How it works
The CentriVet Blood Ketone Test Strips are thin strips with a chemical reagent system which work with the CentriVet GK Blood Glucose & Ketone Meter to measure the blood β-Ketone (beta-hydroxybutyrate) concentration in whole blood. Blood is applied to the end tip of the test strip, and then automatically absorbed into the reaction cell where the reaction takes place. A transient electrical current is formed during the reaction and the blood β-Ketone 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. For animal use. Do not use CentriVet Blood Ketone Test Strips with human blood. 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 Ketone Test Strips are used by people at home and by veterinary professionals to test for the quantitative measurement of β-Ketone in capillary whole blood only from an animal. Veterinary professionals may also test venous blood samples. Results from the CentriVet GK Blood Glucose and Ketone Monitoring System should be analyzed by your animal’s veterinarian.
