■ The system is intended for use outside the body (in vitro 
   diagnostic use). It is for single-patient use. It should be used only 
   for testing glucose (sugar) and only with fresh capillary whole 
   blood samples taken from the finger and the alternative sites 
   including the palm, the forearm, the upper arm, the calf and the 
   thigh. The system is intended for use at home.  It should not be 
   used for the diagnosis of diabetes or for the testing of newborns.

■ The System is to be used by a single person and should not be

■ The System is intended for self-testing outside the body (in vitro 
   diagnostic use) by people with diabetes at home as an aid to 
   monitor the effectiveness of diabetes control. The System should 
   not be used for the diagnosis of or screening for diabetes, nor for 
   neonatal use. Alternative site testing should be done only during 
   steady – state times (when glucose is not changing rapidly).

■ The “CLEVER CHOICE” Test Strips are for use with the Blood 
   Glucose Meter to quantitatively measure glucose in fresh 
   capillary whole blood samples drawn from the fingertips, palm, 
   forearm, upper arm, calf and thigh. 

■ The CLEVER CHOICE control solutions is intended for use with 
   the System, to check that the glucose meter and test strips are 
   working properly and that you are doing the test correctly. These 
   solutions contain a known range of glucose, as indicated on the 
   strips vial bottles.

1. Open the battery cover on the back of meter.

 AST in this system can be used only during steady-state blood 
glucose conditions described in the section of “About AST”.

Test principle
The test is based on the measurement of electrical current gen-
erated by the reaction of glucose with the reagent of the strip. The 
meter measures the current and displays the corresponding blood 
glucose level. The strength of the current produced by the reaction 
depends on the amount of glucose in the blood sample. 


Important: There are limitations for doing AST.
Please consult your healthcare professional before you do AST. 

What is AST ?
Alternative site testing (AST) 
means that people use parts of the 
body other than the fingertips to 
check their blood glucose levels. 
This system allows you to test on 
the palm, the forearm

the upper 

arm, the calf

or the thigh with the 

equivalent results to fingertips 

Fingertips feel pain more readily because they are full of nerve 
endings (receptors). At other body sites, since nerve endings are 
not so condensed, you will not feel as much pain as at the fingertip.

Food , medication , illness, stress and exercise can affect blood 
glucose levels. Capillary blood at fingertip reflects these changes 
faster than capillary blood at other sites. Therefore when testing 
blood glucose during or immediately after meal, physical exercise, 
or any other event, take a blood sample from your finger only.
You do AST 

 in the following instances:


In a pre-meal or fasting state (more than 2 hours since the 



Two hours or more after taking insulin.


Two hours or more after exercising.


Alternative site testing(AST) should not be used to calibrate 

     continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMs).


Results from alternative site testing should not be used in 

     insulin doses calculations.


You think your blood glucose is low.


You are unaware of hypoglycemia.


You are testing for hyperglycemia.


Your AST results do not match the way you feel.


Your routine glucose results are often fluctuating.

Lancet Holder

Depth Indicator

A Clear Cap


Adjustable Tip

If your lancing device differs from the one shown here, please 

refer to the manufacturer’s manual to ensure proper usage.

To reduce the chance of infection:


Never share a lancet or the lancing device.


Always use a new, sterile lancet. Lancets are for single use 



Avoid getting hand lotion, oils, dirt, or debris when handling 

the lancets.

Screw off the cap of the lancing device.

Insert a lancet into the lancet holder and 

push down firmly until it is fully in place.

Twist the protective disk until it separates 

from the lancet.


Replace the lancing device cap. Turn the 

cap until it is snug but not too tight.

The adjustable tip offers 5 levels of skin penetration. 

Twist the adjustable tip in either direction until 

the number lines up with the arrow:

1-2 for soft or thin skin,

3  for average skin,

4-5 for thick or calloused skin.


Slide the cocking control back until it clicks.

If it does not click the device may have 

been cocked when the lancet was inserted.


The lancing device is now ready for use. 

Set aside for later use.


Stimulating blood perfusion by rubbing the puncture site prior to

blood extraction has a significant influence on the glucose value 

obtained. Blood from a site that has not been rubbed exhibits a 

measurably different glucose concentration than blood from the 

finger. When the puncture site was rubbed prior to blood 

extraction, the difference was significantly reduced.


On the lancets and the lancing device.


background image

Please follow the suggestions below before obtaining a drop 

of blood:


Rub the puncture site for about 20 seconds before penetration.

●  Use a clear cap while setting the lancing device for AST. 

    Wash and dry your hands before starting.


●  Select the puncture site either at the fingertips or another 


    part  (please see section “Alternative Site Testing”

    (AST) on how to select the appropriate sites).

●  Clean the puncture site using cotton moistened with 70% 

    alcohol and let it air dry.
Fingertip testing
Hold the lancing device firmly against the side 

of your finger. Press the release button. You 

will hear a click, indicating that the puncture 

is complete.


Blood from sites other than the fingertip
A clear cap, together with the kit, makes it 

easier to get a drop of blood for AST. When 

you want to obtain blood from sites other 

than the finger, replace the lancing device

cap with the clear cap. Turn the clear cap

until it is snug but not too tight, and then 

slide the cocking control back until it clicks.


Choose a different spot each time you test. Repeated 

     punctures at the same spot may cause soreness and calluses.




Please consult your health care professional before you 

      begin AST.

It is recommended to discard the first drop of blood as it 


     contain tissue fluid, which may a


fect the test result.

Performing a Blood Glucose Test
Step 1.

Wash hands with soap and warm water.
Step 2.

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. Remove the test strip from the 

vial and use it instantly.
Step 3.

Insert the test strip into the meter's  test port and the meter is 

turned on. The time and date appears on the screen.

NOTE: Be sure to use CLEVER CHOICE test strips, other test 

strips may not produce accurate results.

Step 6

As soon as enough blood has filled the confir-

mation window of the test strip, you will hear a 

beep letting you know the test has begun. A 

countdown of 5 seconds starts.

Note:  make sure the confirmation window of the Test Strip is 

completely filled with your blood sample.

Step 7

Your blood glucose level, along date and time 

appears on the display. Blood glucose results 

are automatically stored in the memory.     

The results obtained from this meter are plasma-calibrated. This 

helps you and your physician or other qualified healthcare 

provider to compare your meter results with laboratory tests.

Reference to the instructions given by your physician or other 

qualified healthcare provider, do not deviate from these instructions 

on the basis of the result without first consulting your physician.

Step 8

Eject the used test strip and remove the lancet. To 

eject the test strip, point the strip at a disposal 

container for sharp objects. The meter will switch 

itself off automatically after the test strip is ejected.

Please wash hands thoroughly with soap and 

water after handling the meter, lancing device, or 

test strips.

The meter provides you with whole blood equivalent results. The 

result you obtain from your meter may differ somewhat 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. To make an accurate comparison 

between meter and laboratory results, follow the guidelines below.
Before going to the lab:


Do a control solution test to make sure that the meter is 

     working properly.


Fast for at least eight hours and then do comparison tests, 

     if possible.


Take your meter with you to the lab.

While staying at the lab:
Make sure that the samples for both tests test are taken and 

tested within 15 minutes of each other.
