How to perform a test with the new cassette.
You may have learned that you should hold your meter vertically during blood application. Now, with the new guidance tabs, just hold the meter in a way that lets you see the test area when applying blood. Place your finger gently on the guidance tabs so that the drop of blood comes into contact with the centre of the test area. That’s it!
Is there anything else I need to know?
The guidance tabs can only be used for taking a blood sample from the fingertips. They are not designed for taking a blood sample from other sites (AST).
