Microdot Test Strips, 50 Strips/Bottle
Use with Microdot Xtra Meters Only
Each Microdot® strip contains the enzyme glucose dehydrogenase (Bacillus Sp.) = 1 IU and other ingredients (mediator, NAD, lysing agents etc.) = 200 µg.
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 your level of blood glucose.
- The performance of Microdot® Test Strips has been evaluated both in laboratory and in clinical tests.
- Range: measurement range of the microdot® System is 1.2 to 29.2 mg/dL.
- Accuracy: The accuracy of the Microdot® System was assessed by comparing blood glucose results obtained by 102 patients at one clinical centre with those obtained using a YSI 2300 laboratory Instrument.
- Clark error grid analysis: 98% A region; 2 % B region Correlation coefficient R = 0.977.
- Range tested 45 to 472 mg/dL (2.5 to 26.2 mmol/L).
- Slope 0.973 y-Intercept 3.96 mg/dL (0.22 mmol/L).
- This means that the microdot® system compared well to a laboratory method.
(20 replicates in 1 day)
This means that the strip to strip variation was not greater than 5.6%.
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.
