From the manufacturer's website:
Accu-Chek control solutions are specifically designed to work with your meter and test strips to confirm the accuracy of your results. The control solution contains a known amount of glucose. Simply use it instead of blood on a test strip. If the result matches the expected glucose level, your meter and test strips are working properly.
Perform a test with Accu-Chek Guide glucose control solution to ensure accuracy any time:
- A new test strip box is opened
- The test strip container has been left open for an extended period of time
- Your test strips may have been damaged
- You want to ensure the meter and test strips are accurate
- Your test strips were stored in extreme temperatures, humidity or both
- You drop your meter
- Your current test result does not match how you feel
- You want to make sure you are performing tests correctly
