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.

Regards.

Andrew
