Setting up and using your Accu-Chek Aviva meter and Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device

Accu-Chek Aviva

Frequently Asked Questions

Special features

Yes. Simply go into setup mode and turn the beeper off.

Control test values will not be in the user-accessible memory. However, they will be stored in the downloadable memory.

Up to 4 test reminders can be set per day, in 15-minute increments. At the set reminder time(s), a series of beeps will sound every 2 minutes, up to 3 times per reminder. The reminder beep will not occur if the meter is on at the set time, or if the user runs a test 15 minutes or less before the set reminder time. If the user turns on the meter while the reminder is sounding, the series of beeps for that reminder will stop.

Meter care and batteries

The Accu-Chek Aviva meter differentiates between control solution and blood because controls have higher salt concentration. However, if the control solution evaporates or concentrates on the tip of the bottle, it could cause the meter to display an incorrect control reading.

  1. Open the battery door on the back of the meter by pushing the tab in the direction of the arrow and pulling the door up.
  2. Remove the old battery. Insert the new battery with the (+) side facing up.
  3. Put the battery door back in place and snap it closed.

With the Accu-Chek Aviva meter turned on and the flashing strip symbol on the display, press and hold the ON/OFF button for about 4 seconds until "set-up" and the hour is flashing on the display.

Press and hold the ON/OFF button until the flashing strip symbol appears.

Test strips, coding and control tests


Only 3 other substances in the bloodstream (galactose1, Lipaemic samples (triglycerides)2 and ascorbic acid3) can interfere with the Accu-Chek Aviva test strip.

  1. Blood concentrations of galactose greater than 15mg/dL will cause overestimation of blood glucose results. Glucose values in neonates suspect for galactosemia should be confirmed by an alternate glucose methodology
  2. Lipemic samples (triglycerides) in excess of 1800 mg/dL may produce elevated results
  3. Intravenous administration or ascorbic acid that results in blood concentrations of ascorbic acid greater than 3 mg/dL will cause overestimation of blood glucose results. 

The target expiration date is 18 months from the date of manufacture.

Checking blood sugar

As soon as a sufficient amount of blood is applied to the test strip, the Accu-Chek Aviva meter automatically detects it and begins the test, even if some yellow is still visible in the window. The only time the user needs to apply more blood is when the blood drop symbol continues to flash in the display.

The Accu-Chek Aviva meter automatically recognises Accu-Chek Aviva control solutions, so running a control test is easier than ever. First, wipe the tip of the control bottle. Then put the meter on a flat surface, insert the test strip, and squeeze a drop of the control solution onto the front edge of the test strip. A result appears with a flashing “L”. Press one of the arrow keys once to indicate a Level 1 control test or twice to indicate Level 2. Press the ON/OFF button to set the level in the meter. The control result and “OK” alternate in the display if the result is in range.
