Pepex Biomedical announced the development of Trio, a multi-function, single-unit blood glucose meter product line, which tests blood glucose levels and delivers insulin. The Trio Blood Glucose Meter, and smaller Trio Mini Blood Glucose Monitor, feature a side loaded, disposable smart cartridge that provides a traveling supply of molded glucose test chips that consolidate the lancet, sampling and analysis functions within a small, easily disposed unit that requires no handling of hazardous sharps. Also in development is the Trio Ultra Blood Glucose Monitor, which in addition to the features of the Trio Blood Glucose Meter, also delivers the dosage of insulin based on the blood glucose reading and contains an additional micro reservoir/pump that can hold up to 200 units of insulin.

The Trio blood glucose meters product line is expected to be available in May 2012.
