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
