Hold the Reader within 1.5 inches (4 cm) of the Sensor to scan it. This starts your Sensor. If sounds are turned on, the Reader beeps when the Sensor has been successfully activated. The Sensor can be used to check your glucose after the start-up period.
If the Sensor is not successfully scanned within 15 seconds, the Reader displays a prompt to scan the Sensor again. Touch OK to return to the Home Screen and touch Start New Sensor to scan your Sensor.
