@mustard I used to find the stab yourself with the monolet immensely superior to the original blue autolet …. sorry GUILLOTINE! I think you might have me on the path lab stuff, my earliest blood testings that I recall were done with the colour coded bottles. HUGE drop of blood on, wait 30s, wipe, wait 30s, guess the colour Then again I do remember my parents and grandparents saving for months to buy me my first blood meter which about bankrupt them I think. Mid 80s and it must of been over £100 back then. Jeez diving down memory lane here, I’ll shut up now!
