Blood glucose meter accuracy
When you check your blood sugar, it's easy to assume that the meter will give you an accurate result. However, a meter's accuracy depends upon a lot of factors.
Roche, the maker of Accu-Chek products, believes that you deserve a reliable meter and a test result you can act upon with confidence. That's why ensuring quality and accuracy has always been our top priority.
In an average week, our quality control process tests a combined total of over 60,000 Accu-Chek test strips for consistent accuracy.1
In addition, strict manufacturing processes ensure that our products meet uncompromising standards of quality. For example:
- For every lot of Accu-Chek test strips, containing millions of strips, at least 1 out of every 128 vials is tested for consistency of performance.
- Vials representative of the entire lot are tested a second time, with blood at a variety of glucose levels, to reflect a real-world environment.
- To ensure that all strips we release to the market meet our high quality standards, investigation and additional testing are performed should a test strip sample show a reading outside specific ranges.
Rest assured that Accu-Chek blood glucose monitoring systems provide reliable results you can trust.
