Visit the video page and watch the 1-Click Lancing video to see how to set up, load and use the Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device. To change the drum, remove the black cap from the device by pulling it straight off. Insert a new drum—white end first—until it clicks into place. Replace the cap on the lancing device. The first lancet is ready to use.
We strongly recommend the use of a new, sterile lancet every time you test. The tip of a new needle is sharp and precisely formed to ensure gentle lancing, but the tip can become dull or bent if used more than once. What's more, a new lancet is sterile and hygienic.
