INTRODUCTION OF THE SYSTEM
The system is intended for use outside the body (in vitro diagnostic use).
It should be used only for testing glucose (sugar) and only with fresh capillary
whole blood samples taken from the finger and the alternative sites including the palm,
the forearm, the upper arm, the calf and the thigh. The system is intended for home use and in clinical settings.
It should not be used for the diagnosis of diabetes or for the testing of newborns.
Principle of Measurement
The test is based on the measurement of electrical current generated by the reaction of glucose with the reagent of the strip.
The meter measures the current and displays the corresponding blood glucose level.
The strength of the current produced by the reaction depends on the amount of glucose in the blood sample.
Contents of the System
The system should be used with three main products: the blood glucose meter, test strips, and a control solution.
These products have been designed, tested, and proven to work together as a system to produce accurate blood glucose test results.

Appearance and Key Function of the Meter
Meter Display Segments
The test slot is where you insert the test strip for testing. The meter will turn on automatically when you insert a test strip.
Your test results are displayed here. The large, easy-to-read display guides you through the test using symbols and simple messages.
The main button in front of the meter is used to set up the meter, enter the memory mode, change the value of “date time”, unit setting, memory deleting and turn the meter on and off.
TALKING SYMBOL -
Indicates that the meter contains speaking function.
Located at the side, is for cable connection
SET BUTTON (in the back)
Set the date, time and unit, located in the battery compartment.
Test Strip Symbol
Appears when the meter is on.
Blood Drop Symbol
This symbol tells you when to apply the sample.
Appears with ambient temperature after inserting a test strip.
Face Symbol low/high
Both are result indicators.
Face low symbol appears when test result is between 1.1 to 3.8 mmol/L.
Face high symbol appears when test result is greater than 6.6 mmol/L.
CTL Symbol CTL
Appears when performing a control solution test and indicates that the result will not be stored in the memory.
Indicates that the displayed test result is an average.
Appears when you review the memory.
Test Result Area
Test results are displayed here.
Indicates speaking function is on/off.
Appears when the battery is low.
Measurement unit mmol/L
Appears with the test result in mmol/L.
Ketone Warning KETONE?
Appears when the test result is equal or higher than 13.3mmoI/L.
Appears when the test result is within reference range.
When the talking symbol
is on the meter, it means that the meter provides speaking function.
It “speaks” step by step and leads you through a blood glucose test.
The following table tells you when and what the meter “speaks”.

|When meter is turned on.
||Welcome music plays.
"Thank you for using this product.
Please relax during measurement."
|When room temperature is detected.
||"The room temperature is (number)
degree Celsius/ Fahrenheit."
|When room temperature is outside operating range.
||"Room temperature is out of range,
thus unable to measure."
|When the meter is ready to test.
( "" symbol appears on display)
|"Please apply blood into the strip."
|When the test is completed.
(The result appears on display).
|"Your blood glucose is (number)
Millimole per Liter"
|When the test result is outside
measurement range, which is 1.1
to 33.3 mmol/L.
|"The blood glucose is out of range,
thus unable to measure."
Your system measures the amount of sugar (glucose) in whole blood.
Blood is applied to the absorbent hole of the test strip and is automatically drawn into
the reaction cell where the reaction takes place.
The test strip consists of the following parts:
Insert this end of the test strip into the meter.
Push it in firmly until it will go no further.
Test Strip Handle
Hold this part to insert the test strip into the slot.
This is where you confirm if enough blood has been applied to the absorbent hole of the strip.
Apply a drop of blood here. The blood will be drawn automatically.
See pages 27~33 (in your user manual), Testing Your Blood, for complete instructions.
