellent proof papers that also support the prevalence of hematocrit (anemia) in ICU patients and how anemia can cause significant glucose meter error.1.

The interference can lead to insulin over-dosing and the serious injury or death.StatStrip has no Maltose, Galactose or Xylose interference.A recent study by Dimeski shows that the newest Roche glucose test strip still exhibits some glucose error in the presence of Maltose and Galactose.

These researchers did a statistical model of the effect of glucose meter inaccuracy on proper insulin dosing. Their study finds that:With a glucose total analytical error of 5%, there is a 8 to 23% chance of a One Step error in insulin dosing. (A one-step error is typically two units of insulin)With a glucose total analytical error of 10%, the insulin dosing error rate increases to 16-45%.As the glucose error rate increases, the dosing error rate increases but more importantly, at an error rate of 15%, the possibility of 2-step dosing errors arises.If your meter is reading too high (due to a sample with low Hct, for example) a two step error in insulin dosing increases the chance of driving patients into hypoglycemia.Relate this information back to the correlation graphs! Remember the scatter on the correlation graphs above 150 mg/dl. Incorrect reporting by glucose meters has serious patient safety concerns.Please note: these findings are the RATE of insulin dosing errors. They are not insulin dosing errors1.

The reimbursement code for StatStrip® isTwo CPT codes for glucose:82947 – Quantitative; glucose, blood $5.62 (StatStrip®)82962 – Glucose; blood by monitoring device $3.27(FDA cleared specifically for home use)Additional reimbursement for CPT Code # $2.35At an outpatient usage of 5%, hospital revenues would increase by the following amounts over a 5 year contractFive Year Approximate Increased TotalStrip Usage Meters in Use Hospital Revenue2 million $235,0004 million $470,0006 million $705,0008 million $940,000(All otherglucose strips)StatStrip is the only glucose test strip developed specifically for professional use in the hospital, and cleared by the FDA for that intended use.All the competitive strips were originally FDA cleared for use as consumer meters. Once the consumer strips were approved, the path for the connectivity or hospital meters using the same strips is significantly easier. Since the strips are already cleared, the competitors only had to show that their connectivity meter produced the same results as the previously cleared consumer meters.This slide shows the additional revenue that would accrue to a hospital using StatStrip vs. any other glucose monitor cleared for home use.

73 No. 260 StatStrip Glucose Rev. 1/19/2012 StatStrip® Multi-Well Technology Creates A New Level of Analytical PerformanceTM“The StatStrip glucose meter correlated best with a plasma hexokinase reference method over a wide range of glucose concentrations and was least significantly impacted by sample hematocrit and other interfering substances. This should allow for better management of critically ill patients on intensive insulin therapy resulting in better glycemic control with improved outcomes and patient safety..”StatStrip is the first meter and strip designed for the current, more demanding requirements of bedside glucose testing. These demands include the need for lab-like analytical performance, freedom from common interferences such as hematocrit and drugs, and elimination of operator technique and operator errors.StatStrip lab-like analytical performance is coupled with the fastest analysis time, the smallest sample size of any hospital meter, plus many other excusive features for bedside glucose testing.This quote from Brad Karon at the Mayo Clinic summarizes the performance and benefits of the StatStrip Hospital Glucose Monitoring SystemKaron, B. et al, Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics, Apr 2008;
