Testing Materials: 10-Test Disc (Disc contains ten test strips.) Normal Control (Included with some kits.) Microlet Adjustable ® Lancing Device and Lancet Important Information: Caution: Before using any product to test your blood glucose (sugar), read all instructions carefully and practice the test. A full display, as shown here, indicates that all characters in the display are working properly.
Everyday Use INSERTING A 10-TEST DISC: 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 up.
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 B Meter REEZE 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. Note: For testing sites other than ﬁngertips, see page 11. 2. Remove the endcap from the Ascensia™ Microlet ® Adjustable Lancing Device. (See Ascensia Microlet Device package insert for complete instructions.) 3.
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. Multiple Site Testing: Blood samples for glucose testing may be taken from sites other than your ﬁngertips.
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.
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 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.
Beyond Everyday Use RECALLING TEST RESULTS: Your Ascensia B Meter REEZE can store up to 100 test results in its memory. This makes it easy to see your earlier blood glucose test results. To view those results: 1. Open the Button Door. 2.
Viewing Your 14-Day Average Your Ascensia B Meter also REEZE keeps a 14-day average of your blood glucose results for you ). To see this average, simply follow these steps. 1. Open the Button Door and press the button. The meter will show you your last result.
SETTING THE TIME, DATE AND OTHER FEATURES: Helpful Hint: You may press the button at any time during setup to turn the meter off. Just remember to press the button ﬁrst to store your changes! Setting the Time 1. Open the Button Door. 2.
5. Press to select AM or PM. Press to accept and move on. Setting the Date Note: If you have just set the time, skip ahead to step 4. 1. Open the Button Door. 2. Press 3. Press until you see the “day”...
5. Press to change the month. Press to accept and move on. 6. Press to change the year. Press to accept and move on.
Setting Buzzer Level Your Ascensia B Meter has an easy-to-use volume REEZE control for the buzzer. Here are the three different buzzer levels: high Note: If you have just set the date, skip ahead to step 4. 1. Open the Button Door. 2.
Setting Units-of-Measure Important: Test results are shown in either mg/dL or mmol/L. The mg/dL results do not include a decimal point. The mmol/L results will always include a decimal point. 9 9 5 5 Example: 5 5 . . 3 3 Your Ascensia B Meter comes with the units-of-measure REEZE...
Setting Time Format (12- or 24-hour Clock) Your Ascensia B Meter will let you choose either a REEZE 12-hour ( ) or a 24-hour time setup ( Note: If you have just set the units-of-measure, skip ahead to step 4. 1.
Setting Date Format Your Ascensia B Meter will let you set the day and REEZE month option on your meter. You can choose to set it as “month/day” ( ) or as “day/month” ( Note: If you just set the time format, skip ahead to step 4. 1.
TRANSFER TEST RESULTS TO A COMPUTER: You can transfer test results from the Ascensia B Meter to REEZE a computer, where they can be summarized in a report with graphs and tables. To make use of this feature, you need Ascensia™ WinGlucofacts ®...
CLEANING YOUR METER: Your Ascensia B Meter can be cleaned REEZE using a moist (not wet) lint-free tissue with a mild detergent or disinfecting solution (1 part bleach mixed with 9 parts water). Wipe both the outside and inside of the meter, taking care to keep detergent or disinfecting solution from running down into the test strip slot.
REPLACING THE BATTERY: Your Ascensia B Meter uses one 3-volt lithium battery REEZE (CR2025). A battery will already be installed in the meter when you buy it. When it is time to put a new battery in the meter, the meter will tell you by displaying a ﬂashing battery on the screen.
To replace the battery, follow these steps: Note: A replacement battery (CR2025) can be found at most pharmacies (see pg. 46). 1. Hold the meter with the display screen down. Open the meter by pressing on the open latch and pulling up. 2.

PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS: Precision 1. Laboratory Precision: To assess the repeatability (within-run precision) of Ascensia™ B ™, 100 blood glucose REEZE readings (10 readings on each of 10 instruments) were obtained with venous blood specimens at ﬁve glucose concentrations. The following table summarizes the mean and pooled within-meter %CV at each level.
