Abstract
: 

We compared glucose concentrations in whole blood and plasma from green turtles (Chelonia mydas) using a glucometer with plasma glucose analyzed by dry chemistry analyzer. Whole blood glucose (glucometer) and plasma glucose (dry chemistry) had the best agreement (rs=0.85) and a small negative bias (−0.08 mmol/L).
