Description:
The Entra MyGlucoHealth (MGH-BT1) is an automatic blood glucose meter. Its blood glucose measurement technology has been proven to be accurate, with a 2-star Medaval rating. Measurements are normally taken from the finger but alternative site testing is allowed and it is intended for self-measurement and home use.
Assessment:
The technology used in the Entra MyGlucoHealth (MGH-BT1), to measure blood glucose, has passed in a clinical validation study, in a general population, according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publication.
