Orienting supervision of the blood-glucose concentration for diabetics and suspected diabetics and patient self-testing.
Detection is based on the glucoseoxidase- peroxidase reaction and reacts specifi cally to glucose.
Visual evaluation by comparison with the colour scale. Normal concentrations (fasting blood sugar) vary between 70 and 120 mg/dl (3.9 - 6.7 mmol/l).
Both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia can be determined with this test. If the test results vary slightly from normal values, a quantitative (e.g. photometric) test should be carried out.
Glycaemie C is unsuitable for monitoring neonatal blood specimen. Laymen studies have shown that 95% of all readings have been assigned to the correct colour field. 3% of the readings showed a falsely positive result, only 2% of all readings were falsely negative.
