Product Information

Use AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution to check the AlphaTRAK and AlphaTRAK 2 Meter and Test Strips in order to make sure they are functioning correctly. Control solution is used in many situations and helps to ensure that the most accurate blood sugar (glucose) readings are obtained in your diabetic pet.

What is the AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution? AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution is an aqueous solution containing a fixed amount of glucose plus other minor ingredients. It is used along with the AlphaTRAK Glucose Monitoring Kit including glucometer and test strips. Control solution is used to run periodic control test to make sure that your glucose monitoring equipment is working properly and to make sure that the actual blood glucose (sugar) results you obtain from your diabetic pet are as accurate as possible. Each package contains 2 bottles (4 ml) of control solution.

What are the benefits?

1. Control tests are easy to run.
2. Works to ensure that equipment is working properly and helps to make sure that regular blood glucose (sugar) readings are accurate and reliable.
3. Control solution is compatible with AlphaTRAK and AlphaTRAK 2 Meters.

Who is it for: AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution is used with the AlphaTRAK and AlphaTRAK 2 Meter and Test Strips in order to monitor blood sugar (glucose) levels specifically in diabetic dogs and cats. It should not be used to test blood sugar (glucose) in humans with diabetes.

How does it work? Control testing using AlphaTRAK 2 Control Solution should be performed: before you run the first test once receiving your meter, before doing a blood test, when you begin using a new vial of test strips, if test strips have not been tightly sealed in their original container, when you suspect that the meter or test strips are not generating an accurate results, when you question the accuracy of your meter or test strips, or anytime you question the blood glucose (sugar) reading that is displayed. A control test should also be run If you drop the meter or as directed by your veterinarian. Specific instructions on how to run a control test are listed in your user manual. A control test is run using the same procedures as with a drop of blood. First, insert a test strip into the meter and the meter should automatically turn on. Make sure that your meter is set up properly according to the instructions in the user manual. Shake solution well and gently invert the control solution bottle . Wipe the tip with tissue and discard the first two drops. Touch one edge of the test strip to the control solution 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 the Troubleshooting section of your manual for further instructions. Wait for a result. This should only take a few seconds. The reading should match the glucose value range that is listed on the test strip vial if the meter and strips are working correctly.

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

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.
