How it works
The CentriVet Blood Glucose Test Strips are thin strips with a chemical reagent system which work with the CentriVet GK Blood Glucose & Ketone Meter to measure the glucose concentration in whole blood. Blood is applied to the end tip of the test strip, then automatically absorbed into the reaction cell where the reaction takes place. A transient electrical current is formed during the reaction and the blood glucose concentration is calculated based on the electrical current detected by the meter, then the result is shown on the meter display. The meters are calibrated to display plasma equivalent results.
For in vitro diagnostic use. The CentriVet Blood Glucose Test Strips can be used to test blood glucose levels in animals. The CentriVet GK Blood Glucose and Ketone Monitoring System should be used by a veterinary professional or under the guidance of a veterinary professional. CentriVet™ Glucose Test Strips are used by people at home and by veterinary professionals to test for the quantitative measurement of glucose in capillary whole blood from an animal. It is also used as an aid in monitoring the effectiveness of diabetes control programs. Professionals may also test venous and arterial blood samples. Results from the CentriVet™ GK Blood Glucose and Ketone Monitoring System should be analyzed by your animal’s veterinarian.
