General Questions

What if no blood is obtained at all?

There are several reasons this can happen: 

  • 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.
