Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker

Frequently Asked Questions

Checking blood sugar

Yes, it can be used for alternate site testing (AST) by using the specially designed AST cap. Please refer to the user instructions for details of when it is appropriate to use AST and suitable puncture sites. We do not recommend AST with the Accu-Chek Aviva Expert bolus advisor system. To obtain an AST cap please contact the Accu-Chek Customer Careline.

Yes. The the finger pricker can be left attached to the Accu-Chek Mobile meter to collect blood or, if preferred, it can be detached and used as a standalone finger pricker. When on the go, most people prefer to have the finger pricker attached to the meter because it makes handling easier.

No. The Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker is intended for self-monitoring by an individual person only. It must not used to collect blood from more than one person as it does not incorporate any features to guard against cross infection.

This can be caused by several reasons:

  • The penetration depth is too shallow. Please select a higher penetration depth setting.
  • The Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker needs to be pressed firmly against the skin. Check if a lancet is inserted in the finger pricker.
  • Sometimes the blood does not appear immediately after lancing. Massaging the finger by gently squeezing it towards the fingertip helps to form a drop of blood.

The required penetration depth depends on the following:

  • The user’s skin: The softer and thinner their skin is, the shallower the depth setting should be.
  • The required blood sample: The more blood that is required, the higher the chosen setting.

The optimal penetration depth is a combination of both. Always start with a low setting when using the Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker for the first time. Dial to a higher setting until blood volume is right.

Changing lancets

Yes, the Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker can be used attached to or detached from the Accu-Chek Mobile meter, including lancet exchange.

No. Safety hooks are in place to prevent accidental reuse of a used drum. A used drum is easily recognised by the red stripes on the side.

No, for safety and hygiene reasons, once the lancet has been changed it is not possible to re-select a previous one.

It is highly recommend to use a new, sterile lancet every time a test is performed. This is based on hygienic considerations and to help avoid infection. Additionally, the tip of a new needle is sharp, with optimal form and cut and therefore ensures gentle lancing. This is diminished with multiple use. However, a lancet may be used more than once.

Never use a lancet that has been used by someone else, or share the finger pricker with anyone, to guard against cross infection.

General questions

No, the Accu-Chek FastClix lancets do not contain latex.

Lancing device care

Check the lancet display to see whether there are any numbers visible in the lancet display. If the number 1 is displayed, the last lancet has been used and the drum needs to be changed for a new one.

It is important to dispose of used lancets so they cannot cause injury. Whilst used Accu-Chek FastClix lancet drums can safely be disposed of in household waste, some local councils provide a sharps disposal service by supplying individuals with sharps bins and collecting them when they are full. Check with the local council which disposal services are available.
