Re: [IPk] Strips for meters and US mg/dl

Hi Jackie,

It wouldn't be a good idea to assume that they're compatible without
checking with Medisense.  The strips for the Medisense Soft-Sense/Sof-Tact
are definitely NOT compatible with each other, despite the two machines
being virtually identical.  It might also be worth looking in to the cost of
buying them here.
