For replacement batteries, control solutions, log books or lancing devices you can order through our online shop, or contact us via the Contact page or our Freephone Helpline 0800 088 3920. If you require a starter kit (including meter, strips, lancing device, lancets) please call our Helpline. We operate free meter for life scheme so please either register your meter through our website or fill out the warranty card with your details – this can be found in your Microdot+ starter kit box – and return it to us.
If you have been given a Microdot meter by your GP practice sundries such as batteries, control solutions, log books and lancing devices are all free of charge.
Please be aware that the vial of strips must be closed after every use to prevent contamination (thus resulting in false readings). Once opened strips will last for six months providing they are sealed after every use and stored appropriately. If your strips are consistently reading outside of the ideal control range (this can be found on the strip vial) please contact us for replacement and we will exchange them. Control solution is only accurate for three months after opening but replacement solution is available free of charge from CSL either by requesting from our online shop, via our Freephone Helpline or our Contact Us page.
