Start with the meter off. If you have turned the meter on to change settings or review past results, turn it off. Remove a test strip from its vial. With clean, dry hands, you may touch the test strip anywhere on its surface. Do not bend, cut, or modify the test strip in any way. Use each test strip immediately after removing it from the vial.
Insert the test strip into the test port. Make sure the 3 contact bars are facing you. Push the test strip in as far as it will go. Do not bend the test strip.
CAUTION: OneTouch® Ultra® Blue Test Strips are for single use only. Never reuse a test strip that has had either blood or control solution applied to it.
