cets. You may also need Ascensia

2.
Read your user guide and all instructional materials pro-
vided in your meter kit before testing.
3.
Let the meter and test strips adjust to the temperature
of the location where you are testing. Whenever the
meter is moved from one location to another, allow 20
minutes for the meter to adjust to the temperature of
that new location before performing a blood glucose
test. The products have been designed to give accurate
results at temperatures between 41°F and 113°F.
4.
It is important not to use the test strips or control
solution if the expiration date printed on the bottle
label and carton has passed or it has been six months
(180 days) since you fi rst opened the bottle. It will help
to write the six month discard date on the label in the
area provided when you fi rst open the test strips or
control solution.
5.
Wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water
and dry them well.
Healthcare professionals or persons using this system on
multiple patients should follow the infection control pro-
cedure approved by their facility. All products or objects
which come in contact with human blood, even after
cleaning, should be handled as if capable of transmitting
viral diseases.
