With the help of the control solution, check that your meter and test strips are working properly
Before using your OneTouch® meter to perform a control solution test, carefully read the Owner’s Booklet and inserts that come with the components of your system.
OneTouch® control solutions are used to check that the meter and test strips are working together properly and that the test is performing correctly.
We recommend that you perform a control solution test:
Whenever you open a new vial of test strips.
If you suspect that the meter or the test strips are not working properly.
If you have had repeated unexpected blood glucose results.
If you drop or damage the meter.
To perform a control solution test with your OneTouch Verio®, OneTouch Verio Flex® or OneTouch VerioIQ® meter, you need to use OneTouch Verio® control solutions (mid or high concentration).
To perform a control solution test with your OneTouch Select® Plus or OneTouch Select Plus Flex® meter, you need to use OneTouch Select® Plus control solutions (mid or high concentration).
After the OneTouch® control solution is applied to the test strip, the meter will count down until the test is complete.
The result from the test with the OneTouch® control solution should fall within the range printed on the test strip vial. If your control solution result falls outside the expected range, repeat the test with a new test strip.
Caution: If you continue to get control solution results that fall outside the range printed on the test strip vial, Do Not use the meter, test strips or control solution. Contact Customer Care.
