- If we don't get enough blood the first time, then we have an additional 60 seconds to try to get more with our meter. However, sometimes Buzz's blood clots on the test strip itself and the meter refuses to take any more blood. From experience, it's best to just get a new test strip rather than racing to get more blood. So if this happens, I put a brand new test strip into the meter and repeat all of these steps making sure to get more blood the second time around.
