Instructions

How to Perform a Blood Glucose Test

  1. Gather all supplies needed to perform the test.
  2. Choose a Capillary Sampling site.
  3. Check test strip expiry date on the vial.
  4. Snap off the cap on the lancing device at an angle. Insert a new lancet firmly into the blue lancet holder cup. (This may cock the device.) Replace the cap until it snaps or clicks into place. Be careful not to touch the exposed needle on the lancet.
  5. The lancing device offers 9 different settings (including half settings). Level 1 is the shallowest depth; Level 5 is the deepest. Pull back the grey slider until it clicks. (You may have already cocked the device in step 4.)
  6. Turn meter on by inserting the test strip with butterfly facing up and flying into the meter.
  7. Make sure the dog or cat code on the meter match the code on the test strip vial. If necessary, change the code on the meter by pressing M or C.
  8. Obtain a small blood drop from the animal.
  9. Touch only one side of the test strip sample area to the blood drop and wait for the beep (if sound is on).
  10. Results appear in seconds.

The AlphaTRAK 2 Glucose Starter Kit should be stored in a safe place at room temperature. Store away from children and pets. Do not refrigerate.

  • Lancing device does not work

    By on

    All the needles, the test strips and the device as a kit was great. I liked the idea of it being a quick jab... but it took us eight tries to get it to work once and it wasnt worth it. The cat was scared of the noise. I hated scaring him by accident as I was just trying to keep his health in check. But I give this 3 stars because it was a good price, nice tidy kit set up and the device is simple. Our own vet clinic used the purple device with its strips and a long needle, not the Lancing Device. We will not be using the Lancing Device ever again, but we will be using the purple glucose tester.

  • Does the job; should include more test strips

    By on

    The Alphatrak 2 does the job it's meant for - blood glucose testing. On that count I have no complaints. My only gripe is the paltry number of test strips (25) that are included. For the price, a few more would enhance the value of this "starter" kit. If it were doubled to 50 (reasonable in my opinion) you are still going to be on the test strip reordering train for a very long time, no matter what.

  • easy to use and get measurements

    By on

    I probably should have read the instructions but I went on youtube and 2 videos on how they recommended using the measurements. everything I saw was great knowledge on how to use the system and recommendations on what and how to apply to the ear when getting a blood drop for the card and reader. I verified the results with the Vet and im confident on well and easy it is use the tool.

  • Terrible Device

    By on

    Lancer Pen didn’t work the first day I received this kit, called AlphaTRAK and they said they had problems with the Spring not being strong enough and would send me another on that day (It’s been over a week and I still haven’t received it) I wanted this kit because I thought it would be less stressful for my little dog for me to test him at him rather than the vet and it turned out to be more stressful. Not to mention the meter was not accurate! I’m sending it back.

  • Glucose Monitoring

    By on

    Product requires small amount of blood for reading which comes in handy. Too pricey and supplies to go with it are too pricey, especially for constant monitoring. Product does work well and is very accurate

  • Fairly easy to use

    By on

    The alphatrak 2 is pretty easy to use and has been a godsend in working on my cat's diabetes. Cat glucose numbers at the vet are just not reliable, and then she went into partial remission and it has been so good to have it to check that her glucose was not too low as we re-adjusted her insulin. BUT I find it easier to use a needle to get the blood rather than the little thing included with the kit. I tried that as it is what my vet office uses and I like it better.

  • If you can get blood it’s good.

    By on

    The lancing device is a joke. My vet tried it first to demonstrate how to use it, and after using up 2 test strips decided to just use a needle she had. I tried it on my own and just took the needle out and poked her with it because the device on its deepest level doesn’t do anything.

    I purchased the Alphatrak to monitor my diabetic cat's blood glucose. This product is easy to use and gives me instant results. Chewy does a great job of fulfilling my purchases quickly, and they have the best prices.

  • Would buy again

    By on

    I purchased this for our dog who was just diagnosed with diabetes and cataracts the same day! It was easy to program the machine and use on our girl! No pain, easily operating, and in a nifty carry case. This product was so awesome I bought a second one for our camper!
