Has anyone else tried the new Freestyle test strips with the barb in the blood collection area? I opened a new container a few days ago and I am very pleased with how they work. I think the same strips work for Freestyle Flash or Light.

For those who haven't seen them, they have a barb in the collection area and for me it helps with what part goes in the blood sample and the sample size is VERY small. I like the small sample size because this time of year when it is very dry, my fingers get very tender. The fewer times I need to stick myself, the happier I am.

Hmm, what will they think of next!

The new strips seem to need a very,very small blood sample
and the reaction time is almost instant. A big improvement over the old test strips.
