The Static Glucose-Error Grid Analysis (SG-EGA; Clarke Error Grid Analysis) is a Windows-based, statistical program designed for use by the diabetes technology industry in the evaluation of continuous glucose monitoring devices. Its analysis is based on the premise that a blood glucose meter is acceptable to the extent that it can be used to make clinically correct decisions. Paired blood glucose measurements, one from a laboratory reference analyzer and the other from a hand-held blood glucose meter, are evaluated and placed in one of five zones, based on a comparison of the clinical decisions that would be made using the blood glucose meter vs. the laboratory reference. The SG-EGA was originally designed by Dr. William Clarke at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA, USA.
