New Laboratory Blood Glucose Reference Analyzer from Nova Biomedical

WALTHAM, Mass. - BostonChron -- Nova Biomedical announces the availability of Nova Primary, a rapid, accurate, easy to use blood glucose reference analyzer. Nova Primary fills the need for a new glucose reference correlation analyzer to replace the YSI 2300 (YSI, Inc., Yellow Springs, OH).

Manufacturers of blood glucose measuring devices and clinical researchers have relied on the YSI 2300 as a reference and correlation analyzer. However, as of July 2021, YSI will no longer support the analyzer, and its discontinuation has left a void. The Nova Primary analyzer fills that need. It will be available in December, 2020 for CE regulated countries and was submitted to the U.S. FDA in November 2020.

Like the YSI 2300, Nova Primary uses a single, reusable glucose electrochemical sensor based on glucose oxidase and has a measurement range of 0-1000 mg/dL. It uses a small, 25 microliter whole blood or plasma sample which is internally diluted like the YSI, and results are available in approximately 2 minutes. Nova Primary's large color touchscreen display and intuitive, icon-based graphical user interface make it very straightforward to use. A single calibrator pack uses RFID data management to monitor the pack expiration date and remaining samples available, eliminating the need for separate reagent bottles and daily monitoring of their levels. It has excellent correlation to the YSI glucose analyzer and is traceable to NIST glucose standards. Data download is compatible with the YSI Data Manager Desktop Software. The Nova Primary measures 17 in x 11 in x 18 in (44 cm x 28 cm x 46 cm).
