The system also provides for those who want
more detailed information like averages and
other special features. All such options are
provided in a separate mode called — the
FEATURES MODE. The buttons on the instrument are only used for the additional features.
Because the options of the FEATURES MODE
take more time to learn than the use of the

Review Time-Specific Averages
TIME-SPECIFIC AVERAGES
The average of all blood glucose results and the time-specific
averages are based on a two-week testing period. A minimum
of three tests must be run within a two-week period to give an
average. For example: if three tests are run within two weeks
for A 1 and A 4 time periods only, then A 2 and A 3 will not
display in your review.

Glucometer® ESPRIT™ System
(Whole Blood Referenced)
1. Accuracy: A patient-use clinical study was
performed at diabetes care centers in three
different locations. Glucose levels were measured
with the Glucometer ESPRIT System on over
300 fresh capillary blood specimens by 61 persons
with diabetes, and six healthcare professionals.
The results were compared with the whole blood
glucose results of the YSI 2300 Stat Plus (Yellow
Springs Instrument Co., Inc., Yellow Springs, OH),
a glucose oxidase/electrode system.
Figure 1 on the following page shows the
comparison of the lay diabetic Glucometer
ESPRIT System results with the whole blood
glucose results. The comparison of the healthcare
professional results with the whole blood glucose
results is shown in Figure 2.

2. Precision: Precision Results for Whole Blood Specimens: EDTA
anticoagulated glycolyzed whole blood pools were supplemented with
glucose to obtain five glucose levels. Multiple replicates of the whole
blood were tested on one day by multiple operators using multiple
Glucometer ESPRIT meters and one lot of sensors. The whole blood
glucose levels of the blood specimens were also tested using the YSI 2300
Stat Plus Glucose Analyzer, a glucose oxidase method. The accuracy of
the YSI was verified using control sera assayed using a modification of the
CDC hexokinase reference procedure (HEW publication no. [CDC] 77-8330).
