I saw a commercial with Alan Thicke about a prickless blood sugar tester from ccs corp and i forgot to get the number. Does anyone know it or heard of this particular company?

Does it say "no more pricking your fingers"? That just means you can use an alternate site, such as forearms.

I watched the commercial online. Within the first 30 seconds, he says you can test on your arms. All new meters can do the same. I know nothing about the company, CCS, that he is promoting.
