SALEM, N.H., Oct. 9 The Wellion Linus Blood GlucoseMonitoring System, powered by WaveSense technology for high accuracy testing,recently received certification by the Netherlands Organization for AppliedScientific Research TNO ("TNO"). TNO is an independent group founded in 1932that thoroughly tests and inspects medical devices. The Wellion Linus BloodGlucose also carries the CE Marking.

"Receiving the TNO approval is a testament to the quality and accuracy ofWaveSense products," said Dr. E. van Ballegooie, one of the leading physiciansin the Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg region. "Roche and Abbott are the othermajor brands to receive the TNO approval; this clearly demonstrates thatWaveSense is one of the leading technologies in the world."

In addition to market leading features such as having a fast test time,small sample size, and large backlit display, the Wellion Linus's main featureis its ability to provide high accuracy test results due to its WaveSensetechnology. For a list of the other blood glucose monitors that have receivedTNO approval, see: http://www.tnokeur.nl/.

"TNO is known throughout Europe for their high standards and its tests areoften more rigorous than the requirements for the mandatory CE Marking. We arehonored to place the prestigious TNO seal on our WaveSense products. TNOcertification is a tremendous advantage since we are penetrating demandingmarkets, such as The Netherlands, where users prefer very rigorous accuracystandards for home blood glucose monitoring systems," said Werner Trenker, CEOof MedTrust, distributor of WaveSense products in Europe.

WaveSense technology is a suite of patented technologies that enable highaccuracy glucose monitoring products. WaveSense employs DynamicElectrochemistry to extract a spectrum of information inaccessible totraditional static electrochemistry methods. WaveSense technology aids in thedetection of a wide range of variables that can distort a glucose reading,these variables can be corrected through advanced signal processing algorithmsin the meter, thus leading to accurate readings.

"Accuracy is the most important feature of any glucose monitoring system.If people are checking their blood sugar regularly, they may as well get areliable number. Getting wildly fluctuating readings is one of the mostdiscouraging aspects of monitoring. WaveSense products help users by providingconsistent, repeatable results that they trust," says John Walsh, PA, CDE,Diabetes Clinical Specialist at Advanced Metabolic Care + Research inEscondido, CA, and author of Pumping Insulin: Everything You Need For SuccessOn A Smart Insulin Pump. "And being one of the few meters that has passed TNOstandards really speaks to the performance and quality of the WaveSenseMeter."

The Wellion Linus, powered by WaveSense technology, also holds the CE Markand is commercially available in many countries throughout Europe. The WellionLinus is marketed as the WaveSense KeyNote and the Liberty Meter in the UnitedStates, the iTest in Canada, and the GracePro in China.
