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.
Using test strips that are expired can cause your results to be inaccurate. If your test strips have expired, throw them away and begin using a new vial of strips that are not expired. The expiration date is printed on every vial of test strips.
