Loading proceeded without a hitch. Easy To Install,Fast,Quiet It is a good one if you use it w/ only Windows. But if you want to use both MAC & Windows it gets kinda difficult.

Applying blood and reading results
Once you have a blood sample and your meter shows the APPLY BLOOD screen, you are ready to obtain a blood glucose result. If your meter does not show the APPLY BLOOD screen, remove the unused test strip and re-start the test process. See page 10. 1. Prepare to apply the sample The drop of blood should be next to the top edge of the test strip. Blood should not be applied to the flat face of the test strip. When applying a drop of blood from your forearm or palm, keep your palm or forearm steady and bring the top edge of the test strip to the drop of blood with your other hand.
Customer Service 227-8862 25

Page 26

2. Apply the sample Touch and hold the drop of blood to the narrow channel in the top edge of the test strip. Blood will be drawn into the strip. Keep holding the drop of blood to the top edge of the test strip until the confirmation window is full. Applying blood and reading results
NOTE: Do not smear or scrape the drop of blood with the test strip. Do not press the test strip too firmly against your puncture site. Do not apply more blood to the test strip after you have moved the drop of blood away. Do not move the test strip in the meter during a test.
CAUTION: You may get an ERROR 5 message or an inaccurate result if the blood sample does not fill the confirmation window completely. See page 58. Discard the strip and re-start the test process.
26 Customer Service 227-8862

Page 27

3. Read your result When the meter detects blood in the test strip, it begins to count down from 5 to 1. Then, your blood glucose level appears on the display, along with the unit of measure, and the date and time of the test. Blood glucose results are automatically stored in the meters memory.
WARNING: If mg/dL does not appear with the test result, call Customer Service. Use of the wrong unit of measure may cause you to misinterpret your blood glucose level, and may lead to incorrect treatment. CAUTION: If you test at the low end of the operating range (43F) and
your glucose is high (over 180 mg/dL), the reading on your meter may be lower than your actual glucose. In this situation, repeat the test in a warmer environment with a new test strip as soon as possible. Error messages If you get an ERROR message on your screen rather than a result, see pages 5359.

Customer Service 227-8862 27

Page 28

Unexpected test results Refer to these cautions whenever your test results are lower than,
higher than, or not what you expect.
CAUTION: Dehydration and low glucose results
Applying blood and reading results You may get false low glucose results if you are severely dehydrated. If you think you are severely dehydrated, contact your healthcare professional immediately.
CAUTION: Low glucose results
If your test result is lower than 70 mg/dL or is shown as LOW GLUCOSE, it may mean hypoglycemia (low blood glucose). This may require immediate treatment according to your healthcare professionals recommendations. Although this result could be due to a test error, it is safer to treat first, then do another test.

Page 29

CAUTION: High glucose results
If your test result is higher than 180 mg/dL, it may mean hyperglycemia (high blood glucose). If you are uncertain about this test result, consider re-testing. Your healthcare professional can work with you to decide what actions, if any, you should take if your results are higher than 180 mg/dL. If your meter displays HIGH GLUCOSE, you may have a very high blood glucose level (severe hyperglycemia) exceeding 600 mg/dL. Re-check your glucose level. If the result is HIGH GLUCOSE again, this may indicate a severe problem with your blood glucose control and it is important you obtain and follow instructions from your healthcare professional without delay.
CAUTION: Repeated unexpected glucose results
If you continue to get unexpected results, check your system with control solution. See Control solution testing, pages 4246. If you are experiencing symptoms that are not consistent with your blood glucose results and you have followed all instructions in this booklet, call your healthcare professional. Never ignore symptoms or make significant changes to your diabetes control program without speaking to your healthcare professional.
CAUTION: Unusual red blood cell count
A hematocrit (percentage of your blood that is red blood cells) that is either very high (above 55%) or very low (below 30%) can cause false results.

Removing the used lancet If you would like to cover the exposed lancet tip, remove the sampler cap by twisting it off. Then, place the lancet protective disk on a hard surface. Push the lancet tip into the disk. To eject the lancet, point the OneTouch UltraSoft Blood Sampler down and away from you. Push the release button to ensure that the sampler is not cocked. Push forward on the ejection/cocking control and the lancet will come out. Pull the ejection/cocking control to the middle position. Replace the cap.

Detailed information about your system
Comparing meter and laboratory results Test results with the OneTouch Ultra 2 Meter are plasma-calibrated. This helps you and your healthcare professional to compare your meter results with laboratory tests. If you have been using another type of meterone that provides whole-blood-calibrated resultsyou may notice that your test results with the OneTouch Ultra 2 Meter are approximately 12% higher. OneTouch Ultra 2 Meter test results and laboratory test results both are expressed in plasma-equivalent units. However, your meter result may differ from your laboratory result due to normal variation. Meter results can be affected by factors and conditions that do not affect laboratory results in the same way. Your OneTouch Ultra 2 Meter glucose value is considered accurate when it is within 20% of the laboratory measurement. There are some specific situations that could cause a difference of more than 20%: You have eaten recently. The blood glucose level from blood obtained from a fingertip can be up to 70 mg/dL higher than blood drawn from a vein (venous sample) used for a lab test.1
Sacks, D.B.: "Carbohydrates." Burtis, C.A., and Ashwood, E.R. (ed.), Tietz Textbook of Clinical Chemistry. Philadelphia: W.B. Saunders Company (1994), 959.

Page 61

Your hematocrit (percentage of your blood that is red blood cells)
is high (above 55%) or low (below 30%).
You are severely dehydrated. You tested at a temperature near the low end of the operating
range (43F ) and you get a high glucose result (i.e., greater than 180 mg/dL). In this situation, repeat the test in a warmer environment with a new test strip as soon as possible. For accuracy and precision data and for important information on limitations, see the insert that comes with your test strips. To maximize your chances of an accurate comparison between meter and laboratory results, follow a few basic guidelines: Before going to the lab Perform a control solution test to make sure the meter is working properly. Do not eat for at least eight hours before you test your blood. Take your meter with you to the lab. While at the lab Conduct your meter test within 15 minutes of the lab test. Use only fresh, capillary blood obtained from the fingertip. Follow all instructions in this owners booklet for performing a blood glucose test with your meter.

Before you begin Before using this product to test your blood glucose, carefully read this booklet and the inserts that come with the OneTouch Ultra Test Strips and OneTouch Ultra Control Solution. Take note of warnings and cautions throughout this booklet, which are identified with. Many people find it helpful to practice the test with control solution before testing with blood for the first time. See pages 3236 in the Control solution testing section. Intended use The OneTouch UltraMini Blood Glucose Monitoring System is intended to be used for the quantitative measurement of glucose (sugar) in fresh capillary whole blood. The OneTouch UltraMini System is intended for self-testing outside the body (in vitro diagnostic use) by people with diabetes at home and by health care professionals in a clinical setting as an aid to monitor the effectiveness of diabetes control. It should not be used for the diagnosis of diabetes or for testing newborns. Test principle Glucose in the blood sample mixes with special chemicals in the test strip and a small electric current is produced. The strength of this current changes with the amount of glucose in the blood sample. Your meter measures the current, calculates your blood glucose level, displays the result, and stores it in its memory.

Starting the test process
Have these things ready when you test your blood glucose level: OneTouch UltraMini Meter OneTouch Ultra Test Strips Lancing device Sterile lancets with protective disks OneTouch Ultra Control Solution
CAUTION: If you cannot test due to a problem with
your testing supplies, contact your health care professional or LifeScan Customer Service at 227-8862. Failure to test could delay treatment decisions and lead to a serious medical condition.
NOTE: Use only OneTouch Ultra Test Strips with your OneTouch UltraMini Meter. Make sure your meter and test strips are about the same temperature before you test. Testing must be done within the operating temperature range (43111F). For the most accurate results, try to test as close to room temperature (6877F) as you can. You can perform a blood glucose test while your OneTouch UltraMini Meter is inside its case.

Check the code on the test strip vial before inserting the test strip Code numbers are used to calibrate your meter with the test strips you are using to obtain accurate test results. You must code the meter before using it for the first time and then every time you change to another vial of test strips.

Page 8

CAUTION: The test strip vial contains drying agents that are harmful if inhaled or swallowed and may cause skin or eye irritation. Step 2
Insert a test strip to turn on the meter Start with the meter off. If you have turned the meter on to change settings or review past results, turn it off. Remove a test strip from its vial. With clean, dry hands, you may touch the test strip anywhere on its surface. Do Not bend, cut or modify the test strips in any way. Use each test strip immediately after removing it from the vial. Hold the meter as shown and insert the test strip into the test port. Make sure the three contact bars are facing you. Push the test strip in as far as it will go. Do Not bend the test strip.
CAUTION: OneTouch Ultra Test Strips are for single use only. Never
re-use a test strip that had either blood or control solution applied to it.
After the start-up test screen appears, the meter will display the code from your last test. If a constant and a flashing appear instead of a code number, such as when you are first using the meter, follow the 8 instructions on the next page to change to a numerical code.

Page 9

Match the code on the meter with the code on the test strip vial If the code on the meter does not match the code on the test strip vial, press or to match the code number on the test strip vial. The new code number will flash on the display for three seconds, and then stay constant for three seconds. The display will advance to the screen with the flashing blood drop icon R. If the codes already match, wait three seconds. The display will advance to the screen with the flashing blood drop icon R. The meter is now ready to perform a blood glucose test. NOTE: If the screen with the flashing blood drop icon R appears before you are sure the codes match, remove the test strip, wait until the meter turns off, then re-start from step 1, see page 7.
If you press by mistake so that the control solution test symbol CtL appears on the display, press again to change it back to the screen with the flashing blood drop icon R.

CAUTION: Matching the code on the meter and the code on the test strip vial is essential to obtain accurate results. Each time you test, check to make sure the code numbers match.

CAUTION: To reduce the chance of infection:
Make sure to wash the puncture site with soap and water before sampling. Never share a lancet or a lancing device with anyone. Always use a new, sterile lancetlancets are for single use only. Keep your meter and lancing device clean. See page 38.

Page 11

Choosing the right sampling site at the right time The OneTouch UltraMini Meter allows you to sample blood from your fingertip, forearm or palm. Forearm and palm sampling is also referred to as alternate site testing (AST). At times, results obtained at the forearm or palm may be different from a fingertip measurement. Talk to your health care professional before you begin using your forearm or palm for sampling.
If you are testing: Use blood sample from your:

Getting a blood sample

Routinely before meals Prior to or more than two hours after: a meal a rapid-acting insulin injection or insulin pump bolus exercise When your blood glucose is changing rapidly, such as: within two hours after a meal within two hours after a rapid-acting insulin injection or insulin pump bolus, or during or within two hours after exercise When you are concerned about the possibility of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
Fingertip, forearm, or palm

Fingertip

Page 12
CAUTION: Do Not test on your forearm or palm when:
You think your blood glucose is rapidly falling, such as within two hours of exercise or a rapid-acting insulin injection or insulin pump bolus. Testing with a fingertip sample may identify hypoglycemia or an insulin reaction sooner than testing with a forearm or palm sample. It has been less than two hours after a meal, a rapid-acting insulin injection or insulin pump bolus, physical exercise, or you think your glucose level is changing rapidly. You are concerned about the possibility of hypoglycemia or an insulin reaction, such as when driving a car. This is especially important if you suffer from hypoglycemia unawareness (lack of symptoms to indicate an insulin reaction).
Remember: Consult with your health care professional before using your forearm or palm for testing.

Page 17

Forearm sampling Choose a fleshy area of the forearm away from bone, visible veins and hair. Sometimes there is less blood flow to the forearm than to the fingertips. To help you get a large enough drop of blood, you may gently massage or apply warmth to the site to increase blood flow.

Forearm

Palm sampling Choose a fleshy area on the palm below your thumb or little pinky finger. Select a spot with no visible veins and away from deep lines, which may cause your blood sample to smear.

Page 18

Blue (or black) cap for fingertip sampling only
The OneTouch AST Clear Cap is used for forearm and palm sampling only. Replace the blue (or black) cap with the OneTouch AST Clear Cap.

Page 19

Install the OneTouch AST Clear Cap on the OneTouch Lancing Device by snapping it on
Adjust the depth setting You may have to adjust the OneTouch Lancing Device to a deeper setting to get a large enough drop of blood from your forearm or palm. Twist the OneTouch AST Clear Cap toward the larger numbers to increase the depth.

Page 20

Puncture your forearm or palm Firmly press and hold the lancing device against your forearm or palm for a few seconds. Wait until the skin surface under the OneTouch AST Clear Cap changes color (as blood collects beneath the skin). This tells you there is enough blood flow for a good sample. Then press the release button while continuing to apply pressure. Keep holding the lancing device against your skin until a round drop of blood forms under the cap. When sampling blood from your forearm or palm, make sure the drop of blood is of at least one microliter ( actual size) before you release pressure and remove the lancing device.
Remove the OneTouch Lancing Device Carefully lift the lancing device away from your skin. Do Not smear the blood sample.

Page 21

NOTE: You may need to wait a little longer to get a large enough drop of blood from the forearm or palm. Do Not squeeze the site excessively. If the sample drop of blood runs or spreads due to contact with hair or with a line in your palm, Do Not use that sample. Try puncturing again in a smoother area. Remember: You may have to adjust the lancing device to a deeper setting to get a large enough drop of blood ( actual size).

Page 22

Applying blood and reading results
Once you have a blood sample and your meter shows the screen with the flashing blood drop icon R, you are ready to obtain a blood glucose result. If your meter does not show the screen with the flashing blood drop icon R, remove the unused test strip and re-start the test process. See page 7.
Prepare to apply the sample Keeping your finger extended and steady, move the meter and test strip toward the blood drop.

CAUTION: Low glucose results
If your test result is lower than 70 mg/dL or is shown as LO, it may mean hypoglycemia (low blood glucose). This may require immediate treatment according to your health care professionals recommendations. Although this result could be due to a test error, it is safer to treat first, then do another test.

Page 27

CAUTION: High glucose results
If your test result is higher than 180 mg/dL, it may mean hyperglycemia (high blood glucose). If you are uncertain about this test result, consider re-testing. Your health care professional can work with you to determine what actions, if any, you should take if your results are higher than 180 mg/dL. If your meter displays HI, you may have a very high blood glucose level (severe hyperglycemia) exceeding 600 mg/dL. Re-check your glucose level. If the result is HI again, this may indicate a severe problem with your blood glucose control and it is important you obtain and follow instructions from your health care professional without delay.
CAUTION: Repeated unexpected glucose results
If you continue to get unexpected results, check your system with control solution. See Control solution testing, pages 3236. If you are experiencing symptoms that are not consistent with your blood glucose results and you have followed all instructions in this booklet, call your health care professional. Never ignore symptoms or make significant changes to your diabetes control program without speaking to your health care professional.
CAUTION: Unusual red blood cell count
A hematocrit (percentage of your blood that is red blood cells) that is either very high (above 55%) or very low (below 30%) can cause false results.

Page 28

After getting a result
Once you have read your result, you may: Review your meter memory by pressing to enter memory mode, see page 29, or Turn the meter off by removing the test strip. Removing the used lancet Remove the lancing device cap by snapping it off. Cover the exposed lancet tip before removing the lancet. Place the lancet protective disk on a hard surface. Push the lancet tip into the disk. Remove the lancet and place it in a container for sharp objects. Replace the cap. Disposing of the used lancet and test strip It is important to discard the used lancet carefully after each use to avoid unintended lancet stick injuries. Used test strips and lancets may be considered biohazardous waste in your area. Be sure to follow your local regulations for proper disposal.

Page 31

Get ready to transfer readings Connect the OneTouch Interface Cable to the COM or USB port on your computer. Make sure the meter is turned off. If you insert the cable while the meter is already on, the meter will not respond to computer commands. Then connect the other end of the OneTouch Interface Cable to the meter data port.

Detailed information about your system
Comparing meter and laboratory results Test results with the OneTouch UltraMini Meter are plasma-calibrated. This helps you and your health care professional to compare your meter results with laboratory tests. If you have been using another type of meterone that provides whole-blood-calibrated resultsyou may notice that your test results with the OneTouch UltraMini Meter are approximately 12% higher. OneTouch UltraMini Meter test results and laboratory test results both are expressed in plasma-equivalent units. However, your meter result may differ from your laboratory result due to normal variation. Meter results can be affected by factors and conditions that do not affect laboratory results in the same way. Your OneTouch UltraMini Meter glucose value is considered accurate when it is within 20% of the laboratory measurement. There are some specific situations that could cause a difference of more than 20%: You have eaten recently. The blood glucose level from a finger stick can be up to 70 mg/dL higher than blood drawn from a vein (venous sample) used for a lab test.1

Your hematocrit (percentage of blood that is red blood cells) is high (above 55%) or low (below 30%). You are suffering from severe dehydration. You tested at a temperature near the low end of the operating range (43F) and you get a high glucose result (i.e., greater than 180 mg/dL). In this situation, repeat the test in a warmer environment with a new test strip as soon as possible.
For accuracy and precision data and for important information on limitations, see the insert that comes with your test strips. To maximize your chances of an accurate comparison between meter and laboratory results, follow a few basic guidelines: Before going to the lab Perform a control solution test to make sure the meter is working properly. Do Not eat for at least eight hours before you test your blood. Take your meter with you to the lab. While at the lab Conduct your meter test within 15 minutes of the lab test. Use only fresh, capillary blood obtained from the fingertip. Follow all instructions in this owners booklet for performing a blood glucose test with your meter.
