Testing Materials: Important Information: Caution: Before using any product to test your blood glucose, read all instructions carefully and practice the test. 10-Test A UTODISC (Contains ten test strips.) Normal Control Solution Adjustable ® ICROLET Lancing Device and Lancet A full display, as shown here, indicates that all characters in the display are working properly.
INSERTING A 10-TEST A WARNING: Never open the meter with the meter handle pulled out. Open Meter 1. Hold the meter with the display screen down. Open the meter by pressing down on the back edge of the open latch and then pulling the front cover 2.
Insert Disc 3. Insert a new 10-test disc—yellow arrow (bumpy side) up. The arrow may point in any direction. Close Meter 4. Close the meter and snap it shut. Keep the meter ﬂat. Helpful Hint: The meter must be kept ﬂat when closing. If the meter is not kept ﬂat, the disc may move and become damaged and you may waste test strips.
Counting Number of Strips Left Your Ascensia ™ ® REEZE Meter will automatically count down the number of test strips you have left. To see this count when the meter is off, press the button. Note: This count is reset to 10 every time you open the meter.
RUNNING A BLOOD GLUCOSE TEST: 1. Wash your hands well with soap and warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. 2. Remove the endcap from the ® Adjustable Lancing ICROLET Device. (See M ICROLET package insert for complete instructions.) 3. Insert lancet ﬁrmly until it comes to a full stop.
4. Twist off lancet cap and replace the endcap. Push out Test Strip Caution: Your meter is designed to push out one test strip at a time. Do not attempt to push out a new test strip with one already showing. 5.
Note: This will automatically turn your meter on if it is not al- ready on. For regular, everyday use you don’t have to worry about turning it on— just “Pull and Push.” Note: The release button is UP, a test strip is pushed out and a ﬂashing blood drop appears on the screen.
Test 7. Your test strip is like a straw; it sips in a sample of blood. Move the entire front edge of the test strip to touch the edge of the blood drop. The blood is automatically pulled into the test strip and ﬁlls the test strip.
8. While the meter calculates your blood glucose level, you will see a sequence of dashes on the screen. After 30 seconds, your test result will appear on the screen.
9.To release the used test strip, hold the meter with the test strip pointing down over a waste container. Press the release button. Make sure the heel of your hand is not against the meter handle. Note: If you block the meter handle with your hand, the test strip may not release properly.
For best results: • Blood is pulled IN the test strip not dropped ON. • Do not allow blood to run down into the meter. • Do not add more blood after the meter beeps.
RUNNING A CONTROL TEST: There are times when you will want to do a quality control test so you know that your system is working properly. You may also want to do a control test to check the way you do your test.
Note: The release button is UP, a test strip is pushed out and a ﬂashing blood drop appears on the screen. The meter is now ready to run a control test. 2. Squeeze a small drop of control solution onto a nonabsorbent surface (such as a clean piece of wax paper).
4. While the meter calculates your control test result, you will see a sequence of dashes on the screen. After 30 seconds, your control test result will appear on the screen. Compare this control test result with the range printed on the bottom ﬂap of the test strip carton.
Marking a Control Test Marking a test result as a control test excludes it from the 14-day average. You must mark the result immediately after the test is performed—while the result is still displayed on the screen. To do this, follow these steps: 5.
Marking a Deleted Blood Test Marking a test result as a deleted blood test excludes it from the 14-day average. You must mark the result immediately after the test is performed—while the result is still displayed on the screen. To do this, follow these steps: 1.
