Why prick when you can scan? 
The days of routine glucose testing with lancets, test strips and blood are over.  Welcome to flash glucose monitoring! 
The FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a glucose monitoring system indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in persons aged 4 and older with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, without the use of lancets. The NZ FreeStyle Libre Sensor is NOT compatible with the European FreeStyle Libre Readers.
Product Features & Benefits:
  • Convenient - A small sensor automatically measures and continuously stores glucose readings day and night
  • Discreet - Glucose readings with a painless 1 second scan even through clothing
  • Easy - Swim, shower or exercise — the FreeStyle Libre system is designed to be water-resistant and worn while bathing, showering, swimming and exercising
  • User-friendly - With every scan you get your current glucose reading, the last 8 hours of glucose data and an arrow showing the direction your glucose is heading.

How to USE as part of the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System:

Apply the sensor
The FreeStyle Libre sensor is applied on to the back of the upper arm with a simple, disposable device called an applicator. When the sensor is applied, a thin, flexible and sterile fibre is inserted just under the skin. It is held in place with a small adhesive pad. Most people feel no pain when applying the sensor.
Scan sensor
To obtain a glucose reading, simply perform a quick, painless 1-second scan of the reader over the sensor. This scan gives you more information than monitoring with blood glucose test strip, without the need for routine finger pricks. The FreeStyle Libre system also offers software to generate concise reports to assist with the analysis of glucose data.
Get reading
Each scan of the reader over the sensor gives a current glucose reading, the last 8-hours of glucose history, and a trend arrow showing if glucose is going up, down, or changing slowly. The reader can even scan through clothing with a thickness of up to 4 mm.
Please note that FreeStyle Libre sensors have a 5- to 6-month expiration date.
This sensor is for use with the Freestyle Libre Reader (NZ version)



Extended Information:

Q: Does the FreeStyle Libre system need to be calibrated?

No, the FreeStyle Libre sensor is calibrated during the manufacturing process so you don't have to. The sensor is activated by scanning and then, after a 1 hour warm up period, it starts to record glucose readings automatically.

Q: Is FreeStyle Libre accurate?

The FreeStyle Libre system is clinically proven to be accurate, stable and consistent over 14 days compared to blood glucose testing without the need for finger prick calibration

Q: Is interstitial fluid an adequate replacement to blood glucose testing?

Interstitial fluid-based glucose readings are a reliable indicator of blood glucose levels.  The physiological lag in ISF glucose, with respect to changes in blood glucose, is about 5-10 minutes.  The average lag time of the FreeStyle Libre system is approximately 5 minutes, which is unlikely to impact routine day-to-day treatment decisions
