Re: [IP] Cost of first meter...... and when (prior to 1985)

Testape is what I used away from home for testing urine, you either dipped it 
in urine, or held it in your urine stream. Then you had to wait a little bit 
for the color to turn different shades of green. (light green meant low sugar 
in urine, very dark green meant lots of sugar in urine), you then compared 
the shade of green to the chart on the back of the Testape box/cartridge 
(which was the same size as a dental floss box/cartridge.
    This was back in the mid to late 60's.
