How the FreeStyle Mini System should be used

The system is intended for use outside the body (in other words, in vitro diagnostic use only).

The system is used for measuring blood glucose (also known as blood sugar) from samples taken from the forearm, upper arm, hand, thigh, calf or fingers.

The FreeStyle Mini Meter should only be used with FreeStyle test strips and FreeStyle control solution. Using other brands of test strips and control solution with this meter can produce inaccurate results.

Do use the FreeStyle Mini Meter for:
Testing blood glucose
Testing only with fresh capillary whole blood samples

Do not use the FreeStyle Mini Meter for:
The diagnosis of diabetes
Testing on newborns
Testing of arterial blood

Patients receiving peritoneal dialysis using a solution containing icodextrin should not use the FreeStyle Mini System.

FreeStyle Mini System contains small parts which may be dangerous if swallowed.


FreeStyle test strips are available in boxes of 50. They are available on NHS prescriptions from your GP, or you can buy them from Simplicity Health.
