Control Solution

Control Solution

Control Solution should be used at least once a week, whenever you suspect the meter or test strips may not be functioning properly, and every time a new vial of test strips is opened. Use of control solution is also recommended for teaching or learning your OneTouch® System.

OneTouch® Control Solution

OneTouch® Control Solution is for use only with OneTouch® Test Strips.

Carry out a control solution test:

  • To practise the test process, instead of using blood.
  • Once a week.
  • Whenever you open a new vial of OneTouch® Vita® test strips.
  • If you suspect that the meter or test strips are not working properly.
  • If you have had repeated unexpected blood glucose results.
  • If you drop or damage the meter.


A control solution test that is within the expected range printed on the test strip vial will tell you that the meter and test strips are working together and you are doing the test properly.

  • Read package insert before using this product.
  • The vial contains sufficient volume for 75 tests.
  • Refer to your LifeScan Meter Owner's Booklet for detailed control solution test instructions.
