AlphaTRAK® Control Solution is a red liquid that contains a certain amount of glucose designed to perform a control test for the AlphaTRAK® 2 Meter.
The control solution is used for practice testing without having to use animal blood, as well as confirm that the meter and test strips are working properly.
Apply and hold control solution to one sample area of the test strip until you see short lines moving clockwise or you hear a beep. Compare the results to the appropriate range or error message, and proceed as necessary. Control solution results are accurate only between 59° to 104° F. Discard solution bottle 3 months after opening or on expiration date.
Only use this control solution with the AlphaTRAK® 2 meter. Replace cap securely on the bottle immediately after use. Do not add water or other liquids to this solution. Do not use past expiration date. Do not use the control solution range for actual animal blood testing.
