I ordered a free One Touch Ultra 2 meter from their web site last week.
It came today, it included the whole kit, 10 strips, control solution,
diabetes DVD etc.
This made 4 One Touch Ultra meters for me. I have a One Touch Ultra (5+
years old), a One Touch UltraSmart (2+years old), a One Touch Mini (1
year old), and now the One Touch2 (new). I lined them all up and with
the same vial of strips did the control solution test on them. The
One Touch Ultra = 125
One Touch UltraSmart = 125
One Touch Ultra Mini = 126
One Touch Ultra2 = 118
The control was 103 - 137 on the vial of strips.
Now I'm wondering if the 3 older meters were correct or if they made
impovements that made the new One Touch Ultra2 more correct.
They did not "make improvements that made the new" one any better. The FDA
requires +-20%. The range on your control solution implies the maker
thinks the meters are good for about +-15%. The numbers you got are all
well within both margins of error. You cannot conclude that any of them
are any 'better' than any of the others.
