I have the ReliON Ultima which has individually wrapped strips. Good for the person who isn't diabetic and this uses them more rarely.

All the meters that have strips in a "bottle" have the same basic issue - the reagents start to decay with exposure to air. This impacts accuracy over time, possibly severely. If you're diabetic and using 3-5+ of them a day, no big deal as the bottle is gone in a couple of weeks. If, on the other hand, you use it once every few MONTHS, well....

Thus you want individually-wrapped strips so they're sealed until use.
