Each test strip is autocoding, requires less blood than other strips, and is individually wrapped in foil to protect it from contaminants. During this interview, Matt explains why the foil testing is so important, what is on the horizon for ketone and glucose testing, and the distinctive attributes that make KetoCoach X the best strips available.
