Indications for use (instruction): OneTouch Select Test Strips

OneTouch® Select® Test Strips are designed for self-measurement of blood glucose with the OneTouch Select® and OneTouch SelectSimple® meters.


OneTouch® Select® Test Strips Features:

  • Test principle: electrochemistry.
  • Plasma calibration.
  • Dual Accuracy Control – Two working electrodes per OneTouch Select® Test Strip.
  • Measuring range: 1.1-33.3 mmol/l.
  • Test time: 5 seconds.
  • Blood sample – 1.5 μL.
  • Capillary filling – the test strip draws blood by itself.
  • All OneTouch Select® test strips are coded 25.
  • Protected test strip – can be touched wherever you want.
  • High specificity for glucose – the enzyme glucosooxidase, specific for D-glucose and does not react with other sugars that may be present in the blood.
  • The hematocrit level is 30-55%. Hematocrit is the percentage of red blood cells in the blood. Deviations in hematocrit from the reference range may affect test results. Blood glucose measurements may be overestimated if hematocrit is less than 30%, and if hematocrit is greater than 55%, measurements may be underestimated. If you are unsure of your hematocrit level, check with your doctor.
  • Application temperature: 6°С–44°С, relative humidity 10%– 90%.
  • OneTouch Select® Test Strips can be used up to 10,000 feet (3048 meters) without affecting test results.



The OneTouch Select® test strips are designed for use with the OneTouch Select® and OneTouch SelectSimple® meters for quantitative measurement of glucose in fresh capillary whole blood. OneTouch Select® Test Strips and Meter are designed to self-monitor blood glucose levels outside the body (for in vitro diagnostics). They can be used at home by people suffering from diabetes mellitus, as well as by doctors to examine patients in the clinic to monitor the effectiveness of diabetes mellitus treatment. OneTouch Select® Test Strips and Meter are designed to analyze blood from your fingertip.

Be sure to adhere to the rules of use and storage conditions.

How to use

Obtaining a blood sample

NOTE. Review your user manual for detailed instructions on preparing the lancing device and obtaining a blood sample for analysis. To get a drop of blood, you need to do the following:

Step 1. Select the puncture site.

You can take a drop of blood from your fingertip. Wash your hands and puncture site thoroughly with warm water and soap. Dry your hands thoroughly.

Step 2. Make a puncture.

Squeeze out a drop of blood. DO NOT squeeze the puncture site too tightly.


Determination of blood glucose

NOTE. For instructions on how to test, such as collecting a drop of blood and coding your meter (for certain models), see the user guide that came with your meter.

Step 1. Insert the test strip.

Remove the test strip from the vial and close the cap immediately.

Insert the test strip into the meter in the test strip insertion point, holding the test strip with the three contact strips in front of you and the arrow pointing down.

Make sure the test strip is inserted all the way. The meter turns on automatically.

Your OneTouch Select® meter requires coding. Make sure the codes on the meter and test strips match.

The OneTouch SelectSimple® meter does not require coding.

Use only OneTouch Select® test strips with the same Code 25 with the OneTouch SelectSimple® meter.

Step 2. Apply blood sample.

When the blood drop symbol flashes on the display, bring the meter and test strip along the narrow channel at the top of the test strip to the edge of the blood drop.

Hold the top edge of the test strip against the drop of blood until the confirmation window is full.

  • DO NOT apply blood to the test strip from the top.
  • DO NOT move the test strip in the meter while testing.
  • DO NOT press the test strip very tightly to the puncture site (up to the tip of your finger).
  • DO NOT use a smeared drop of blood.

If the confirmation window does not fill completely with blood before the meter starts to count down, DO NOT apply more blood to this test strip; discard it and retest with a new test strip.

If the confirmation window does not fill completely, an error message may appear or you may receive an inaccurate test result.

In case of problems with filling the test strip with blood, call the LifeScan Advisory Line by phone: 0 800 500 353 (free from a landline phone), Mon-Fri, 09:00-18:00.

Step 3. Get an accurate analysis result in 5 seconds.

The blood glucose result appears on the display after the meter counts down from 5 to 1.

ATTENTION! Make sure the correct unit is mmol/l. If the unit of measure is incorrect, call the LifeScan Advisory Line at 0 800 500 353 (free from a landline phone), Mon-Fri, 09:00-18:00.


Test results

OneTouch Select® and OneTouch SelectSimple® blood glucose meters show results from 1.1 to 33.3 mmol/l.

If the test result is lower than 1.1 mmol/l, a low blood glucose warning or error message appears. This may indicate severe hypoglycemia (low blood glucose). It is necessary to immediately take the measures recommended by the attending physician. While this message may be due to an erroneous test result, it is safer to take treatment first and then test again.

If the test result is higher than 33.3 mmol/l, a high blood glucose warning or error message will appear. This may indicate severe hyperglycemia (high blood glucose). Retest your blood glucose. If the warning appears again, contact your doctor immediately.


Procedure limitations

Test results using OneTouch Select® test strips will be accurate under the following limitations.

  • DO NOT use the meter to diagnose diabetes mellitus or screen newborns.
  • Test strips are for single use only. DO NOT use the same test strip twice.
  • These test strips are specific for the determination of D-glucose and do not react with other sugars that may be present in the blood.
