How to perform a test with the new cassette.

You may have learned that you should hold your meter vertically during blood application. Now, with the new guidance tabs, just hold the meter in a way that lets you see the test area when applying blood. Place your finger gently on the guidance tabs so that the drop of blood comes into contact with the centre of the test area. That’s it!

Is there anything else I need to know?

The guidance tabs can only be used for taking a blood sample from the fingertips. They are not designed for taking a blood sample from other sites (AST).

Frequently Asked Questions

Checking blood sugar

The Gluc-DOR enzyme used has a negligible dependence on the atmospheric oxygen level. For this reason its altitude dependence is also extremely small. We guarantee full functionality up to 4,000m (13,123 feet).
The Accu-Chek Mobile meter stores up to 2,000 test results with date and time automatically.

Test Cassette

When a new test cassette is inserted, the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag informs the meter about the specific properties of the chemistry in this test cassette and all coding information is given. The meter turns on, the display check appears and the user is shown the information about the cassette's expiry date. The number of available tests is indicated then the main menu is displayed. The meter is now ready for testing.

No, it is not possible to insert the cassette the wrong way.

The Accu-Chek Mobile does not require cleaning if the system is handled as instructed. However if it is misused (e.g. the meter is held upside down when applying the blood or control solution, and/or the blood or control solution sample is bigger than 5 µL) the optic parts can become dirty. It is possible to clean the optic parts (refer to the instruction manual).

If a standard test cassette is inserted in to the meter, the meter checks regularly when the cassette was inserted and calculates the use-by period from this. Each test cassette must be used up within 90 days (use-by period). If a standard test cassette is inserted into the meter, the use-by period is calculated from the date when the cassette was first placed in the meter. This date is stored in the cassette.

The meter also checks whether the expiry date of the cassette has been reached. The expiry date is shown on the test cassette box.

If either of the two dates – use-by period or expiry date – is exceeded, the cassette has expired and further tests cannot be performed with this test cassette.

If a test is started and the cassette is going to expire shortly or has already expired, the meter will inform you of this.

A notification relating to the expiry of the test cassette appears 10 days before it expires, subsequent notifications appear 5, 2 and 1 day(s) before expiry.

If the test cassette has expired, a message will ask the user to replace it.

If the test cassette you removed still has unused tests and is still within the "use by" date, you can reinsert the cassette into the meter. The meter recognises the cassette, the number of available tests and the expiry date.

Yes, you can still use the former cassette until it expires.

Meter care and batteries

The Accu-Chek Mobile system is delivered with the time and date set at the factory. Power is supplied by a 3rd internal battery. During storage a protective foil prevents the 2 AAA batteries losing any power and the settings are preserved using the internal battery power.

To activate the AAA batteries, pull out the protective battery foil and they will take over from the internal battery.

High energy batteries last approximately 500 tests or 1 year.

The number of tests may be reduced when the measurement frequency is extremely low (one test per week) or the meter is left unused. Setting the display brightness to level 3 and the beep volume to level 4 or 5 or using the acoustic mode permanently also impacts battery life time negatively. The number of tests may be improved when the test frequency is high.

The stored values and settings remain saved in the meter while the batteries are changed or if the meter is stored without batteries.

The meter has an in built back-up battery. This provides the power when there are no batteries inserted. The back-up battery lasts about 2 years and cannot be replaced if it is empty. An empty back-up battery has no effect on the functioning of the meter.

If the back-up battery is empty the user has 10 minutes to change the batteries. If more than ten minutes elapses the meter forgets the time and date. When this happens, dashes appear on the display instead of the time and date. In this situation the time and date will have to be set again manually.

Yes, you can change the AAA batteries whilst a cassette is inserted.
