1 Introduction
Diatransfer 2 is diabetes data management software for the blood glucose monitoring systems of 77
Elektronika. This software helps doctors obtain up-to-date information on the health status of their
patients, and makes it possible for them to interact in time during critical circumstances. The results
of the patient’s measurements may be transferred from the patient’s location to the doctors via the
Internet. Data can be uploaded to the Diatransfer 2 program, which operates on the patients’ own
PC, as well with a special infrared (IR) coupler, Lite Link, which is manufactured for the blood glucose
meters of 77 Elektronika. Diatransfer 2 displays the measurement results as diagrams, calculates
various statistics, and helps patients contact their healthcare professionals more easily via the
Internet.
2 Overview of operating elements of Diatransfer 2
The entire blood glucose monitoring system consists of three parts:
•
77 Elektronika glucometer with built-in IR port.
•
Lite Link mini USB—a wireless data download device.
•
Diatransfer 2—diabetes data management software.
77 Elektronika blood glucose meters are designed to provide easy, accurate, and rapid testing of
blood glucose levels. The test results stored in their memory can be downloaded through the IR
interface of the meters. The following products are compatible with Lite Link and Diatransfer 2:
SensoCard and SensoCard Plus; SensoLite Nova and SensoLite Nova Plus; and AutoSense and
AutoSense Voice.
The Lite Link is an optical interface that transfers test results from the blood glucose meter. It is a
wireless data download device that must be plugged into a USB port of a PC.
The Diatransfer 2 is diabetes data management software that is supplied together with the Lite Link
device. After test results are downloaded from the glucometer, they can be reviewed and evaluated
by the program using different statistics, diagrams, and charts. Diatransfer was developed for
diabetic patients as well as for doctors using the blood glucose meters of 77 Elektronika.

3 Installation
3.1. Minimum requirements and recommended conditions for Diatransfer 2
Software:
The minimum requirements of Diatransfer 2 are the same as those for the Microsoft Windows XP
Professional Operating System.
•
•
•
•
•
A 233 MHz or faster processor; 300 MHz is recommended
64 MB RAM; 128 MB is recommended
1.5 GB available hard disk space
Keyboard, Microsoft mouse, or a compatible pointing device
Super VGA (1024 x 720) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor
The recommended conditions for the operation of Diatransfer 2 are similar to those for the Microsoft
Windows 7 Operation System.
• A 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

• 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
• DirectX 9 graphics device with a WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
PDF document reader software is highly recommended, because this software exports the statistical
results of measurements in PDF format. While internet access is required in order to communicate
with the doctor (for both consultation and supervision), Diatransfer can also be used without this
function.
3.2 Installation of Diatransfer 2 Software
The program can be easily installed using the Diatransfer 2 Setup Wizard. The installation will start
automatically when the CD is inserted. If the installation does not start automatically, double click

4 Using Diatransfer 2 software
4.1 Create user profiles, Log in
There are two types of user accounts: a patient account and a doctor account. There is no significant
difference between these accounts, except that in patient mode, only one user profile can be
accessed, while in doctor mode, a patient list can be created and multiple user profiles can be
managed.
At the first launch of the program, these two types of users will appear on the home screen.
To use the program further, a user profile must be created.

4.2.2. Measurement
Use the measurement tab to set the normal ranges of your blood glucose level. The minimum and
maximum values can be entered by moving the sliders.
The normal range is different for each person, and depends on his/her mealtimes. On average, the
normal fasting blood glucose range for a non-diabetic adult is 70-110 mg/dL (3.9-6.1 mmol/l). Onehour after a meal, a normal blood glucose result should be less than 160 mg/dl (8.9 mmol/l).
Please consult your doctor about this.
The Hypoglycemia and the Hyperglycemia ranges can be specified using the same method.
The unit of measurement is optional. It can be specified as mg/dL or as mmol/L. Measurement
results are transferred automatically to the selected unit of measurement. 1 mmol/l is equivalent to
approximately 18 mg/dl. Both units of measurement are widely used.
20
Lite Link mini USB & Diatransfer 2
User manual
4.2.3. Timing
Five mealtimes are normally prescribed for patients with diabetes. These five mealtimes can be
specified in the Timing panel. The program assigns the measurement results’ timing to the specified
mealtime intervals. (This is important, because the measured values for one and a half hours before
a mealtime are calculated differently in the statistics.) This helps to create a more accurate statistical
record of the patient’s condition.
Note:
The program calculates the results before and after meals differently. Please be precise about
setting the mealtimes.
The beginning and end of these five mealtimes can be set by moving the sliders.
Note:
The mealtimes are ordered one after the other and cannot be combined. Mealtime durations are
at least 5 minutes, and at least 5 minutes must have elapsed between two meals.

There are seven types of marks to specify the data characteristics:
“MARKER”
If the measurement does not seem right, or may not be correct; for example, control
measurements
“PLAZMA”
Measurement from plasma
“HYPO”
Measurement in the hypo section
“IGNORED”
Unwanted results; the statistics will not include these.
“PREMEAL”
Before-meal mark
“POSTMEAL”
After-meal mark
“SPORT”
Measurement after sports activity
Brief comments, such as notes on measurement modifications or symptoms that accompany a given
measurement can be tagged to each measurement. This is done in the “DESCRIPTION” window.
There is an option in which once can export all data. This is one of the most important features of the
program, as the exported database can be sent to your doctor, who imports and reviews it, and can
also leave comments or therapy tips. (The “THERAPY” and “NOTES” interfaces in the SETTINGS
section are especially designed for this.)
Choose “EXPORT” and save the .d2e file, then send it in an e-mail. The import database is quite
similar; just click “IMPORT” and choose the right file (.d2e format).

4.5 Statistics
Diatransfer 2 consists of four parts:
•
Blood glucose diary
•
Timeline
•
Daily averages
•
Statistics
These sections can be found side-by-side in a horizontal display at the top of the window. Use the
two sliders above this menu bar for setting the time and the period. With the top slider, you can set
the last day of the review period. With the bottom one, you can adjust the length of the period,
which can vary from 7 to 180 days.
The second table lists the measuring device(s). Here, when you choose a device, the Blood
glucose diary, Timeline, and Statistics underneath show the corresponding values. To display all
the measurement values (from all devices), please do not select any of them. Hold the CTRL
button and click on the marked measurement in order to unmark it.
Note!
It is recommended that one device be used by only one person. If a measuring device is used
by more than one person, the program will not be able to separate the data, which can lead to
incorrect diagnosis.
Note!
The Statistics menu is hidden until the measurements are uploaded.

Lite Link mini USB & Diatransfer 2
User manual
4.5.1. Blood Glucose Diary
The blood glucose diary displays the measurement data in a tabular format, similar to typical blood
glucose diaries in a paper format; it displays the times with the measurement results. These values
are already checked, and if necessary, they can be corrected or marked in the “DATA ENTRY” section.
(The program shows the marks added to the results along with the comments.)
The values are color-coded to denote the following ranges:
•
red – hyper,
•
pink – high
•
black – normal
•
yellow - low
•
blue – hypo
These color codes are applied to all sections with statistics. (Daily averages, Statistics)
32
Lite Link mini USB & Diatransfer 2
User manual
If “LO” is displayed as a result after testing, this means that the measured value is too low, and is out
of the measurement range!
If “HI” is displayed as a result after testing, this means that the measured values is too high, and is
out of the measurement range!
In either HI or LO appears, contact your healthcare professional immediately.
Also, if the program displays HI or LO, the measurement is out of the glucose meter’s normal range
and the exact value cannot be displayed, either on the meter or on the computer.
Incorrect high or low results may have serious medical consequences. If your blood glucose is
unusually high (higher than 16 mmol/l) or low (lower than 3 mmol/l), or if you question your results,
repeat the test more carefully using a new strip. Consult your healthcare professional before making
significant changes to your diabetes medication program. Do not ignore physical symptoms.
33
Lite Link mini USB & Diatransfer 2
User manual
4.5.2. Timeline
The results are displayed here in a graphical format. The blood glucose values are located on the
vertical axis. The values can be displayed in units of mmol/L or mg/dL, depending on the unit
settings. (To find the setting, go to: Settings, Measurement, and Glucose Unit). The horizontal axis
represents the time values. The chart can be controlled with the mouse. When you point on a
measurement (rep point on the curve), the parameters are displayed. You will see the actual
measured value, the time, when the measurement was made, and any flags that may be connected
to that value.
The two green horizontal lines define the normal range (as was set in the Settings menu, under
Measurement values). This range includes the values that represent healthy results for the person.
The two horizontal red lines define the adjusted acceptable zone. If a value is outside of this range,
contact your healthcare professional immediately.
The diagram can be enlarged by scrolling with the mouse. It can also be zoomed out in the same way,
by moving backwards. To move the chart to the left or the right just click, hold the button, and drag
the diagram.
34
Lite Link mini USB & Diatransfer 2
User manual
4.5.3. Daily averages
This tab displays the averages, the extreme values, and the deviation of the measurements in a daily
unit, like a logbook.
The measurement results are assigned to the timing settings (Settings/ Timing/ Time blocks). The
program automatically pairs results with the corresponding mealtimes (based on the time setting on
both the measuring device and on the program) Marks can specify these values. For example, the
“PREMEAL” mark automatically assigns it to the appropriate pre-mealtime interval.
35
Lite Link mini USB & Diatransfer 2
User manual
4.5.4. Statistics
On this tab, Diatransfer 2 summarizes the measurement results (including the edited results and
ignoring the marked ones) and calculates the statistics for the specified period. (The period can be
set with the sliders at the top.) These calculations show how many results were evaluated, as well as
the minimum and maximum values, including the mean blood glucose results.
The hypo, hyper, low, high, and normal ranges are displayed in pie chart format with different colors.
The color scheme is the same as was shown earlier, in the “Blood gl. diary” or the “Daily averages”
tabs.
From this information, the software can create report, which can be downloaded and saved in PDF
format. On this report, the heading gives the patient’s name, birthdate, and the time the report was
created. The document itself displays the averages, the deviation, the range limits, and the pie chart
format of the results with a timeline diagram. This report is a great help for your doctor when you
have a medical examination, as it gives him/her a more complete picture of your health status.
First press the “MAKE REPORT” button; then you can download the report as a PDF document. The
PDF report can be easily printed; just click on “Print” or push the “CTRL”+ P” buttons.
