How to use the Accu-Chek Nano meter

Checking blood glucose
The Accu-Chek Nano SmartView system is designed to give you confidence in the accuracy of your blood sugar results. Easy-to-handle test strips and a bright yellow dosing window make it easy to sample a tiny, 0.6 microliter drop.

Put a test strip into the meter in the direction of the arrows. The meter will beep and a flashing blood drop symbol 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 blood drop to the front edge of the yellow window of the test strip. A beep and flashing hourglass let you know when enough blood has been applied. Your result will appear in the display.

Alternate site testing
To check blood sugar from a non-fingertip site, place the gray plastic Accu-Chek FastClix cap on the lancing device and press until it clicks. Firmly press the clear cap against the selected site on your palm 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

No. All test results, diary information, and settings are saved in the meter memory when the batteries are replaced.

Clean and disinfect your meter once a week, or any time blood gets on the meter. You should also clean the meter before allowing anyone else to handle it.

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.

Special features

The meter is compatible with all Accu-Chek data management tools, including the Accu-Chek 360° diabetes management system.

Once set, test reminders will beep every 2 minutes up to 3 times. It will turn off when you insert a test strip or press any button. To turn the beeper off all the way, refer to the set-up instructions in your Owner's Booklet.

Test strips, coding and control tests

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.
