Specifications

Contains: One control solution bottle, 2.5 ml

Directions

Before you begin control solution testing with your Embrace blood glucose meter, check your bottle to determine whether it contains Low or High control solution. Based on this, your meter will need to be set to “L1” for Low or “L2” for High. Once this has been done, shake your control solution bottle and squeeze two drops of control solution onto a clean glass or plastic plate. Immediately put the cap back on the control solution bottle.

Then, take out a test strip and insert it into your meter. When the meter turns on, use the bottom or top button to set it to the correct setting, as detailed in the user manual. Place the tip of the test strip into the control solution. Compare your results to the control solution range that appears on your test strip vial; if it is out of range, consult your manual for troubleshooting.

Frequently Asked Questions

This solution allows you to test the accuracy of your Embrace-brand glucose meter. It contains a predetermined amount of glucose for your meter to measure.

You do. Meters should be tested every time you open a new test strip vial, if your meter’s results are unusually high or low, or if your meter/strips have been in potentially hazardous conditions.

You should not use control solution that has passed its expiration date or has been open for more than 90 days.
