The Dario Control Solutions are for use with the Dario Blood Glucose Meter and the Dario Blood Glucose Test Strips to check that the meter and test strips are working together properly and that the test is performing correctly.
The Dario Control Solution confirms that the meter and test strips are performing as expected. A drop of control solution is placed on the edge of the test strip, allowing the test strip to automatically draw the control solution into the yellow window. Compare the results on the meter with the values displayed on the test strip cartridge.
The Dario Control Solution package comes with two bottles of control solution (Level 1, Level 2).
- 2 2.5mL vials of Dario control solution (level 1/ level 2)
When to Perform a Control Solution Test

You should also use control solution before using your glucose monitoring system for the first time or if the test strip cartridge has been left open or exposed to extreme heat, cold or humanity. For further details please contact the manufacturer support.
Store your Dario Control solution at 30-80 degrees F, Do Not Refrigerate, Discard after 3 Month After Opening, For In Vitro Diagnostic Use Only.
Dario Control Solution – Test Principle
The Dario Control Solution contains a known amount of glucose that reacts with chemicals on the Dario Test Strip. Following the same procedure you would use to check your blood, you will apply a drop of control solution to a test strip. The glucose in the control solution reacts with chemicals in the test strip. The result displayed on the meter should fall within the expected range printed on the test strip cartridge label. You only need to obtain a single result within the expected range to verify system performance. A result outside the range printed on the test strip cartridge label may indicate the system is not performing correctly.
