The accutrend GC kit is a tool used by both physicians and patients, to measure and monitor the levels of cholesterol and glucose in people with metabolic disorders. They are made to be easy and quick to use, while giving prompt accurate results. The accutrend GC is about the size of a smart phone and has been designed to be portable, so it can be easily accessible during any sports or other recreational hobbies. Results are displayed in MG/DL (milligrams per deciliter) or MMOL/L (milligrams per millimolar) and stored with a date and time stamp for future references. The cost of our Accutrend GC Kit is a very low price compared to the price you would get at a laboratory.
Instead of the whole process of an injection to remove blood, the Accutrend GC Kit works by obtaining blood by a quick prick of the finger. Reflectance photometry is used to measure the intensity of the reaction color within the test strips. The concentration of the sample is then calculated by the meter.
What You’ll Need:
Before Initial Use:
Meters are only 95% accurate, to maintain accuracy, make sure the measuring window is clean at all times, otherwise inaccurate results could be shown.
Users with hemophobia may have difficulty using this device.
If you are sharing this meter with another person, to help protect yourself against infection (e.g. hepatitis or AIDS) it is suggested that you;
-Only apply the blood outside the meter
-Use a separate lancet and lancing device for each person
-Disinfect the meter with 70% alcohol after each measurement
If measurements are taken where the temperature is higher than showed below, a safety warning will appear, the credibility of this test may be decreased.
Accutrend® Glucose: +18°C to +32°C

Yes. If you set the time and date on your meter during the inital set up, the device will automatically save your data so it can be reviewed later on.
Keep it stored in a place that is room temperature and ideally out of reach of children.
The cost is much lower than if you were to go to a laboratory to get testing done. It is also more convenient, as you can bring it with you where you go, as well as saving you time from having to book an appointment and the possibility of wait times.
