Diabetes Testing

This is a diabetes test strip. The image was captured using the SMZ-168 stereo zoom microscope and the 2 mega pixel MC2000 microscope camera at 40x magnification.

The circular part of the diabetes test strip is where blood sugar is measured. The manufacturer of this particular test strip uses a microscope during manufacturing to view the quality of the testing area, and to ensure that the entire circle is complete and able to accurately measure blood sugar.
