Ever wondered what's inside your Freestyle Libre reader? Here's the 43 megapixels answer (click here to download the file from a possibly temporary link). The shell of the reader is glued, it is relatively easy to glue it back together.
It's hard not to be impressed - this is a seriously beautiful board - with a properly attached USB port (something Dexcom G4 users will envy), plenty of test points and the expected chips.
Compared to some other medical devices, costing 20 times more, I have taken apart, I can confidently state that Abbott did put a lot of efforts in doing things correctly.
And, just in case you wonder if a Freestyle Libre Reader was hurt during this experiment, let me reassure you: the reader is still 100% functional.
