Important Test Strip Caution Points before use:

  • The iGlucose Blood Glucose Meter can only be used with the iGlucose Blood Glucose Test Strips and the Rightest® Control Solution GC550. The use of other test strips or control solutions can lead to incorrect results or a strip error.
  • Close the iGlucose Test Strips vial immediately after removing a test strip.
  • The iGlucose Test Strip should be stored capped in their vial.
  • Use each iGlucose Test Strip immediately after removing it from the vial to avoid exposure to light and humidity.
  • Test strips that are left out of the vial should not be used for testing.
  • Do not reuse iGlucose Test Strips.
  • Do not use expired iGlucose Test Strips (See expiration date on Test Strip vial.).
  • When you open a new vial of iGlucose Blood Glucose Test Strips, record the date on the vial. Discard the vial of test strips after 3 months from opening.
  • Store the iGlucose Test Strips, between 39-86°F (or 4-30°C) and in a location 10-90% relative humidity. Do not expose to direct sunlight or heat.
  • Storage of strips near bleach as well as bleach containing products will affect the results of the iGlucose Test Strips.
  • Do not perform testing immediately after moving from one ambient temperature to another (e.g. after coming indoors from the outside). Allow 45 minutes for the temperature of the meter and the test strips to equilibrate. The need to wait 45 minutes is required when for example, a meter is kept for a while in a car on a hot afternoon and then brought into an air conditioned room for testing or when a meter is kept outside on a snowy day and then brought into a warm room.
  • Apply the blood sample to the sample port of the test strip only.
  • A blood sample should ONLY be applied to the test strip after the test strip has been inserted correctly and the meter’s screen shows both a blood drop icon and the message “Apply a drop of blood”. This takes 3 seconds from the time a test strip is inserted. During this time the iGlucose Blood Glucose Meter performs an internal check. If the blood drop icon and the message are NOT showing on the screen, do not apply a sample to the test strip as it will result in an error message.
  • Always keep the metal contacts of the test strip port clean. If any dust or impurities are present, please clean with a small, soft brush. 
  • The iGlucose Blood Glucose Monitoring System and iGlucose Lancing Device are intended for a single user only. Do not share these devices with anyone, including other family members.
  • All parts of this kit are considered biohazards and can potentially transmit infectious diseases, even after you have performed the cleaning and disinfecting procedure.
  • Users should wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling the meter, lancing device, and test strips.
