BLOOD GLUCOSE METER

I HAVE BEEN USING ACCUCHEK GLUCOMETER FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS AND IT IS

GIVING ACCURATE READINGS WHICH HAVE BEEN CORROBORATED AT THE PATHOLOGY LAB.

THE STRIPS ARE EASILY AVAILABLE AT LOW COST IN BOMBAY AT THE DAWA BAZAR PRINCESS STREET- 100 STRIPS FOR RS 1000/-.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE EXP DATE IS NOT EXCEEDED

STORING IN THE CONTAINER IS V. IMPORTANT AND IT SHOULD NOT BE KEPT OPEN.

IMMDLY ON TAKING THE STRIP OUT THE CONTAINER SHOULD BE CLOSED , AND THE COLOR ON THE CIRCLE OF THE FRESH STRIP SHOULD BE YELLOW.

IF THE COLOR IS GREENISH- THE MOISTURE HAS ENTERED OR THE STRIP HAS EXPIRED AND WILL GIVE ERROR OR WRONG READINGS.

OTHERWISE THE MACHINE DOES NOT GIVE PROBLEMS AND THE COMPANY PROVIDES VERY PROMPT HOME SERVICE IF REQD FOR LIFETIME.

here in delhi chemists are minting money and they prefer to sell pack of 50 for 1000-1100

i insist on pack of 100 and finaly get for 1300. this time i got through ebay.com for 1140 + rs.40 service charges. surprisingly i am using the strips for the last 8 years and expiry is always there. please recheck all what is mentioned on white box which contain the strips and not the pack box.

What to say. There is no standard price or practice among the retailers/dealers. In a country where onion is sold close to 100/kg, Traders, Middlemen and the Politicians rule the roost.

Could you please give me the address and telephone number of the shop at Princess St. or any other location in Mumbai where the said strips are available for that price? I am currently using One Touch Horizon and the strips are very costly (Rs.650 just for 25 strips). This is the MRP price which all medical stores at Borivali (West) in Mumbai are charging. Many thanks

The cost of Acucheck Activa in Bangalore bought through APPOLO PHARMACY for 50 stricts after 10% discount is Rs.1000.- It is double the rate at which it is said to be sold at Bombay. And mostly 50 packs are unavailable, forcing 25 strip packet to be bought at Rs.700+. Why should the company do such dirty tricks to market their products?

it is corporate world,just how to get profits.

This is being done by the dealers to earn money as they import these and the company does not gain from this.
