What are the different box colors?
Manufacturers make the same product for different sales channels. While the product is the same, the outside of the box is different. We acquire the box which is the lowest price and pass the savings on to you. Currently, OneTouch is the in the process of updating their box colors to Green/Yellow/White. The Black/White & Blue/White boxes will be phased out.
Originally there were 2 colors (both are the same):
Black/White = OneTouch Verio DME Box
Blue/White = OneTouch Verio Retail Box
Currently there are 3 colors (all three are the same):
Black/White = Old OneTouch Verio DME Box
Blue/White = Old OneTouch Verio Retail Box
Green/Yellow/White = New OneTouch Verio Box (for both DME and Retail)
