When to perform a control solution test

The control solution test confirms that your Nova Max test strips and glucose monitor are working correctly. A control solution test is similar to a blood glucose test, except you use Nova Max Control Solution and not a blood sample.

According to Nova Max Blood Glucose Monitor Owner’s Guide you should run a control solution test using a Nova Max control solution:

  • When you first get your monitor and at least once a week thereafter
  • Each time you open and begin using a new vial of Nova Max test strips
  • If you leave the test strip vial cap open for any length of time
  • If the monitor is dropped, damaged, or exposed to liquids
  • If you think your test results are not accurate, or if your test results are not consistent with how you feel
  • To check the performance of the monitor and test strips
  • Nova Max High and Low Glucose Controls are also recommended as an additional quality control check for your blood glucose monitoring system
