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:
- How often does the Glucoscan II need to be calibrated in practical, everyday use conditions?
- How accurate is the Glucoscan II compared to other similar systems that your patients have used?
- 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.
