POGO Automatic Monitoring System

The POGO Automatic Monitor, unlike traditional blood glucose meters, lets patients test their blood glucose with the press of a button; no separate lancing device is required. Patients simply press the test port for auto lancing and blood collection and after a short countdown receive a blood glucose result.

The POGO Automatic Monitor and POGO Automatic Test Cartridge together make up the POGO Automatic Blood Glucose Monitoring System. Everything patients need to test their blood glucose is contained in the POGO Automatic Test Cartridge. No separate lancing device is required. Each cartridge combines 10 test strips and 10 lancets.

Inside the package, patients will find the following:

POGO Automatic Monitor
POGO Automatic Owner’s Manual
POGO Automatic Quick Start Guide
Warranty Registration Card
Two AAA batteries

POGO Automatic Test Cartridges sold separately.
Each cartridge contains 10 tests and 10 lancets.

At glucose concentrations of <75 mg/dL, 100% of POGO Automatic self-test glucose results were within ±15 mg/dL of the reference YSI results.

At glucose concentrations of ≥75 mg/dL, 99% of POGO Automatic glucose results were within ±20% of the reference YSI results.

Blood glucose monitors are expected to have an accuracy of ±15% compared to the value on a laboratory-based reference system. Accuracy requirements are set out in FDA’s guidance entitled “Self-Monitoring Blood Glucose Test System for Over-the-Counter Use.” As explained in the cartridge insert, the POGO Automatic Monitoring System meets the expected ±15% accuracy.

The POGO Automatic Monitor measures only 4″ x 2″ x 1.5″ and weighs 3.4 ounces with batteries, so it easily fits in a pocket or purse without the need to also carry a test case full of supplies.

No. POGO Automatic is a self-coding blood glucose monitor. It automates blood collection and provides test results. Patients do only one simple step.
