Storing Glucose Sensors

Did You Know:Our glucose sensors have undergone testing which included measuring the temperature within shipping boxes from our shipping centers to final destinations.

So do not worry if your sensors are exposed for a short period of time to a temperature extreme like the back porch on a hot or cold day.

Sensor Temperature Changes
Sof-sensor +36 °F to +80 °F (+2 °C to +27°C)
Enlite Sensor +36 °F to +86 °F (+2 °C to +30°C)

    For temperatures greater than the recommended range, sensors will require cooled storage (such as in an ice chest or refrigerator) at temperatures not lower than the recommended range. Prior to using a sensor stored in a cool environment, allow the sensor package to warm up to room temperature for about 15 minutes before opening the sensor package to prevent condensation.

    Warning: Do not freeze the sensor. Sensors should not be stored in direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, or humidity.
