FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are 3rd-party diabetic test strips OK to use?

It is important to remember to make sure your test strips work correctly with your monitor. Check read all labeling to be certain that they are compatible.

Does it matter when my meter was made?

GenStrip50 with calibration codes 4, 10 and 13 are for use with OneTouch® Ultra®, Ultra®2 and UltraMini® Meters purchased before July 2010. Independent studies have proven that there is no difference in performance or technology between meters made before or after 2010. 

Will my Ultra® meter need special calibration to use GenStrip50 test strips?

No. OneTouch Ultra®, Ultra2®, and UltraMini® meters sold in the US have coding capability. Code numbers are used to calibrate your meter with the test strips you are using to obtain accurate test results.You must code every Ultra meter before using it for the first time and then every time you change to another vial of test strips. 

Coding is easy! Start with the meter off. With clean dry hands, remove a GenStrip50 Test strip from the vial. Insert the test strip into the test port. Make sure the three contact bars and meter are facing you. Push the test strip in as far as it will go. Do Not bend the test strip. 

After the start-up test screen appears, the meter will display the code from your last test. If the codes already match, wait three seconds. If the code on the meter does not match the code on the test strip vial, press ▲ or ▼ to match the code number on the test strip vial. Wait approximately 3 seconds. The display will advance to the screen with the flashing blood drop icon. The meter is now ready to perform a blood glucose test.
