This is an aqueous glucose solution that contains small amounts of non-reactive ingredients and food coloring. It is used to verify that the iPet Glucose Monitoring System (Glucose Meter and Test Strips) is running properly. The control solution is necessary to make sure accurate and reliable blood sugar (glucose) readings are continuously obtained. Each package comes with 2 bottles of control solution. iPet Control Solution is used with the iPet Glucose Monitoring Kit that is used specifically to monitor blood sugar (glucose) levels in dogs and cats.
You should run a test using iPet Control Solution when the iPet Blood Glucose Monitoring system is being used for the first time or when you are using a new batch of test strips. Make sure you also perform a control solution test anytime you question the accuracy of the blood glucose (sugar) results you obtain.
Uses: iPet Control Solution is used in conjunction with the iPet Glucose Monitoring kit. It is used to verify the accuracy of the iPet Glucose Meter and iPet Glucose Test Strips. Control solution should be used when you are using the iPet Blood Glucose Monitoring Kit for the first time. It should also be used when you are using a new batch of test strips, anytime you question the performance of the meter of strips, or when your pet’s glucose (sugar) reading is higher or lower than what you expect it to be.
Storage: Store at 39-86 degrees Fahrenheit (4-30 degrees Celsius) away from children and pets. Control solution should be at precise room temperature immediately prior to use.
