Mendor announced a recent partnership with A. Menarini Diagnostics. Mendor's tight all-in-one blood glucose monitoring system will be hitting nine European markets, according to the Sacramento Bee. This slick Euro design is destined for a worldwide roll out.

There's no case needed with this modern system — it's conveniently built right into this user-friendly device. Reminiscent of the Swiss army knife, once it slides open, everything you need is inside. It speaks to the simpletons out there, myself included.

Dr. Izzo from Manarini Diagnostics states this product offers patients "a meter which is not only an attractive in design but also clinically proven, high quality and, above all, discreet." Menarini's products are known for enhancing the quality of patient's lives and this product is proof in the pudding.

Measuring time is 5 seconds, posting results from 20-600 mg/dl. At .2 pounds, it surely won't be weighing your purse down, either. The meter, strips and lancing device are all included in this blood glucose monitoring system; which is similar in size to a mobile phone.

If you find yourself crawling under your child's bed at 1 am looking for their lancing device that has rolled out of their unzipped glucometer case — this was built for you.
