Chapter 1 TBG-460GC Monitoring System
1.1 Introduction
Thank you for choosing Blood Glucose / Cholesterol Monitoring
System. Please read the "User's Manual" for your convenient and for
safe use.
The Blood Glucose / Cholesterol Monitoring System provides you
with accurate, plasma-calibrated results based on electrochemical sense
technology and the superior capillary sampling. The Blood
Glucose / Cholesterol Monitoring System require only a small amount of
blood, the result is precisely calculated and displayed.
Please read the entire "User's Manual" carefully before using the
Blood Glucose / Cholesterol Monitoring System. The "User's Manual"
guides you through the operation procedures with illustrated directions
and help you find the required informations.
Please contact the local distributor for questions and enquiries.

Please carefully read the instructions in this "User's Manual" and
become familiar with the test procedures before using the system. User
should do the quality check and consult with a healthcare professional
before doing any important medical decision.
1.2 Precautions
Please observe the following limitations for obtaining accurate results
of Blood Glucose / Cholesterol Monitoring System.
- The measurements are only for reference purposes. For an analysis
of the measurements, consult specialists.
- For In-vitro diagnostic use only (External use only).
- Single use only, please do not reuse the test strip.
- Do not use this product for those who cannot express their opinions
properly including infants or babies.
-2-
- Handle the strip with clean and dry hands; lancing site for the test
should be cleaned and dried thoroughly.
- Do not perform the test while a cell phone is used beside; prevent
the electronic signal interference.
- Oxygen concentration in air is low may cause the test inaccurate;
there is no effect from altitude up to 10,000 feet above sea level.
- Medical therapy for intravenous injection, such as immunoglobulin
preparations and peritoneal dialysis solutions,containing sugar
compounds may cause higher test results.
- Hematocrit (Hct) range from 30-55% is acceptable.Hct less than
30% may cause elevated result.Hct above 55% may cause reduced
glucose results versus a whole blood reference.
- Do not drop the product.
- Keep the lancets and lancing device out of the reach of the children.
- Keep the meter and test strips at room temperature (10-30 C).

Chapter 3 How to perform Test
3.1 Before Testing
Coding the Meter
TBG-460GC meter should be coded before testing with test Strips for
the first time, or every time a new box of test strips is used. Each vial of
test strips has an assigned code number. The code strip is packaged
with the test strip in order to calibrate/code the meter. Every time a test
strip is inserted, please be sure to check the code number appearing on
the screen is the same as the code number marked on the test strip vial.
-7-
Directions :
1. Insert code strip into the test port of
the meter. Wait for the code number
and test mode to appear on the
screen.
设定
2. Make sure the code number on the
screen is the same as the code
number on the code strip, and the
test mode is also the same as
marked on the test vial. Remove the
code strip. “ ” should appear on the
screen, indicating that the meter has
been successfully coded.
Cautions :
If “E-E” appears on the screen during coding procedure, there
may be a problem with the code strip or a wrong category
code strip may be misused. Perform the coding procedures
again, and if “E-E” continues to appear, please contact the
authorized distributor for service.

lancing device.
2. Insert the lancet firmly into the lancet holder until it comes to a stop
and remove the protective lancet cover.
3. Replace the end cap by snapping it back onto the lancing device
body.
4. Select the skin penetration depth by turning the depth selector until
the desired number can be seen in the selection window. 5 levels of
skin penetration: The higher the number, the deeper it pricks.
5. Pull the part located at the back of the device until it comes to a stop
and then release.
6. Place the lancing device firmly against the finger and press the
release button to obtain a blood sample. After finishing your blood
test, dispose the used lancet safely in an appropriate container.
3.2 Perform the Blood Glucose Test
GLUC
Directions :
1. Insert a Blood Glucose test strip (blue
color) into the test strip port of the
meter and immediately cover the vial
to keep the strips in dry condition.
The meter will turn on automatically.
-9-
设定
2. Be careful to make sure the test
mode and code number on the
screen are the same as the one
marked on the test strip vial. Icon
“GLUC” and “CHOL” indicate
measuring mode of glucose and
total cholesterol respectively. If not,
remove the test strip and re-code the
meter.
3. Obtain a drop of blood with a lancing
device.
Do not squeeze your fingertip hard
to obtain a drop of blood. It may
influence the result.
4. Touch the sample Inlet of the strip to
the drop of blood sample until the
meter sounds a “beep”, which
means the sample has drawn into
strip successfully.
5. The screen will display a count down
from 10 seconds for glucose testing.
3.3 Perform the Total Cholesterol Test
1. Insert a Total Cholesterol test strip (yellow color) into the test strip
port of the meter and follow the procedure as performing the blood
glucose test.
2. Make sure to get enough blood sample volume.
3. The screen will display a count down from 26 seconds for cholesterol
testing.
-10-
Note :
1. The TBG-460GC Monitoring System includes glucose and
total cholesterol test that are all plasma calibrated. The user does
not have to convert it into plasma result.
2. Use the strips before the expiry date, the strips can only be used
within 3 months remaining shelf life after the first opening of the
vial.
3. Apply the blood sample onto the correct position of the strip
precisely, follow the directions to avoid incorrect operations.
4. Prohibited applying the blood sample to the test strip twice, it will
cause inaccurate test results.

Chapter 4 Quality Control
Intended to use:
The control solution is used to check the performance of the system,
including Blood Glucose and Cholesterol Monitor System, Glucose and
Cholesterol strip, user's test skill. The system is performing adequately
if the control solution test result falls within the indicated control range
listed on the test strips vial label.
A control test should be proceeded:
1. When you suspect that the meter or test strips are not working
properly.
2. When your blood glucose or cholesterol test results are not
consistent with how you feel, or when you think your results are not
accurate.
3. When you drop or bump your meter.
4. Upon the advice of the healthcare professional.
How to perform a control test.
1. Insert a test strip into the test strip port of the meter and immediately
cover the vial to keep the strips in dry condition.
2. Be careful to make sure the test mode and code number on the
screen are the same as the one marked on the test strip vial. If not,
remove the test strip and re-code the meter to correct test mode and
code number.
3. Shake the control Solution vial vigorously then open the cap to
discard the first three drops of control solution, after wiping the
dispense tip and cleaning with tissue then drop some control solution
onto a clean object such as transparency. If it is a cholesterol test,
Please drop out enough control solution (at least 10uL).
4. Touch the Sample Inlet of the Glucose or Cholesterol Test Strip to the
drop of Control Solution until the Meter sounds a “beep”, The screen
will display a count down from 10 seconds for Glucose Test Strip or
26 seconds for Cholesterol Test Strip.
5. After counting down, the Screen will display the control Test results,
Compare the results to the control range listed on the Test Strip Vial.
Warning:
-12-
. Please read this user's manual for control solution test carefully
before use.
. Do not reuse the Test Strips and close the Test Strip Vial lid tightly
after use.
. The first three drops of Control Solution must be discarded and the
vial should be shaked well before use when the vial is newly opened.
. Newly opened vial of Control Solution and Test Strips must be
marked with the opening date.
. Glucose Control Solution is used for glucose test mode And
Cholesterol Control Solution is used for cholesterol test mode.
. If the test results fall outside the control range, please reconfirm and
repeat the test, if it is still fall outside the range, please contact
authorized distributor for help and service.
. Control solutions are not included in the system, please contact your
distributor if you want to do a quality control test.
Chapter 5 Meter Memory Function
