What is the difference between Nipro TRUEtest and TRUEtrack test strips?

You may be asking yourself, “Can there really be that much of a difference between Nipro TRUEtest and TRUEtrack test strips?” The truth is, both of them have similar features. However, there are some differences that differentiate them. Let’s take a look at the product features of the TRUEtest and TRUEtrack test strips.


  • Patented TRUEfill technology
  • Small, 0.5 micro-liter blood sample
  • Laser Etched Gold Layer
  • Enhanced precision and accuracy with unique TRUtest strips with GoldSensor Laser Accuracy
  • Compatible with TRUEresult® and TRUE2go® meters


  • Patented TRUEfill technology
  • Small, one micro-liter blood sample
  • Costs up to 30% less than competitors
  • Clinically proven accuracy 100% of first time users obtained clinically accurate results
  • Compatible with the TRUEtrack® blood glucose meter



First of all, both test strips use the TRUEfill technology, which enables precise entry of the blood sample, which is patented by Nipro. According to product reviews and the manufacturer, both test strips deliver clinically accurate test results, so they are both equal in that respect as well.


The first difference between these test strips comes up in the amount of blood you need on the test strip. Although you need twice as much blood for the TRUEtrack than the TRUEtest, 0.5 microliters is so small that it is almost unnoticeable. Another dissimilarity between the two test strips is the meter compatibility. TRUEtest test strips are compatible with TRUEresult and TRUE2go blood glucose meters, whereas TRUEtrack test strips are only compatible with TRUEtrack blood glucose meters.

As you can see, there aren’t many enormous differences between the two test strips. Although depending on your blood glucose meter, you may require a certain kind. Luckily for you, the DiabeticCare store holds both of these types of test strips at the same price, so the choice is yours!
