Managing diabetes just got a little bit easier. For the first time in history J.D. Power and Associates, the premier market research firm, has reviewed
blood glucose meters based on feedback and insights from nearly 3,000 people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. According to this inaugural J.D. Power and
Associates 2012 Blood Glucose Meter Satisfaction StudySM, Roche Diabetes Care’s ACCU-CHEK® ranked “Highest in Overall Satisfaction with Blood Glucose
Meters.” The study looked at meter performance, ease-of-use, cost of test strips and training. Now with the results of this new customer satisfaction
study, people with diabetes can be confident with their meter choice.

“A blood glucose meter is one of the most important tools for people with diabetes as it empowers them to independently manage their diabetes on a daily
basis,” said Debbie Hinnen, a diabetes educator and director of education services at Mid-America Diabetes Associates. “Therefore, a meter that is accurate
and easy to use is key as it helps to ensure patients make informed decisions about their meal plan, exercise, insulin use and other lifestyle challenges.”

The survey comes on the heels of two new product launches from Roche in the past 12 months – ACCU-CHEK Aviva Plus and ACCU-CHEK Nano SmartView systems –
both of which deliver advanced accuracy as tested against a 23% tighter specification.1

ACCU-CHEK meters are available in pharmacies and retailers nationwide as well as online. For more information, please visit


1. Specifications based on current Internal Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15197: 2003.


Roche Diagnostics received the highest numerical score in the proprietary J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Blood Glucose Meter Satisfaction StudySM.
Study based on 2,681 total responses measuring 4 providers and measures the opinions of consumers who use a blood glucose meter. Proprietary study
results are based on experiences and perceptions of consumers surveyed October 2012. Your experiences may vary. Visit
