Bringing our proven biosensing and glucose monitoring technology to a wider audience.
Sanofi is one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and a global healthcare leader, delivering innovative therapeutic solutions for patients’ needs.
Well-known for their portfolio of insulin and insulin delivery devices, Sanofi was looking to expand into the blood glucose monitoring (BGM) market. After a comprehensive search, they selected AgaMatrix as their exclusive BGM partner.
This strategic, long-term partnership allows us to co-develop cutting-edge solutions in diabetes management featuring AgaMatrix’s patented WaveSense technology, ushering in the next generation of blood glucose monitors with intelligent features and integrated connectivity.
BGStar® – the first glucose meter developed for Sanofi, with built-in blood glucose insights (pre/post meal tagging, averages, and glucose variability).
iBGStar® – the first glucose meter to directly connect to the iPhone® and iPod touch®, featured in Apple® retail stores, and recipient of the Red Dot Design Award and GOOD DESIGN award.
MyStar Extra® – the first self-monitoring device to provide estimated A1C values, to facilitate monitoring of blood glucose progress between doctor visits.
MyStar DoseCoach® – the first glucose meter with integrated basal insulin titration, to assist users with insulin glargine dose calculations.
MyStar Plus® – a Bluetooth® enabled glucose meter that syncs to the MyStar Plus App to streamline diabetes data management.
In building our Global Diabetes Division, our objectives included conducting an exhaustive search for potential partners that have excellent core science, are highly innovative, and have the potential to develop a broad range of products. With AgaMatrix, we’ve found a company that can meet all three objectives in the BGM category.
Perrigo is a leading global healthcare supplier and the world’s largest manufacturer of over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical products for the store brand market.
In 2011, AgaMatrix partnered with Perrigo to develop and market private label blood glucose monitors for major retailers. Through Perrigo, our meters are available in over 15,000 retail pharmacies in the U.S., making it easier than ever to experience the power of WaveSense technology at an affordable price.
Developed the CVS Health Advanced Glucose Meter and the CVS Health Advanced Bluetooth Glucose Meter, available in over 9,800 pharmacies.
The CVS Health Advanced Glucose Meter was 1 of 6 glucose meters to receive the Diabetes Technology Society Seal of Approval, with 12 other well-known commercially available glucose meters failing to meet their surveillance program criteria.
Developed the premium and value line of glucose meters for Kroger, the nation’s largest supermarket chain, available at their in-store pharmacies across 35 states.
Developed traditional and Bluetooth® meters distributed by the regional supercenter chain Meijer.
Given the strong patient demand for high quality and value in this segment, we are very pleased to have completed this deal with AgaMatrix who, we believe, has industry-leading quality and technology.
By developing everything from enzymes and algorithms to glucose monitors and mobile apps, our diverse, talented teams deliver exceptional products to some of the world's largest pharmaceutical and retail companies. Contact us to discuss partnership opportunities.
