Main features of the G Sensor (aluminum pack)


An easy-to-open format allows even patients with weakness in the hands to open the pack.


•Portable and useful

Compact aluminum packs take up very little space, and allows you to take just the number of sensors you need with you.

•A long shelf life

Each sensor is protected with dessicant in each aluminum pack making it resistant to moisture.
This means you can use each sensor any time up until its own shelf life expires.
