FORA 6 Plus

New Multi-functional Monitoring System with the level of precision and accuracy according to laboratory analysis.

ForaCare is the first handheld 6-parameter meter in the world that enables the measurements of 6 parameters for a faster and more comprehensive testing. For blood glucose measurement, the FORA® 6 series simply requires a very small sample size (0.5 μL of blood) and a 5-second reaction time. The reliable test results can help users manage their own or their patients’ health conditions and make timely lifestyle changes to avoid hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Especially, FORA 6 Plus is designed for advanced diabetes management, not only measure blood glucose (BG), but also provides the other 5 parameters: hematocrit concentration (HCT), hemoglobin (HB), β-Ketone (KB), Uric Acid (UA) and Total Cholesterol (TCH) in a simple, accurate and reliable way.
