Whatever type of Accu-Chek meter you have, cleaning and disinfecting are important for good maintenance.

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

When to clean and disinfect your Accu-Chek Meter:

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

What to use when cleaning and disinfecting your Accu-Chek Meter:

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.

The parts of your Accu-Chek meter you should keep clean:

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.

For any airline travel, it’s important that you carry a letter certifying that your blood glucose meter is in compliance with airline regulations. You can download it below.

Always ensure that your meter is set up correctly for travel, such as by turning off Bluetooth and turning on flight mode. For more information, check out this article all about traveling with diabetes.
