Freestyle Lite Test Strips Overview
Freestyle Lite Test Strips by Abbott Diabetes Care were designed for fast, simple blood glucose testing. They are intended for use with the Freestyle Lite and Freestyle Freedom Lite blood glucose monitors. They provide rapid, reliable results in just 5 seconds with the world's smallest necessary sample size, just 0.3 microliters — 1/3 of the sample size needed by leading competitors. They feature no-coding technology, removing an extra step of the glucose test, and reinforcing confidence in results. An estimated 1 in 6 people with diabetes (16%) miscode when using manually-coded glucose test strips and meters — it is even common among people with training. Using a no-coding device removes the worry and uncertainty of inaccurate results, which greatly reduces the risk of calculating the wrong insulin dose after a test. Freestyle Lite Diabetic Test Strips also minimize interference from 22 common substances found in the blood that can jeopardize accurate test results. In the event of a misapplication, Freestyle Lite Blood Glucose Test Strips allow reapplication for up to 60 seconds, minimizing wasted test strips and saving the user money. For an integrated experience, use the Freestyle Unistik 2 Lancet Device when performing blood glucose tests.
