GlucoRx HCT Meter
This multiparameter meter changes everything!
GlucoRx’s ‘HCT’ meter system specifically for insulin users is a quality, unique multiparameter machine with Haematocrit Correction Technology, that provides a complete health check by measuring blood glucose levels, ketone, and haematocrit. More than just a blood sugar monitor.
GlucoRx HCT Glucose Test Strips use advanced GDH-FAD enzyme technology with 2+2 (AC and DC) Bio Signal.
The AC signal works to provide the haematocrit result, and DC calculates glucose. The meter then corrects the glucose level according to the haematocrit value for enhanced accuracy in self-management of diabetes.
GlucoRx HCT meter uses only GlucoRx HCT Glucose Test Strips, GlucoRx HCT Ketone Test Strips and GlucoRx Lancets
The GlucoRx HCT starter kit includes a meter with batteries, 10x glucose test strips, 1x ketone test strip, glucose control solution, ketone control key, lancing device, 10x sterile lancets, owner’s manual & quick guides, daily log book, warranty card & protective wallet.
The GlucoRx HCT blood glucose meter will last many years if looked after well.
This symbol means the meter has power.
AC and PC meal markers enable tagging of your blood glucose results before and after meals, respectively. You can always just keep the meter in ‘Gen’ (general) mode.
Start with the lancing device on the middle depth setting and adjust either side accordingly to suit your skin hardness/required puncture penetration.
This is for control testing GlucoRx HCT Ketone Test Strips:
- Insert ketone control key into the HCT meter so it displays “KETONE” with flashing test strip and blood drop symbols.
- Turn the switch on the front side of the ketone control key ON.
- After counting down to 0, the control test result will appear on the meter display. This result should fall within the control range printed on that particular ketone strip foil packet. If not, please repeat the control test.
- Make sure you turn off the switch on the front side of the ketone control key after removing it from your meter.
A control solution test tests if your meter is functioning correctly. By using a liquid in place of blood which contains a known amount of glucose, you can determine if your HCT meter is working correctly with your GlucoRx HCT Glucose Test Strips.
A control solution test should be performed when using the first glucose strip out of a new pot or when you feel the reading is not what you expected.
