The Nova StatStrip Glu is an automatic blood glucose meter. Its blood glucose measurement technology has been proven to be accurate, with a 1-star Medaval rating. Blood glucose measurements are taken from the finger. It is intended for professional use.
The technology used in the Nova StatStrip Glu, to measure blood glucose, has passed in three clinical validation studies, between general and young populations, according to recognised standard protocols, as published in peer-reviewed publications.
Accuracy AssessmentRecommendationBasis
BG Medaval Recommendation Older clinical validation; older protocol; multiple clinical validations
BG MDR Criteria Adults Validation with amended protocol - may require further study

Capillary and arterial blood glucose measured using the glucose meter are acceptable for intraoperative subcutaneous insulin dosing. Whole blood glucose on the meter did not meet accuracy guidelines established specifically for more intensive (e.g. intravenous insulin) glycemic control in the acute care environment.
