ADVOCATE TEST STRIPS 50 COUNT BOX & 35 COUNT BOX
The Advocate test strips (or Advocate Redi-Code+ Blood Glucose Test Strips) are for use with the Advocate Redi-Code Plus glucose meter to quantitatively measure the glucose levels in fresh capillary whole blood samples. Advocate test strips are available in boxes of 50 count and 35 count.
Advocate test strips feature an easy to open flip top bottle with technology to keep test strips fresh for a longer period and to make usable for people of all ages. Advocate test strips are easy to use, require no coding and are alternate-site testing approved for maximum convenience.
The ADVOCATE Redi Code test strips are used for the accurate monitoring of blood glucose testing. The small blood samples required and the testing strip indicator window makes blood application extremely easy.

ALTERNATE SITE TESTING (AST)
According to the Advocate RediCode+ Speaking Meter User Manual, the Advocate test strip system allows you to test on areas other than your finger called Alternate Sites. These sites include the palm, the forearm, the upper-arm, the calf, or the thigh with the equivalent results to fingertip testing. The Alternate Site Testing can be only used during steady-state blood glucose monitoring. To learn more see Using Advocate Test Strips for Alternate Site Testing.
According to the Advocate RediCode+ Speaking Meter User Manual, Advocate Redi-Code+ blood glucose test is based on the quantitative measurement of glucose in whole blood. The blood sample is drawn into the tip of the Advocate test strips before testing. Glucose in the same mixes with special chemicals on the test test strips and a small electrical current is produced. The current is measured by the meter and the corresponding blood glucose level is displayed. The strength of the current produced by the reaction depends on the amount of glucose in the blood sample.
