The Importance of the Code Key in Each Vial of New Ketone Strips

  • Last updated December 1, 2017

Use the code key before using any ketone strips!

The code key calibrates each new batch of ketone strips with the meter to ensure accurate readings. So it’s very important you calibrate your meter with each new batch or vial of ketone strips  before using the strips.

Where to find your code key

Each new meter kit includes one ketone code key in the side pocket of the black accessory case that will match the 10 ketone strips inside the black case.   Each new box of ketone strips that you order will have a code key in the bottom of the box of strips, not in the vial.

Note:  please do not throw away your ketone box unless you have found the code key. Unfortunately, we do not have any extras to provide to you and you will not be able to use the strips. Please contact customer support for assistance.


How to calibrate with the code key

It’s super simple, just insert the code key into the meter strip port and your meter will display a 3-digit code number that corresponds to the number on vial of ketone strips and the number printed the strip box.

You only need to code your meter with new strips once, before using any new ketone strips.

However, you should keep the code key on hand until you finish the corresponding batch of strips, just in case you need to use it again.

Note: Glucose strips do not require calibration.  There is no code key for glucose strips

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for
    another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  4. is this for the old meter or the new one? this looks like the old one.

  5. Does this also apply for the refill packs?

    Note why the following is confusing: “Each new meter kit includes one ketone code key in the side pocket of the black accessory case that will match the 10 ketone strips inside the black case”

  6. I am using the new meter I received in exchange for my older model. Great. However, the strips now come in hard to open tiny packettes which seem to have no easy way of opening without touching the actual strip ending in some way. There is no code for the ketone strips that arrived within the new shipment either. Am I overlooking the code key somewhere or has that been scrapped? My ketones are reading .3 no matter what I do, and my old unit read .9 or above with identical lifestyle. I used the little cleaner bottles already. I wish you’d rethink the tiny packettes system. Very cumbersome. Thank you for your attention, C J Beaman

  7. I received my Keto-mojo GK+ test kit, however there is no “code Key” included with the device. What do I do?

  8. Manually setting the code without the code key would be nice.

  9. Strip code is 841, code on keto mojo is 840- how do I change that?

  10. I’m trying to find out if you have to calibrate for the blood glucose strips because I don’t think the reading is anywhere near accurate. Mine is showing between 153-183 first thing in the morning. I’ve been doing a low carb diet for over a year.
    I can find video’s where it shows how to calibrate meter for the ketone strips, but nothing on the blood gluclose strips.
