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.
