EGS-2003 is a new type of test strip, please download the latest iGluco App and select the test strip type to EGS-2003.
EGS-2003 is using a different enzyme technology comparing with AGS-1000I, if the test strip you use does not match with the setting, the measurement results will be inaccurate and may result in wrong medication dosage decisions:
If AGS-1000I is selected in the app but the strip actually used is EGS-2003. The test result will be inaccurate and much higher than the actual result.
If EGS-2003 is selected in the app but the strip actually used is AGS-1000I. The test result will be inaccurate and lower than the actual result.
Please select the correct test strip type in your app and sync with glucose meter before your next test. If one type of strips being selected in the app, do not use other strip types to avoid any inaccurate results.
