LifeScan, Inc., manufacturer of the OneTouch® Ultra Link™ brand of blood glucose monitoring systems, announced in May, 2011, the termination of their exclusive agreement with Medtronic MiniMed to supply MiniMed Paradigm insulin pump users in the U.S. with LifeScan’s OneTouch Ultra Link glucose meter. In response to this termination announcement, Nova Diabetes Care is offering Minimed Paradigm users a free Nova Max Link to replace the One Touch Ultra Link meter. Medtronic MiniMed users can obtain a Nova Max Link replacement by calling the Nova Customer Care Line 800-681-7390.
When used with the Medtronic Paradigm pump, the Nova Max Link glucose results are automatically sent to the Paradigm pump for use by Medtronic’s Bolus Wizard® Calculator. The Nova Max Link may also be used as a communication device to facilitate the transfer of information between the pump and a personal computer.
Nova Max Link is the original glucose meter developed to communicate wirelessly with MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps. It does not require meter coding, removing a potential error-inducing step. It use a small 0.3 microliter blood sample and 33 gauge lancet mean less pain for self-testing, an important consideration for people who test frequently.
