What is WaveSense™ Technology?

WaveSense™ is a suite of patented technologies that uniquely applies Dynamic Electrochemistry in blood glucose measurement to detect and correct for common sources of error, providing accurate results. WaveSense Technology is included in all AgaMatrix Meters.

How WaveSense™ Dynamic Electrochemistry® Works

WaveSense Dynamic Electrochemistry is able to detect and correct for common sources of distortions, providing accurate blood glucose measurements.

First, complex electrical signals are sent into the test strip to identify variations in the sample. Then advanced digital signal processing algorithms are used to correct for many errors caused by variations in blood samples and environmental conditions.

Static Electrochemistry (Many Other Meters)

Many other meters use Static Electrochemistry, which sends a simple constant signal into the test strip–typically ignoring distorting factors.

Why Accuracy Matters

Diabetes management starts with a blood glucose reading–what if it was off by 20%? Since diabetes treatment decisions are based on a blood glucose reading, accuracy can affect everything from how much insulin is taken to diet choices and even patient safety.

The chart below shows how varied a blood glucose reading can be at ±20% or ±10% compared to the actual blood glucose (laboratory result).

The current² industry standard accuracy for blood glucose meters allows for ±20% variation from a laboratory standard. The new industry standard (ISO 15197:2013³) to be in effect in May 2016 will allow for ±15% variation from a laboratory standard.

Clinical studies show that the AgaMatrix WaveSense JAZZ Meter provides results within ±15% from a laboratory standard 99% of the time, meeting the ISO 15197:2013 criteria.*
