Quality Assurance Testing Frequency

It is recommended that the testing of positive and negative controls be performed on each newly opened test strip bottle of CIDEXPLUS® 28 Day Solution Test Strips. After this initial testing, it is recommended that testing of freshly prepared positive and negative controls be performed on a regular basis as established by your own quality control procedures and program. This testing program will serve to minimize errors between different users, use of outdated materials or product that has been improperly stored or handled.

For optimal results, please carefully follow Instructions for Use when using test strips:

  1. Completely submerge indicated pad of the strip into solution. Hold for 1 second then remove. Do not shake strip.
  2. Remove excess solution by standing the strip upright on a paper towel.
  3. Read results at 90 seconds. Do not read past 90 seconds. Pad will be completely red to indicate effective solution. If any yellow remains on the pad apart from the top line, the solution is ineffective and must be discarded.
  4. Tightly recap test strip bottle after each use.
  5. Discard any unused test strips 90 days after bottle is originally opened.
