Caring for Your Meter

Avoid getting dirt, dust, blood, control solution, water, or any other liquid in the meter’s test strip and data ports.

Important: Never immerse the meter in water or any other liquid. This may cause inaccurate reading or meter malfunction.

Do not try to clean the strip or data ports.
Do not pour liquid into the strip port, data port or buttons.
Do not place your meter in water or any other bath.

Clean the outside of the meter using a cloth dampened with one of the following:

  • Mild detergent/mild soap and water.
  • 70% isopropyl alcohol.
  • A mix of one part household bleach, nine parts water.
