For a regular blood glucose measurement, it’s necessary to provide a significant supply of consumables, in particular, test strips. As a rule, there are a few test strips in the initial set for monitoring of glycemia, therefore it is important to take care to provide more so indicators are always available.
NEO test strips by NEW MED (Austria) are perfectly compatible with NEO blood glucose meter of the same manufacturer. Test strips are bundled in 50 pieces (2 vials per 25 pieces in each). The glucose measurement using NEO test strips is based on the enzymatic glucose oxidase method. This method is characterized by a special accuracy of the results obtained. Due to autocoding, the error of the data obtained with NEO test strips does not exceed 0.03%.
For the analysis, you need to use only 1 drop of fresh capillary blood. It can be taken from a finger, a forearm or even a palm (if you can not take blood from your finger). The range of hematocrit varies from 30 to 50 percent. The measurement range is of 1.1 to 33.3 mmol/l.
Storage period of test strips NEO after opening the vial #25 shall not exceed 6 months. After this period, the consumables should be disposed of. Since the glucose oxidase enzyme is sensitive to air oxygen, the results obtained using expired test strips may inaccurate.
Test strips NEO are disposable supplies for measuring blood glucose level. Re-use of them contradicts the hygiene and sanitation standards of the experiment.
