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.

Non-fingertip testing
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

Frequently Asked Questions

Meter care and batteries

Cleaning is simply removing dirt from the meter, while disinfecting refers to removing as much of the disease-causing microorganisms and other germs as possible.

Super Sani-Cloth® disposable, pop-up wipes are a convenient way to kill germs, and have been approved for cleaning and disinfecting the meter. You can buy them online from Amazon.com, Office Depot, Walmart and other retailers.

Be sure to clean the areas around slots and openings, while being careful not to get any moisture in them. You should also wipe down the entire meter surface, including the meter display.

Test strips, coding and control tests

This meter uses Accu-Chek Aviva Plus test strips.

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.

There's no need to code the meter, so you have fewer steps in testing.

Checking blood sugar

It's a small sample—just 0.6 microliter.

There are a few ways you can improve blood flow and make blood sugar checks easier:

  • Warm your fingers by washing with warm, soapy water, then rinse and dry completely.
  • Let your arm hang down at your side to increase blood flow to the fingertips.
  • Grasp finger just below the joint closest to the fingertip and "milk" or massage gently toward tip of finger, then squeeze for 3 seconds.
  • Use an Accu-Chek lancing device set to the right Comfort Dial setting for your skin type. Refer to your User's Guide for additional information.

You can count on quick, 5-second results.

Special features

With the Accu-Chek Aviva black meter, marking results with a pre-meal or post-meal marker can provide more information about how food affects your blood sugar, to aid in managing your numbers. You can also use a general marker to identify a non-fingertip test or post-exercise result. When you review the results in the meter's memory, these markers can help you remember what was different about the result.

To use a marker:

  1. When you perform a test you want to mark, do not remove the test strip.
  2. Press and release the right arrow key to toggle through the marker options. When you mark a pre-meal result, you can opt for a post-meal test reminder. The meter can beep 1 or 2 hours after you test to remind you—choose your preference in the set-up mode.
  3. When the marker you want to use appears, remove the test strip from the meter. Refer to your Owner's Booklet for more details.

You can set up to 4 test reminders per day. At the set reminder time, the meter will beep every 2 minutes, up to 3 times per reminder. The meter will not beep if the meter is on at the reminder time, or if a test has been run within 30 minutes of the reminder time.

Simply go into setup mode and turn the beeper off.
