Testing reagent : A: GDH-PQQ (glucose dehydrogenase with pyrroloquinolinequinone): cross react with maltose (a metabolite of icodextrin), glactose or xylose (but not O2) e.g. some immunoglobulins, icodextrin peritoneal dialysis soln, Orencia, Bexxar ; B: GO (glucose oxidase) (+/- ferricyanide): affected by O2, acetaminophen, salicylates, ascorbic acid ; C: GDH-FAD (glucose dehydrogenase with flavin-adenine dinucleotide): affected by xylose; some affected by icodextrin/maltose ; D: GDH-NAD (glucose dehydrogenase with nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide) ; E: GDH-MUT (glucose dehydrogenase with pyrroloquinolinequinone modified to eliminate maltose interference)

Alternate Site Testing (in addition to fingers) : P=Palm of hand, F=Forearm, UA=Upperarm, C=Calf, T=Thigh
