OneTouch Ultra

The OneTouch Ultra Blood Glucose Monitoring System is made by LifeScan, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company. The OneTouch Ultra is a small, easy to use and very fast meter, producing results in five seconds. The OneTouch Ultra uses Ultra test strips that takes only 1 microliter of blood, is touchable, and is approved for alternative sites (e.g., the arm instead of the finger tip). Combining small blood volume, small size (3.12" x 2.25" x .85", 1.5 ounces with battery) and the short, 5-second test time, the OneTouch Ultra is highly recommended.

Testing with the OneTouch Ultra is easy. You simply insert the test strip (the meter turns on automatically) and touch the blood sample to the strip. You can touch the strips while inserting them into the meter. Your test result will be displayed in 5 seconds. The test strips are very thin and flexible, however, and thus require a little more attention when inserting into the meter than test strips for some other meters.

Key features of the OneTouch Ultra include:

  • Fast test results -- 5 seconds
  • Small blood volume (1 microliter)
  • Alternative site testing
  • Small size and weight
  • A 150-test memory for storing blood sugar readings
  • 14- and 30-day averaging
  • Large, easy-to-read display
  • Data interface port
  • Uses one lithium watch battery (rated for approximately 1,000 tests)
