Which company manufactures the testing strips? Will I be able to buy the strips outside the USA?
I'm from Brazil and I have insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. I would like to know if I will be able to buy the testing strips at home.

Your best bet would be to contact
They are a worldwide company. The strips for the IBG Star meter are specific to the meter. First I would check iTunes in you country to see if iBGStar app is available, in the USA it is a free app and is the the other half of the meter. You can use the app without the meter to manually enter your readings. So far it is hands down the best blood glucose program I have found in the app store. To many features to go into here, take a look. The meter can be used to take readings without the app, but it really needs the app to achieve the level it does

I believe Agamatrix makes the strips. They are only compatible with the iBGStar though, i.e. not interchangeable with other Agamatrix strips.
The meter was released in Europe a few months back so it is available outside the US. My recommendation is to buy extra before you go to be sure.
