The name SüChek evolved from the combination of two words sugar and check as well as our previously developed product platform uChek. A large population in the country neglects the importance of tracking blood sugar levels because the cost per test prohibits adoption. In order to address this rising trend of diabetes in the country, we came up with a solution that is accurate and cost effective at the same time.
The device uses a colorimetric system to detect the change in colour of the test strip. It requires soaking the test area of the strip with a blood drop for 30 seconds following which it is wiped and placed in the reader. The reader detects the change in colour and estimates blood glucose concentration accurately.
The accuracy of SüChek is comparable to other glucose concentration analyser instruments available in market and is in
compliance with ISO 15197 with greater than 95% readings with +/-
20% of the reference.

- Portable & lightweight:
- Diabetes monitoring has never been more affordable. SüChek uses blood glucose reagent strips (GRS) that change colour depending on concentration of glucose in blood. These strips are equally reliable and more cost effective as compared to existing glucose strips in the market.
- SüChek can be connected with a smartphone running on Android platform and the data can be imported into an android app. You can analyse, share and trend your glucose levels as well as get health tips to intelligently monitor your sugar levels.
- You can sync all your entries on the smartphone but in case you don't, you can still view the most recent results by using the two way scrolling buttons on SüChek. Upto 500 new test entries always remain in device. Oldest entry gets replaced if memory is full.
- The device is smaller than a deck of visiting cards, easily slips into your bag and weighs less than 100gms.

How to use
You will need Biosense GRS (Glucose Reagent Strip)
Switch On the device (Top button)
Prick your finger with a lancet. A sufficiently large drop of blood is needed.
Spread the blood drop evenly on the test pad of the strip as shown below. Immediately, press the test (bottom) button to initiate the 60 second countdown.
Now wait for exactly 30 seconds to let the test pads soak up the blood.
At 30th second wipe off the excess blood from the strip using a tissue paper.
Insert the strip in the device into the slot on the right side as shown below. Make sure that the test pads are facing the top.
Press the start button, the device will measure & display the blood glucose content in mg/dL.
