General Questions

Which penetration depth should be used?

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.
