What are Freestyle Optium Test Strips?


Freestyle Optium Test Strips are individually foil-wrapped, have a small sample size and a short 5 second test time, ideal for checking your blood glucose levels as quickly and easily as possible. These test strips give highly accurate results when used with compatible Freestyle devices. 


Which Freestyle devices are compatible?

Freestyle Optium Test Strips are compatible with Freestyle Optium Neo, Freestyle Libre and Freestyle Libre 2. If you have a different device, these test strips will not work with your blood glucose meter and you will need to find the correct corresponding strips.


How to use these test strips

Start by thoroughly washing and drying your hands. Put a test strip into your compatible Freestyle blood glucose meter and prick your fingertip with a clean lancing device. Squeeze out a drop of blood and touch it with the edge of your test strip. Within 5 seconds, your meter will display a blood sugar reading. Once you’ve recorded your reading, dispose of the test strip immediately and do not reuse. 


Can you reuse test strips?

No, you can’t reuse test strips. If you attempt to reuse a test strip, your meter will tell you that the strip is invalid as soon as you insert it. If you get a reading at all, it cannot be trusted as an accurate reading as the strip has been tampered with. Manufacturers only put enough enzymes into the strip for one test and one test only - after it’s been used, there won’t be enough for another test.


Storage information

Store your test strips at room temperature and do not use them if they have been damaged in any way. Do not use the test strips after the expiry date.

I needed these test strips for training purposes. An excellent product that is easy to use and to tear open!
