    Razor Razor Blade Model

    As Dexcom meter sales increase so will the reoccurring revenue stream.
    The disposables are where profits are generated or at least it is for a conventional glucose meter and strip industry.
    A glucose strip can be manufactured for as little #$%$ cents but sells for 75 cents.
    This is why glucose monitors are sold at cost or given to diabetics for free.
    Not sure what the kind of profit is generated from Dexcom’s disposable but I assume it is comparable to conventional monitors.
