LifeScan unveils new colors for glucose monitors

MILPITAS, Calif. LifeScan on Friday introduced two new colors for its line of OneTouch UltraMini Meters—purple twilight and blue comet.

The two new colors were included in response to consumer preferences. During the 2007 “What’s Your Color?” Giveaway, an online sweepstakes in which 10,000 winners received a OneTouch UltraMini Meter in the color of their choice, entrants were also asked to vote for their favorite future color offerings, and purple topped the list.

In subsequent customer feedback and market research, LifeScan also found that purple was the top requested color among women and blue was the overall most-requested color among both men and women.

“By providing people with product choices that reflect their individual taste and sense of style, we hope to help make glucose monitoring feel a little less clinical and a lot more personal,” stated Kim Mullarkey, LifeScan vice president of U.S. marketing.

Since the introduction of colors in 2007, the OneTouch UltraMini Meter has become the No. 1 selling blood glucose monitor nationwide, the company stated.
