Re: [IP] Old BG Machines - Was orthoscopic surgery



Joyce, it sounds like the original accuchek or one right after.  If I
remember, it took about 2 or 3 minutes to get the results (took about 15
minutes and several swear words to "program" each different vial of test
strips.  Thank goodness for my One Touch Profile( and sooooo much better
that Clinetest).
