Nova Diabetes Care Offers Free Nova Max® Link Meter for
Medtronic MiniMed Paradigm Pump Users

June 10, 2011, Waltham, Ma. On May 9, 2011, LifeScan, Inc., makers of the OneTouch® UltraLink brand of blood glucose monitoring systems, announced the termination of their exclusive agreement with Medtronic MiniMed to supply MiniMed Paradigm pump users in the U.S with LifeScan’s OneTouch UltraLink glucose meter. In response to this termination announcement, Nova Diabetes Care is offering Minimed Paradigm users a free Nova Max Link meter to replace their OneTouch UltraLink meters. Medtronic MiniMed users can obtain a free Nova Max Link replacement by calling the Nova Customer Care line 800-681-7390 and mentioning coupon code FREELINKPR.

Nova Max Link, the original glucose meter developed to communicate wirelessly to the Medtronic pump, is the ideal solution for MiniMed Paradigm insulin pump users. Nova Max Link is the only glucose meter that can communicate wirelessly with MiniMed Paradigm pumps and not require meter coding, removing a potential error-inducing step. Its tiny 0.3 microliter blood sample and 33 gauge lancet mean less pain for self-testing, an important consideration for people who test frequently.

When used with the Paradigm Insulin Pump, blood glucose test values obtained using the Nova Max Link are automatically sent to the Paradigm pump for use by Medtronic’s Bolus Wizard™ Calculator. This calculates the amount of insulin needed to reach target blood glucose levels. The meter may also be used as a communication device to facilitate the transfer of information between the pump and a personal computer.
