Question

Why are control solutions sold with this glucometer when it says no coding required.

SK

Answer

With some glucose testing systems, a code or even a chip is used to “calibrate” the meter to the test strips. With the Microdot Xtra, no code chip or in putting a code is required. Any bottle of test strips can be used in any meter without coding or calibrating. With any FDA approved blood glucose meter for multi patient use, control solutions should be performed per manufacturer’s guidelines. This is done to check the test strips and should be done with the Microdot Xtra blood glucose meter: When a new bottle of test strips has been opened, if a reading is in question, or if a bottle of test strips has been opened for a period of time.
