How to use the Accu-Chek Aviva meter
Checking blood glucose
The Accu-Chek Aviva Plus system is designed to give you confidence in the accuracy of your blood sugar results. Its easy, quick-fill test strip fills quickly at any point along the tip with only a tiny, 0.6 microliter drop.
Put a test strip into the meter and verify that the code number on the display matches the code number on the test strip container. Test strip and blood drop symbols will appear on the display.
Use the lancing device to prick the side of a fingertip. Gently squeeze the fingertip to produce a small drop of blood.
Touch the drop of blood to the tip of the test strip—do not apply to top of the strip. A flashing hourglass lets you know when enough blood has been applied. Your result will appear in the display.
To check blood sugar from a non-fingertip site, place the clear or gray plastic cap on the lancing device and press until it clicks. Firmly press the cap against the selected site and click the release button. Continue to apply pressure to the selected site for a couple of seconds. When you have enough blood, apply it to the test strip. The measurement starts automatically.1
