Question

Does Relion meter need calibration?

I am getting very high readings with Relion meter and strips compared to another meter I have and with actual laboratory results, all from the same sample. Relion read 170 while the other meter read 128 and lab result was 133. If calibration is needed, how can I get it done?

Your results are within the USA FDA requirements of +/- 20% for blood glucose test devices.

You have to go to Relion's website to get the testing solution, that will tell you if it's accurate, or not. I don't know how to calibrate the meter, but at least you'll know if it's accurate, or not, once you get the testing solution.

It is free, but they do require you to give them all your contact info, including phone and email. Bad form on their part, but they don't carry it in Walmart stores, or online. You HAVE to go through the Relion Website to get it.

Mine didn't need calibration. I ordered the calibration fluid for free of the Relion website (I don't have the link, found it in another answer here) and it was reliable. I'd call Relion and they will send it to you. Sounds like your machine is off since it is so different from the lab results.

they probably didn't change. There just are quite a few test strips and they only work in the meter they are made for.

Reli-On has more than 1 meter and if you bought the wrong strip they are not interchangeable. From when I first bought the Prime the strip design has changed but the new strips still work. Just going cheaper is my guess.

Make sure you are using the Prime test strips with a Prime meter. I have used these for months and they work perfectly every time for me.

Why do ReliOn Prime meter/strips show my sugar is 40 points higher than my Contour Next meter?

I'll try the comparison again another day but my instincts tell me this is a rip off product.

Mine are fine. Check your test strips with the meter solution. That should tell you whether or not it's a true reading.

answer 2
Because there is lack of quality control with ReliOn meters and strips. I didn't even have accurate readings when I used the Bayer Contour a couple of years ago. There seems to be no true glucose reading other than when done at the lab.

I disagree with you. Been using mine for 10 months now with no problems at all. Maybe an occasional test strip that codes Error.

Normal variance when testing on all meter is 30 points. This would be considered acceptable (iup to a 60 point spread is possible).

Call Relion and order a test solution that they provide at no cost to insure that your meter is working correctly. I did mine and it was fine. You should also test your other meter. I never heard of it!
