Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COMPENSATING SAMPLE MEASUREMENTS USING TEST STRIPS
Abstract:
A system and a method for correcting an analyte concentration measurement taken by a test strip is described herein. The test strip includes at least two spaced apart electrodes defining an electrochemical cell or reaction chamber. An initial polarization parameter of the test strip is determined at the time of test strip manufacture and a testing polarization parameter is determined at the time of testing. A resulting correction factor is then determined based on the initial and testing polarization parameters. The correction parameter can be applied to a measured analyte concentration in order to correct the measured analyte concentration.
