Product Details

AlphaTRAK 2 Glucose Control Solution is used to perform quality control testing on the AlphaTRAK Blood Glucose Monitoring System. It allows you to make sure that your system is working correctly and it helps to verify that blood glucose (sugar) readings are accurate and reliable.

What is the AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution? AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution contains a fixed amount of glucose. It is used in conjunction with the AlphaTRAK Glucose Monitoring Kit including glucometer and test strips. Control solution helps ensure that your glucose meter is working properly so that each test result is accurate and dependable. Each package contains 2 bottles (4 ml) of control solution.

Formulated for: Dogs and cats. Not for human use.

How does this product work? Control solution tests should be performed under the following circumstances: when you first get the meter, before doing a blood test, when you begin using a new vial of test strips, if you have forgotten to close the test strip vial, when you suspect that the meter or test strips are not working properly, when the blood glucose test results are not consistent with how the animal is acting, or when you think the results are not accurate. A control test should also be run If you drop the meter or upon the advice of a veterinarian. For detailed instructions on how to run a control test, refer to your user manual. A control test is run using the same procedures as with a drop of blood. Insert a test strip into the meter and make sure your meter is set up and ready to use(see user manual). Shake well and gently invert the control solution bottle. Wipe the tip with tissue and discard the first two drops. Apply and hold control solution to 1 sample area of the test strip until you see short lines moving clockwise on the display or until you hear a beep. This indicates the test strip obtained enough control solution and the meter is processing. If the test does not start after applying the control solution, go to Troubleshooting section. The result appears on the display when the test is complete. The result should match the glucose value range listed on the bottle of test strips if the meter and test strips are working properly.

Uses: AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution is used with the AlphaTRAK and AlphaTRAK 2 Glucose Starter Kit (including test strips and glucometer). Control solution is used to run a test in order to verify the accuracy of the AlphaTRAK and AlphaTRAK2 Glucose Meter and Test Strips. A control test using control solution should be used in several situations. Tests should be run when you use the meter for the first time, before doing a blood test, when you begin using a new vial of test strips, if you have forgotten to close the test strip vial, when you suspect that the meter or test strips are not working properly, when the blood glucose test results are not consistent with how the animal is acting, or when you think the results are not accurate. A control test should also be run If you drop the meter or upon the advice of a veterinarian. After running a control test, replace the cap on the bottle and close it tightly.
  • Easy to use.
  • Helps to make sure each glucose(sugar) test result is reliable.
  • Compatible with AlphaTRAK and AlphaTRAK 2 Meters.

Precautions: Glucose values using the AlphaTRAK 2 Glucose Monitor should range from 20-500 mg/dL. If the control test is not within normal range, repeat the test and repeat the result. Errors can occur because you are using improper test procedure, if the cod on the meter does not match the code on the test strips, if test strips have been stored at improper temperature, or if test solution has expired or has been diluted. If a control test is still out of range after checking all of the above, contact the manufacturer and/or refer to the troubleshooting section of the manual. Use control solution for up to 3 months after opening or until the expiration date, whichever comes first. Do not dilute control solution. For external use only. Do not use internally. If control solution has been accidentally ingested, contact your physician or poison control immediately for further instructions. Do not use the AlphaTRAK 2 System in humans as it is specifically manufactured for use in diabetic dogs and cats. At home blood monitoring is not a substitution for regular veterinary care and should be used in conjunction with testing and treatment by your veterinarian in order to treat your diabetic pet as precisely as possible.

Storage: Store AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution at room temperature in a safe place out of reach from children and pets. Do not freeze.
