Glucose Test Strips

These seemingly insignificant strips of plastic are the mainstay of blood glucose testing. It aids patients in monitoring and controlling their diabetes. Glucose test strips are an important component of glucose meters: blood is placed on the strip and the meter provides a reading. Although not commonly used these days, there are also diabetic test strips that don’t require a glucose meter. Using this type of strip, blood is placed on the active part and then wiped off after a few seconds. The reagent will cause the strip to change color and the result will be matched on a color chart provided. These glucose test strips are cheaper but are less accurate.
