Q: What makes the GLUCOCARD Vital different from other systems?

A: Every person who needs to monitor his/her blood glucose has individual preferences. That is why there are many options in the market. GLUCOCARD Vital features include Auto Coding, AST, 7 second test time, and 0.5 µL sample size.

Q: What is "auto coding"?

A: There is no need to physcially code the GLUCOCARD Vital. Coding is accomplished simply by inserting a test strip into the meter - and the meter takes care of the rest!

Q: What is the sample size of the GLUCOCARD Vital?

A: A 0.5 µL sample is required.

Q: How long does the battery last?

A: The meter requires one 3V CR2032 battery. Generally, the battery should last approximately 2,000 tests at 4 tests per day.

Q: Do I need to reset the time after the batteries have been replaced?

A: No meter settings or stored test results will be altered unless you:

  • Touch the metal portion on the main unit with your fingers or any metal.
  • Take over 30 seconds to replace battery.
  • Load the battery incorrectly.
