The handy Wellion GALILEO blood glucose test strips are used with the Wellion GALILEO meters (Wellion GALILEO GLU/KET, Wellion GALILEO GLU/CHOLand Wellion GALILEO Compact) to measure blood glucose levels in fresh capillary whole blood.
The Wellion GALILEO meters are perfectly suited for home use as well as for use by healthcare professionals.
- Take a Wellion GALILEO blood glucose test strip from the test strip container and close it again immediately. Insert the test strip into the meter to turn it on. The display shows the "Glu" symbol, the flashing blood drop symbol and the test strip symbol.
- Press the lancing device (with a fresh lancet) against the side of the fingertip and press the release button to prick and obtain the blood drop.
- Now hold the tip of the test strip at a slight angle into the blood sample. The test strip sucks the blood like a straw. The meter beeps to let you know when there is enough blood for the test. The display shows the countdown, and after 5 seconds the result is shown on the display.
- Do not use expired test strips. Check the expiration date printed on the test strip vial and package.
- Close the test strip vial IMMEDIATELY after removing a test strip to protect the remaining test strips from moisture.
- Use test strips immediately after removing them from the vial.
- Do not use wet or damaged test strips.
- Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Store the test strips in a dry, cool environment (not in the bathroom).
- Write the opening date on the test strip vial label. Dispose of the remaining test strips 6 months after they are first opened.
- Dispose of the used test strip and lancet immediately after testing.

A Wellion blood glucose test strip is a high-tech product. The test strip consists of different layers in which electrodes are incorporated in a complex process, while a biological substrate - glucose oxidase - is applied in the reaction zone in a precise procedure. Glucose oxidase is an enzyme that reacts highly specifically with the glucose in the blood. This reaction produces electricity, which is converted by the meter into a corresponding blood sugar value and shown on the display.
