A continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system consisting of a handheld reader, and a disposable sensor worn on your arm.
The sensor uses a thin, flexible filament inserted just under the skin to measure glucose levels continuously for 8 hours.
Use your handheld reader to scan the disposable sensor without the need to prick your fingers.††
Each painless, one-second scan shows:14
Manage and know more about your glucose without a finger prick.††
Use your reader to scan the sensor as often as you like, even through clothing.#14
Small, discreet, and comfortable to wear §14
Painless application 14
Painless and easy to apply. A very thin filament sits just under the skin to measure interstitial fluid.
Factory Calibrated 14
FreeStyle Libre is the only factory-calibrated glucose monitoring system. No fingerpick calibration required and gives accurate data.
Accurate Sensor Readings
Excellent accuracy overall#, in low glucose range23, and in pediatric patients24
Water resistant so you can swim, exercise and shower**
Continuously provides a complete picture
Measures your glucose every 1 minute, and stores glucose readings every 15 minutes.
Wear for up to 14 days

** Sensor is water resistant in up to 1 meter (3 feet) of water. Do not immerse longer than 30 minutes. †† Finger pricks are required if glucose readings and alarms do not match symptoms or expectations. † Data on File. Abbott Diabetes Care. # The FreeStyle Libre reader can capture data from within 1cm to 4cm of the sensor, even through clothing. § Sensor dimensions: 35mm x 5mm Weight: 5 grams.
