The growing number of individuals living in nursing homes or other long term care facilities who have diabetes will be the primary driver of market growth. However, as assisted living is becoming more popular, patients are opting for their own personal meters. Long term care centers are also starting to enforce one patient-one meter policies, shifting the focus away from professional meters and test strips.
Blood glucose test strips are thin strips with enzymes that react to blood droplets. These create either a photometric or electrochemical response which is read by a glucose meter. Strips vary by size, chemical makeup, fluid channels, etc. and are typically sold in containers of 50 or 100. A single strip is used for each test, and some brands have preloaded strip storage within their meters.
