Microdot+ test strips

The Microdot+ is one of a number of blood glucose meters that GPs love as it is proven to be an accurate meter as well as one which takes low cost blood glucose test strips.

The meter takes a relatively long time, by modern standards, to produce a result (10 seconds), and only provides an average of 14 days.

However, the meter does provide the basic features needed for regularly testing and recording blood glucose results.

The meter includes a test strip eject button to prevent handling the blood from the end of the used test strip and there are 4 alarms which can be set as reminders to do blood glucose tests.

The Microdot+ supports alternate site testing and meets the ISO standards for blood glucose meter accuracy
