Directions

To perform a control solution test with your Prodigy-brand blood glucose meter, wash your hands and insert a test strip into your meter. When the meter turns on, mark your test as a control solution test. Then, shake the bottle of control solution, squeeze the bottle to get a drop (which should be discarded onto tissue paper/cotton), and squeeze a second drop onto your fingertip.

Apply that drop to the test strip - if the results are within the range printed on the test strip vial, you’re good to go. If results are outside of this range, repeat the test. For multiple out-of-range results, check your blood glucose meter’s instruction manual.
