Friday 17th February 2017
Julie James AM, Minister for Skills and Technology met with Dr John Rees, director of JRBiomedical Ltd on Thursday morning along with other medical and technology companies who have their research laboratories based at Glyndŵr University in North Wales.
Dr Rees gave Julie James AM a brief introduction to the company, demonstrated their new bluetooth enabled blood glucose meter and spoke about plans of a feasibility study to develop a new noninvasive concept in monitoring blood glucose levels.
As well as distributing the VivaChek range of blood glucose meters on behalf of US company, VivaChek Laboratories Inc, JRBiomedical also develops, manufactures and distributes diagnostics for monitoring pharmaceutical processes and clinical diagnostics for use by hospitals and medical research institutes.
The VivaChek range of blood glucose meters are supported by a nurse led customer care team. Test strips are available on prescription priced £8.99 for 50 strips (2 x 25 vials) throughout the UK. The 8 electrode technology employed by VivaChek was rated 9/10 as easy to use and offers a number of benefits over other similarly priced meters including automatic control recognition, wide haematocrit and humidity compensation as well as a large, easy to read screen.
