Blood Ketone Test Strips (25)
The On Call® Blood Ketone Test Strips are thin strips with a chemical reagent system that work with the On Call® GK Dual Blood Glucose & Ketone Monitor 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. Test strips are only to be used outside the body for testing purposes. On Call® Ketone Test Strips are used by people at home and by healthcare professionals for the quantitative measurement of β-Ketone in capillary whole blood only from the finger. Professionals may also test venous blood samples.
Each test strip contains the following reactive chemicals:
3-Hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase < 10 IU, Mediator < 100 μg, Buffer, Non-reactive Ingredient.
Each test strip vial contains a drying agent.
