The GlucoGorx® Self-Monitoring Blood Glucose Level Monitors work by testing a small sample of a person's blood for their blood sugar levels using a test strip and meter. To test your blood sugar levels you first collect a small blood sample with a test strip, usually a prick of the finger supplies enough blood for the test. You then insert the test strip into the meter. Your blood glucose level react with the chemicals on the test strip making the meter able to read them and then display your results on the easy to read large display monitor.
Based on a recent consumer study to evaluate the pain experienced during use, the GlucoGorx® lancing device has a less painful blood draw average.* Only 0.4µL of blood is needed to get an accurate reading in only 4 seconds.
