Measurements from the Roche Accu-Chek Go are compared to those from All HGMs failed to sense hypoglycemia to some extent. The unspecified Tyson Bio EZ Smart device was significantly inferior to the Roche Accu-Chek Go, the Ascensia (Bayer) Contour TS, the Abbott Optium Xceed and the J&J OneTouch Select in the critical error Zone D of the Clarke Error Grid. The OneTouch Select was significantly inferior in error Zone B while the Accu-Chek Go, the Contour TS, and the Optium Xceed had similar performances and were significantly better than the other two HGMs., though not in a formal validation.
Insulin hypoglycemia test in volunteers without diabetes mellitus or any other metabolic diseases (n=59). One of the devices is indicated as the EZ Smart. However, this is a trademark used by Tyson Bio for a number of its devices. The actual device used is not stated in the paper.
