Microdot® Test Strips are used to measure glucose (sugar) in capillary whole blood outside of the body (in-vitro diagnostic use). Use Microdot® Test Strips only with the Microdot® Blood Glucose Test System. Microdot® Test Strips are plasma calibrated to allow easy comparison of results with laboratory methods.
When blood is added to the Microdot® strip, the chemicals within the strip react to create a tiny electrical current. Your meter reads the current and displays the level of blood glucose.
