Dear Dr. Gomez-Salinas:  

I am writing you in hopes of finding out more about how the 
new Glucoscan II blood glucose monitoring system, which a 
representative at Lifescan informed me that your clinic is 
currently using.  

Originally, I saw Lifescan's advertisement of this new 
device in the January 19XX issue of Diabetes Forecast and 
became very interested in it. I wrote the company and got 
much useful information, but was recommended to write 
several current users of the system as well.  

For a technical report that I am writing for a technical 
writing class at Johnson County Junior College, I need some 
help with the following questions:  

  1. How often does the Glucoscan II need to be calibrated in practical, everyday use conditions?
  2. How accurate is the Glucoscan II compared to other similar systems that your patients have used?
  3. What problems do your patients experience with this new device?
The Lifescan representative indicated that your clinic is one the leaders in implementing new technology for diabetics, and therefore I am eager to hear from you. In the report I will acknowledge your contributions, and I will send you a copy of the completed report if you wish. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely, Anita Teller Student, Medical Technology Johnson County Junior College
