How to store blood glucose test strips

Pay attention to the following when storing test strips:

  1. Blood glucose test strips should be stored at room temperature between 4˚C to 30˚C and at normal humidity levels (below 70%).

  2. Do not place test strips in the refrigerator.
  3. Do not pack test strips separately into several small bags, as humidity will affect the accuracy of strips.
  4. Test strips are effective for either 3-4 months after opening or until the expiration date if sealed and unopened.
  5. After opening a test strip vial, make sure to tightly close the lid again to prevent the ingress of humidity.
