My current understanding of the ReliOn meters is that Arkray makes the ReliOn Mini and Confirm and Abbott makes the ReliOn Ultima.

Anyone know where I can get a carry case for the Victoza and needs to keep in my purse?

Reli-on was bought by Arkray USA who makes the Glucocard line of meters.
Glucocard meters are supossed to be very accurate and the strip prices are cheap.
And if you have a Glucocard meter, the reli-on strips work in those meters, at least the meter that I have.
