What types of insulin can I use with my Accu-Chek insulin pump?

You can use U100 rapid-acting insulin with your Accu-Chek Spirit Combo or Accu-Chek Spirit insulin pump.

Is there a prefilled cartridge for my Accu-Chek insulin pump?

No – the Accu-Chek Spirit Combo and Accu-Chek Spirit insulin pumps use a sterile single-use 3.15 mL plastic cartridge. This provides the flexibility to choose the brand of insulin you want to use.

Are my Accu-Chek Combo meter and Accu-Chek Spirit insulin pump waterproof?

The Accu-Chek Spirit insulin pump can withstand brief accidental water contact such as rain, water splashes or accidental immersion. Ensure that before taking a bath or going into a whirlpool, shower or swimming pool, you disconnect and remove your pump.

However, your Accu-Chek Aviva Combo meter is not waterproof and must be kept dry at all times.

Can I use my Accu-Chek insulin pump while undergoing an MRI or x-ray?

No – you should never use your insulin pump near electromagnetic fields such as x-ray, computer tomography or MRI. Always make sure you disconnect and remove your pump and leave it outside of these areas.
