Test strips

curious -
any insight or details to the difference between

one touch ultra test strips vs. one touch ultra BLUE test strips?

do the BLUE have a different meter pairing?
okay to use in my ultra touch II meter?

appreciate the weigh ins.


The blue test strips are the new version of the One Touch test strips. Takes a smaller sample, and it has something they advertise as “Double Sure” technology, or it tests each sample 2 times with the one blood drop to verify results. I believe they are OK to use in any of the Ultra family of meters.

ah, fancy…thanks for the reply, jennifer!

The One Touch Ultra Blue test strips all have a code of 25. I think this was their answer to the other meters advertisements for “no coding.”
