The three simple steps with the A1CNow test creates a more efficient office.

A1C Then A1C NOW

1. Venous sample drawn.

2. Sent to lab.

3. Lab work done.

4. Clinic contacted.

5. Patient chart reviewed.

6. Results reviewed.

7. Patient contacted.
7a.May require multiple calls.

1. Finger stick or venipuncture.

2. Results in 5 minutes.

3. Chart filed.

With immediate results the physicians are twice as likely to modify treatment on the spot. [5]


Patients who get immediate feedback may lower their A1C by up to 1%.


Lowering A1C levels reduces the risks of long term complications such as eye, kidney and nerve disease by 40%.


For every 1% reduction in A1C, the risk of developing eye, kidney and nerve disease is reduced by 40%

Real-time results. Better outcomes.

    * Study results with healthcare professionals showed that the accuracy of A1CNow+ with fingerstick samples was, on average, 99%. This means that, on average, a true 7.0% A1C could read approximately 6.9%A1C. An individual A1CNow+ result may differ by as much as -1.0% A1C to +0.8% A1C from the true result. This represents the 95% confidence limits of a Bland-Altman plot.
