Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre Flash Continuous Glucose Monitoring System Gets CE Mark

Freestyle-LibreAbbott’s FreeStyle Libre Flash continuous glucose monitoring system has received the CE mark from European authorities, allowing it to be marketed in the European Union. The system contains two parts: a water resistant sensor that is attached to the back of the arm, and a device that copies and displays readings from the sensor. The device takes readings every minute, swapping between 4mm and 5mm filaments that penetrate the skin. Unlike all other sensors on the market, the Libre Flash does not require finger prick calibration, and can record and store glucose readings over an extended period of time, allowing for both users and their primary care physicians to gain a better understanding of their glucose levels on a day-to-day basis.
