I currently use an Optium Xceed. One of the main reasons is that I can "top-up" the strip with more blood if I don't get enough on the first attempt. This happens quite frequently.

At my last clinic, I got a Optium Neo, which doesn't seem to allow this "top-up", nor does my Aviva Xpert. The Neo allows the clinic to upload all my readings to Diasend.

Does anyone know of a newer meter which allows blood top-ups, and is also compatible with Diasend?

Don't know about the Diasend compatibility but the Contour next test strips allow top up of blood if you didn't manage enough the first time.

there are a few different models of meter that are compatible with these strips, contour one, contour link etc...
