AiDEX® CGM Academy

6th lesson - How much AiDEX CGM system is accurate ?

AiDEX is a real-time glucose monitoring system (RT-CGM) with four predefined alerts, a calibration free sensor and 14 day long wearing electrochemical sensor.The following will shed some light on how much AiDEX is accurate. It is very helpful to read it.

The system consists of three components:a single-use glucose sensor pre-assembled into a sensor applicator which can be applied to skin through one simple action, a reusable transmitter (4 years) and PDA (personal diabetes assistance) or Mobile application, And the system report glucose readings every 5 minutes.

   Accuracy evaluation: multi-center prospective clinical study.1

ISO 15197 is widely used for evaluating the accuracy of blood glucose self monitoring Meters(2). However, the accuracy of CGM Normally, can be assessed by MARD (Mean Absolute Relative Difference) and Error Grid Analysis (EGA).
The overall Mean Absolute Relative Difference (MARD) for AiDEX is 9.08%. The accuracy results were comparable to some of the current factory calibrated CGMS products including Dexcom G6 (Dexcom Inc. San Diego, CA, USA)(3) and Abbott Libre(4), with reported MARD of 9.0% and 9.4%, respectively.

And the results of 15/15%, 20/20%, 30/30% agreement analysis is 95.8% ( detailed in above table) of the total sensor readings were within ±20 mg/dL or ±20% of venous YSI reference values(2) .

In regards to the Error Grid Analysis (EGA). Typically, two types of error grids are used. These are the consensus error grid(5) (Chart a) and the Clarke error grid(6) (Chart b).

Error grids evaluate whether glucose monitoring system results are clinically acceptable based on how close they are to a reference glucose result. Error Grids are divided into zones A through E. Results in zones A and B are considered clinically acceptable, while readings outside of zones A and B may result in negative outcomes. Glucose systems with a significant percentage of results in zone A and B are more clinically accurate.

Conclusion and Recommendations:

In this prospective, multi center study, a 14-day use factory calibrated real-time AiEX continuous glucose monitoring system was evaluated in diabetic populations ( Type 1 and 2). The performance of the system was established by its accuracy across all clinically relevant glucose ranges with respect to reference measurement.

  • If you are new to AiDEX, it is recommended to set your alarms level between 80 mg/dl (low) and 200mg/dl (High), Later within 4 to 6 weeks you may change your target to be Low (70 mg/dl ) and High (180 mg/dl).
  • There were no significant differences between sensor accuracy at different wear locations. It is recommended that the sensor be installed in the abdomen. This is not related to sensor accuracy, but rather to keeping the sensor sticky to your body for the entire 14-day sensor life.
  • Sensor accuracy was conducted for Day 2 to 14.
