If you don't realize you needed to code the meter and put blood on 
the test strip, you can't use it again.  With the Ultra series of 
meters, you normally put the strip in, the meter tells you to code 
the meter and then you use the strip.  You don't need to take it out, 
unless you didn't realize you needed to code and put blood on it.
