How do I use the Accu-Chek Softclix lancing device?

  1. First, you will need an Accu-Chek Softclix lancet.
  2. Remove the cap from the lancing device.
  3. Now insert the lancet into the lancet holder at the bottom of the device – push it all the way in until it clicks in place.
  4. Twist and remove the protective cap from the lancet to expose the needle.
  5. Place the cap back onto the lancing device, ensuring that the notch of the cap aligns with the mark on the device.
  6. Set the penetration depth to match your skin type, by turning the dial on the cap.
  7. To use the lancing device, prime it by pressing the plunger all the way down. The release button on the side of the device should turn yellow, indicating that it is ready to use.
  8. Press the release button to release the lancet.
  9. Be sure to replace the lancet every time you use your device, as they are not reusable and become unsterile after one use.
  10. To remove the used lancet, take off the cap from the lancing device and slide down the ejector over a sharps disposal bin. Then replace the cap.
