What type of studies qualify?

We carefully review all support requests


Applications for LifeScan IIS support undergo extensive assessment by a cross-functional team consisting of medical, clinical, and technical staff.


The following criteria are important factors for assessing proposed studies:

  • Originality of research
  • Scientific and statistical soundness
  • Safety and welfare of the subjects
  • Impact on clinical and commercial strategies
  • Impact on intellectual property portfolio
  • Consideration of good clinical practices (GCP)
  • Consistency with governmental and corporate health care compliance directives

LifeScan generally does not provide support for studies:

  • That involve an investigational/pre-cleared device
  • In which the primary study objective is intended to support a registration effort, labeling changes, or other regulatory action
  • That are primarily supported by another company (e.g., pharmaceutical or competitor)
