2.2   Biosensor Strips - to be read only with the appropriate meter
      NB These meters are not available on prescription.

      Biosensor strips have a target area for the blood sample at one end impregnated with glucose
      oxidase. The test strip is inserted into the meter and when the blood sample is applied to the target
      area a current is produced proportionate to the concentration of blood glucose in the sample.
      NB Exactech, MediSense G2 and MediSense Optium strips are not interchangeable

      2.2.1 Advantage Plus                                              container of 50 ............... 15.44
      Strip with an arc-shaped indentation along one side for easy sample application. The test area is
      located in the centre of the strip, covered by a translucent laminate. Blood is drawn into the test area
      from the curved edge of the strip by capillary action and glucose is converted by glucose
      dehydrogenase in a two-step bi-amperometric process. The small current produced is read by the
      meter and converted to a glucose concentration. The strip gives readings in the range 0.6-
      33.3mmol/l. The strips cannot be visually read and the use of an Advantage meter is essential.

Part II - Appendix

     Notes on Blood Glucose Testing
1.   Blood glucose testing strips (BGTS) are primarily intended for insulin-dependent diabetics who will
     normally have received consultant advice on their condition. One pack (50 strips) would normally be
     sufficient for 2 months. All strips should be kept in their original container and should not be cut or
     slit. Because of the differences in colour change in colorimetric types, strips are not
     interchangeable.
     Due regard should be given to the manufacturer's instructions and to the recommendation
     on storage and period of use after first opening.

2.   Misleading results, which could be hazardous if acted upon, might arise if users are inadequately
     trained. It is therefore essential that patients should receive appropriate training before attempting to
     use BGTS for monitoring their blood glucose. This instruction should be given by health care
     professionals who are trained in the use of the product. It should be noted that there are small
     variations in technique between different makes. Some technical factors are given in paragraph 5
     below.

3.   General practitioners should be aware that defects in colour vision may occur in diabetes and certain
     BGT strips should not be prescribed for such patients for visual use. (see outline of colour changes
     described in each entry on the foregoing pages).

4.   Reagent Strips are subject to the following limitations:

     Fluoride Specimen:       The strips are not to be used with blood specimens preserved with fluoride.

     Serum and Plasma:        The strips are not designed for use with serum or plasma.

     Haematocrit:             Extremes in haematocrit levels can affect test results:


     Due regard should be given to the manufacturer’s product specifications.

5.   Disposal of Lancets. Patients should be reminded of the need to exercise caution when disposing of
     used lancets. These should be placed in a tin or other strong container before disposal. (The
     needle clipping device listed in Part III is not generally suitable for use with lancets).

     As with single-use syringes, the arrangements outlined above are not suitable for patients where
     there is a risk of infection being transmitted. General Practitioners are similarly advised that blood
     lancets should only be prescribed for patients who are carriers of infectious diseases where suitable
     arrangements have been made for the disposal of the used articles as contaminated waste. Medical
     Officers for environmental health can advise on these arrangements.
