The Embrace Control Solution Low is used to ensure that your Embrace Blood Glucose Meter and test strips are working properly.
Control solution contains a known amount of glucose that reacts with test strips. Rather than using blood, which may vary greatly, control solution tests should be performed to confirm that the meter is reporting the expected control solution range that is printed on the test strip vial.
Contains 1 bottle of Embrace Control Solution, Low.
Some reasons to perform a control solution test:
Each time a new vial of test strips is opened
If the meter is reporting abnormally high or low results
If your meter or strips are damaged or left in hazardous conditions (heat or cold)
Glucose control solutions should only be used for 90 days after opening the bottle.
