Blood application onto the middle of the test pad. The test strip (and its components) has the function to spread the blood above the test area in a quick and hygienic way
Blood can be applied to an already inserted test strip, or a test strip outside the meter. Outside of the meter dosing is helpful to minimise the risk of contamination when a meter has multiple users (e.g. in a hospital) and, in case of alternative site testing, to facilitate blood application
Additional blood can be added to the test strip within 10 seconds after applying the first drop (applies for inside mode)
Plausibility check option with 5 colour blocks on the test strip vial
20 to 55 % (within-meter mode), 20 to 70 % (outside-meter mode)
