About the iBGStar®
The iBGStar meter display has a variety of symbols and animations
that help you understand what is happening and what to do next when checking your
blood sugar. This guide will give you an overview of what the different symbols
mean and what you should do when encountering them.

Apply Sample to Test Strip
During testing, an animation of a sample being applied to the test strip will appear on the meter display. This means you may apply a sample to the test strip. A sample may either be control solution or blood.
Sample Applied Symbol
During testing, this symbol will appear when you should remove the test strip from the sample.
(1, 2, 3 countdown) During testing, an animated sequence of bars and "1,2,3" will appear on the meter display. This is after a sample has been applied to the test strip. This means the meter is calculating the test result.
An animation of the iBGStar logo will appear when the meter is activated. This happens by pressing the meter button or inserting a test strip. This will not show if you are connected to your iPhone or iPod touch with the app launched.
