microdot® Control Solutions are for use only with the microdot® Meters and microdot® Test Strips. They allow you to check that the meter and test strips are working correctly and that you are testing correctly. You should do control solution tests routinely to check that you are getting accurate results.
microdot® Control Solutions contain a known amount of glucose. A test with a microdot® Control Solution is like a blood test except that you use a Control Solution instead of blood. The test result using a Control Solution should fall within the range of results printed on your vial of strips.
Test result that is within the expected range shows that the meter and strips are working correctly and that you are testing correctly.
microdot® Control Solutions are blue aqueous solutions containing a range of approximately a 0.04 to 0.3% D-glucose for low, normal and high values.
Store the control solution at room temperature between 50 and 86°F (10 and 30°C).Do not refrigerate. Do not freeze. Do not use beyond expiration date or beyond 90 days after opening.
Apply the drop of Control Solution to the top edge of the strip. You may also apply a drop to your finger and test as if it were a drop of blood (See test strip instructions.)
At room temperature, the Control Solution results should fall within the range printed on the test strip vial label. If test results fall outside the expected range, repeat the test. Results that fall outside the expected range may indicate:
If you continue to get results that fall outside the expected ranges, call Customer Service at 877-374-4062. DO NOT test your blood until you obtain control results that fall within the expected range.
