Handling: Open the vial only when taking out a test strip for use.
Close the vial lid tightly right away after removing a test strip. Use each test strip as soon as taken out of the vial.
Do Not use test strips from a vial that is damaged or left open to air.
Do Not get dirt, food or liquids on the test strip. The patient may touch the test strip anywhere on its surface with clean, dry hands.
Do Not bend, cut or alter test strips in any way.
Test strips are for single use only.
Never reuse a test strip that already has blood or control solution on it.
Make sure the meter and test strips are about the same temperature before testing.
Do Not test if there is condensation (water build-up) on the meter. Move the meter and test strips to a cool, dry spot and wait for the meter surface to dry before testing.
Apply only OneTouch Ultra Plus Control Solution or a blood sample to the test strip.
Do Not put the used test strip back in the vial after taking a test.
Used test strips may be considered biohazardous waste. Be sure to follow the healthcare professional's advice or local laws when throwing them away.
