How does this product work? The AlphaTRAK 2 Glucose Starter Kit is easy and convenient. Make sure to have all of the supplies necessary to run a test prior to starting. Adjust the lancing device depth by rotating the wheel (1= most shallow; 4=deepest). Turn the meter on by inserting a test strip with the butterfly on the test strip facing up and flying into the meter. Make sure the code on the meter matches the species code on the test strip vial. Get a small blood drop from the selected sample area. Your veterinarian will teach you the best way to obtain a blood sample from your pet. Touch only one side of the test strip to the blood drop. Make sure you are using test strips specifically for AlphaTrak 2. You should hear a beep and see the lines moving on the meter display. Results appear in seconds.
