Slide and release the power button to turn the meter on and advance a strip. A test strip will automatically emerge, and a flashing test strip and 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.

Hold the meter so the test strip points down. Touch and hold the drop of blood to the black notch on the end of the test strip—do not apply to the top of the strip or window. A flashing hourglass indicates when enough blood has been applied. If necessary, more blood can be applied within 25 seconds. Your result will appear in the display.

Slide and release the power button to turn the meter off and eject the used strip.

Alternate site testing

To check blood sugar from a non-fingertip site, place the clear plastic ACCU-CHEK Softclix Plus cap on the lancing device and press until it clicks. Firmly press the clear cap against the selected site and click the release button. Continue to apply pressure to the selected site for a couple of seconds. You can watch the drop of blood form through the clear cap. When you have enough blood, apply it to the test strip. The measurement starts automatically.1

1Talk with your healthcare professional before deciding if alternate site testing is right for you.

Collapse AllExpand All

Checking blood sugar

How can I make it easier to get a drop of blood?

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

  1. Warm your fingers by washing with warm, soapy water, then rinse and dry completely.
  2. Let your arm hang down at your side to increase blood flow to the fingertips.
  3. Grasp finger just below the joint closest to the fingertip and "milk" or massage gently toward tip of finger, then squeeze for 3 seconds.
  4. 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.

 

How long does the system take to check blood sugar?

You can count on quick, 5-second results.

How large is the sample size for a blood sugar check?

It's a small sample—just 1.5 microliters.

Can I double dose this blood glucose meter?

Yes. You have 25 seconds to reapply a blood sample. To ensure an adequate sample is applied the first time, hold the finger to the black notch on the test strip until the hourglass appears in the display, indicating an adequate sample has been applied.

Can I use a blood sample from other areas on my body?

Yes. In addition to the fingertip, the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus meter system can be used with blood samples from the palm, forearm, upper arm, thigh or calf.1

1 Talk with your healthcare professional before deciding if alternate site testing is right for you.

 

How do I run a blood sugar check on a non-fingertip site?

Your ACCU-CHEK lancing device has a special clear plastic cap designed for testing on other areas of the body.1 Note: Do not use the clear cap when testing at the fingertip.

Follow the steps for fingertip testing, with a few differences:

  • Use the clear cap instead of the black plastic cap.
  • You may need a deeper setting. Try 3 for palm testing or 5-1/2 for forearm, upper arm, thigh or calf testing. (These are suggested settings, yours may differ.)
  • Press the opening of the clear cap firmly against a fleshy area of the non-fingertip site. Press the lancing device up and down in a slow pumping motion to assist the flow of blood.
  • Keep steady pressure on the area, then press and release the plunger. Do not be afraid to apply pressure to the area with the lancing device to assist the flow of blood. Continue to press the cap against the site for a few seconds to allow blood to come to the surface.

1Talk with your healthcare professional before deciding if alternate site testing is right for you.

 

Test strip drum and coding

Which test strip drums should I use with the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus system?

The ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus system is compatible with ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus and ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drums.

Note that the ACCU-CHEK Compact system—the one that does not come with an integrated lancing device—can only be used with ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drums. Inserting an ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus drum into an ACCU-CHEK Compact meter will result in an error message.

Do I need to code the blood glucose meter?

There's no need for the user to code the meter, so you have fewer steps in testing.1

1User is not required to code the meter.

How does the test strip drum work?

See how to insert a new test drum.

The drum of 17 preloaded test strips eliminates struggling with containers and test strips each time. The system sets a new standard in convenience by:

  • Advancing and ejecting diabetes test strips automatically, eliminating the need to handle individual test strips
  • Integrating diabetes test strips into a load-and-go drum, so you don't need to carry a separate container

 

How do I open the drum door?

See how to insert a new test drum.

With the meter off, place your thumb or finger under the ridge just to the right of the test strip slot. Press upward to open the drum door. Be sure to lift up on the door to open it. Do not push the door in, as this can make it more difficult to open.

How can I tell how many diabetes test strips I have left in the drum?

On the back of the blood glucose meter, you'll see a small window with a number showing through. This number indicates how many unused strips are left in the test drum. When the test drum is empty, a dot will show through the window. This is your signal to discard the test drum and insert a new drum.

Other ways to see how many test strips are left in the drum:

  • After completing a blood sugar check, while the meter is still on and the strip is still sticking out of the meter, press and hold the test (on / off) button for several seconds. The number of strips remaining in the drum will be shown on the meter display. When the button is released, the meter will turn off.
  • Or, while in the memory mode, press and hold the test (on / off) button for several seconds. The meter display will show the number of strips remaining. When the button is released, the meter will turn off.

Can I use the same drums used with the ACCU-CHEK Compact system?

The ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus system can use ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus and ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drums. However, the ACCU-CHEK Compact system—the one that does not have an integrated lancing device—uses only ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drums.

Can I reinsert an unused strip?

No, you cannot reinsert an unused strip. You must discard any strip that has been removed from the test drum.

What happens if I use expired 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.

Display

Why is the system easier to read?

The bright, easy-to-read display on the latest ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus system uses OLED technology, instead of a back-lit screen. The numbers and symbols are self-illuminated in bold color, making them easier to read, even in low light. This means you get the brightest display compared to back-lit meters.

Can I adjust the brightness of the display?

Yes. The second step in the setup mode allows you to adjust the brightness by pressing the S button. Choose 1 of 3 brightness levels with the M button.

How can I make the display easier to read in bright sunlight?

While direct sunlight does make the OLED display difficult to read, you can shade the display with your hand to see your results.

Lancing device

How do ACCU-CHEK lancing devices help reduce pain?

ACCU-CHEK lancing devices all use technology that minimizes side-to-side motion for less skin tearing. Plus, the way our beveled lancets are precisely designed and manufactured allows for smoother entry. Finally, each device offers 11 customizable depth settings to help match your skin type and help eliminate blood glucose testing pain.

Can I detach the lancing device for a blood sugar check?

It's up to you. You can check blood sugar with the detachable ACCU-CHEK Softclix Plus lancing device either attached to or detached from the meter.

How do I use the lancing device?

See how easy it is to use.

The ACCU-CHEK Softclix Plus lancing device features 1 button to prime and fire the lancet.

  1. Remove the black cap by using your thumb and finger to pull on the recessed area. Insert a lancet until it clicks, then remove the protective cover.
  2. Line up the notches on the black cap and snap it back into place. Twist the cap to set your lancet depth.
  3. Press the plunger on the lancing device, like a pen, all the way down until it stops.
  4. Hold the lancing device against the side of your fingertip, then press and release the plunger.
  5. When you have completed the blood sugar check and released the diabetes test strip, take off the black cap to remove the lancet.
  6. Hold the meter so the lancet points downward. Press the plunger to release the lancet into a puncture-proof container. Line up the notches and snap the black cap back on.

Meter care and batteries

How do I set the time and date on my meter?

Your meter comes with the batteries already installed and a preset time and date. You may need
to change the time to your time zone.

To change the time:

  1. With the meter off, press S to enter the set mode. When the beeper symbol is displayed with your current selection flashing, press S twice to reach the year with the last two numbers of the year flashing. Press M to change the year. Press S to set your selection.
  2. The 12-hour or 24-hour time format appears. Press M to change the time format. Press S to set your selection.
  3. The hour flashes. Press M to change the hour. If you select the 12-hour time format, continue to press M to select a.m. or p.m. Press S to set your selection.
  4. Repeat this process until the minutes, month and day are set.

How long will the batteries last in my meter?

Your batteries should last for approximately 1,000 tests.

What types of batteries are used?

The meter uses 2 AAA batteries.

Can I use rechargeable batteries?

Yes. However, rechargeable batteries normally provide slightly lower power, so they may not provide as many tests per charge, and you may not be guaranteed a full 50 tests remaining when the battery icon appears.

Is the memory lost when the batteries are removed?

When the batteries are changed, no memory is lost. Time and date will also be retained if the batteries are replaced within 2 minutes.

How do I clean my meter and how often?

Your ACCU-CHEK meter does not require any internal cleaning. If meter has blood on the outside, you may clean it by wiping with a soft cloth that has been slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol) or a solution of 1 part bleach and 9 parts water. Do not get moisture into the test strip opening.

Where can I find out what an error code or screen message is telling me?

Visit your meter's Screen Messages page for a list of messages and definitions or download the Owner's Booklet for your meter.

Control tests

What control solution should I use?

ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus and ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drums use different control solutions.

  • Use ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus clear control solution with ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus test strip drums.
  • Use ACCU-CHEK Compact blue control solution with ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drums.

What are control tests?

A control test using the your meter's specific control solution ensures that you are performing tests correctly and receiving accurate results.

Testing with control solution is just like a blood sugar check, except you fill the window on the test strip with a drop of control solution instead of blood.

Run a control test:

  • Before using your meter for the first time
  • When you open a new vial of test strips
  • If you leave the cap off the vial of test strips
  • If you drop the meter
  • Whenever your result does not agree with the way you feel
  • Whenever you want to check the way you are performing your blood sugar checks
  • If you have repeated a test, and the blood sugar result is still lower or higher than expected
  • When you want to check the performance of the meter or test strips

Does the system detect control solution?

If you are using an ACCU-CHEK Compact test strip drum and ACCU-CHEK Compact blue control solution, the system automatically detects the control solution.

The system will not automatically detect the clear control solution used with ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus test strip drums. You must manually flag the measurement when you run a control test.

General questions

Are ACCU-CHEK blood glucose meters covered by insurance?

All ACCU-CHEK products are covered on most healthcare plans and Medicare1 to help you save money on test strips.

1Coverage may vary based on your condition and other factors.

 

Will changes to Medicare Part B affect coverage of ACCU-CHEK products?

Rest assured, ACCU-CHEK products are still covered by Medicare Part B.1 To preserve your choice and ensure you're not switched to a low-quality product, ask your healthcare provider to always write a branded prescription for ACCU-CHEK test strips. Click here for more details.

1Coverage may vary based on your condition and other factors.

How should my meter checks compare with lab results?

Because your monitor and lab tests don't measure the same thing, these numbers are likely to vary. Lab tests generally test plasma, but a meter uses whole blood. As a result, even if you take both tests at the exact same time, your meter is likely to show a lower number than the lab results. This is perfectly acceptable, and your healthcare professional will already be factoring this in.

Are there any conditions where ACCU-CHEK blood glucose systems may not be suitable?

Yes, certain substances can interfere with some ACCU-CHEK blood glucose systems and cause falsely high results. For example, if you use peritoneal dialysis solutions containing icodextrin (such as EXTRANEAL®), take certain immunoglobulin therapies that contain maltose (such as Octagam® 5%, WinRho® SDF Liquid or HepaGam B™) or use other therapies that contain or metabolize to maltose (such as Orenica®, ADEPT® or BEXXAR®), your glucose reading will be inaccurate.

The ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus test strip used with an ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus meter, the ACCU-CHEK Aviva Plus test strip used with the ACCU-CHEK Aviva meter and the ACCU-CHEK SmartView test strip used with the ACCU-CHEK Nano meter deliver accurate test results in the presence of maltose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by This product has a good test strip drum concept. Product is ok, only problem is the length of strip that is expose to collect blood for test, much too short! It is very difficult to get close to blood with strip. It's takes quite a few maneuvers to obtain reading. I like the drum concept, but the strip needs to come out further. March 20, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by THE BEST!!!!!! i've used them all…single strip, 10 strip disc, 17 strip drum…and the winner is the compact plus. i hate messing with the single strips. i can't believe anyone still uses this outdated and outmoded method. the 10 strip disc was the first meter i ever used and it spoiled me, so when i tried the single strip meters, i was truly underwhelmed. then i tried the compact plus drum meter…and i've never looked back. it's easy to use, only have to change the drum every few days, and the softclix lancets are virtually painless. i think you'd have to be crazy to use any other meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is simple to use and very accurate all meters should be like this one, no touching the strips no fuss with the needles, its always ready. load it and forget it. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome meter. I have neuropathy in my hands and not having to mess with the strips is a great help for me. Not sure how long I have been using this meter but when I started it was blue and now they are black. Would not give up this meter. I am finding it harder to get the strips and lancets on my insurance but I'll use this meter insurance or not. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very go0d. test strips could be a little cheaper. Medicare will only cover one per day March 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I wish larger meter Capacity I really wish this meter would flash End at time that last strip was used Along with a stack strip cartridge of 50 strips was loaded in at a time without the motor to eject An had a slide lever on side to advance the next strip less battery power would be needed March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Very easy to use This product is very easy to use and understand. I have used it several years without any problems. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of use I have used the accu-chek plus compact for 10 years. I've tried other meters but I always come back to this one. Everything is in one unit, test strips and lancing device. The drum is convenient because there is no touching of the strips and it tells you how many are left after each use. Mostly importantly it only requires a small blood sample. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenience I have been using the Accu-Chek Compact Plus for over 4 years and would never go back to the small meters with separate strips in those foil wrappers. It's just too frustrating to try to grasp, open and insert those teeny strips. Plus, everything is all in one - no searching through my purse for the strips and the meter. The readout is legible - light details on a black background. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works excellent and a support group is great the only thing about it does I don't like is that it doesn't like the cold. March 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by I would not recommend this product Requires too much blood for test strips. If one does not have enough blood on strip, meter will beep E-2 or E-4. One has to insert another new strip. I test 4 times a day. Strips are very expensive. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is all together this product is so together. I love my accucheck compact plus blood monitor. everything is right there. very convienent. March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AccuChek Compact Plus Love the meter its always right, and don't have to change strips every time. Wouldn't want any other kind. .Has large light up face to see results for easy reading. Easy loading too.Has a lot of different features too. Thank you for such a great meter.Wouldnt want any other kind.They are dependable. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accu-Check I got my first meter long ago. It was an Accu-check compact also, but I recently got the Accu-check Compact Plus. I love the ease of use. I love the short time it needs for processing the sample. The Compact Plus has been very accurate. I really like that Accu-check Compact Plus is all complete. The lancet attaches and come off fairly easy. this product has easy to read and understandable directions for setting date, the time and stores all the data for several months of testing. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by wonderful product I wouldn't trade this meter for a meter that Isn't compact.this meter is fabulous for that reason. I have had mine for 5 years. March 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cannot find how to change to Daylight Savings Time I got an email from ACCU-CHEK telling me of the upcoming time change. I clicked on the Compact plus link and could not find how after 30 minutes. Not very User friendly in my humble opinion. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the one-ness of it I love the fact that I only have to keep track of one item...and the drum has 17 tests....you don't have to worry about dropping a strip or touching it or anything...it is automatic...love the fact that if you have any problem just call the 800 number on the back and they are all so helpful and courteous....no complaints at all, ever. March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Meter I Have Ever Used My left hand is numb all the time and this meter is wonderful. I can use it with just one hand and don't have to fool with test strips. I have used another "one hand" meter before but this is by far the best meter on the market. I actually keep two all the time. One in my kitchen and one in my bedroom. Great product so I hope it will always be available for purchase. February 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Accu-Chek Compact Plus Meter I absolutely love the Accu-Chek Compact Plus Meter! I love how the lancet device is attached, and the testing strips come in a 17 test strip drum. No more fumbling for or dropping a test strip! This meter is so easy to use. Most of all it's just flat out convenient. When I'm out, I can test my BG so quickly. Everything is right there! Love it! February 26, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I got my first one years ago and won't use any other meter. I hate handling strips and carrying a bulky case with strips and a separate lancet. I just throw my unit into my purse and I'm ready to go. I get offers for free meters all the time but I refuse to give up my all-in-one Compact Plus!! February 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for Teachers to use at school! Oftentimes, I need to check my sugar level quickly (between classes).... This device prevents students from questioning my medical condition as they've never caught me in the process of checking my glucose level-- Thanks for the efficiency of this product! January 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of use I love the fact that it carries 17 in the barrel, there is no fumbling of test strips, just hit the button and a new strip emerges. You can carry 3 drums of strips in the case for a total of 68 strips, that, is ease of use. January 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best! I have been using accucheck compact for about 15 yrs. and love it. I also use a contin.blood glucose meter. Between the 2 they have saved my life many times. The accucheck is the easiest to use and whenever I drive anyway I keep one in my purse so easy, so fast. Between the drum and attached lancet--I won't trade. January 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easiest, Best Meter Going! I have had all kind of meters. As a former non-compliant patient WHO HAS HAD 5 EYE OPERATIONS AND HEART ISSUES AS WELL AS END STAGE RENAL FAILURE. This is the best meter going. Easy to load,NO CODING! Just a Great meter. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The product is okay... However it isn't easy to determine how many test strip I have remaining in the drum. And sometimes upon replacing the drum, the date and time stamp has to be reset. That's a pain. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest Meter on the market today. This meter is extremely easy to use with many useful features. The overall size of the meter is perfect and fits comfortably in hand. The meter has a large easy to read digital display compared to the smaller sized meters that are available. January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Loved this Meter... I loved this meter till my Dr gave me a Nano, but this meter is so nuch easier the the Nano to use. I like the needle being very compact and it is within the Meter for easier ability to travel. January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The ease of just loading a drum in the machine is one of the great features of this product. Having the compact system or as I call it "my kit" is the best possible feature. The ease of loading the drum, having the lancing device and the case to hold it are some of the reasons I love my January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the smartest way to test blood sugar ever! The best feature of the ACCU-CHECK compact system is the drum system with preloaded test strips! Other blood sugar monitors use a separate container of test strips that have to be handled and then inserted into the monitor. In so doing, contamination of the strip is possible because it is exposed to the outside environment. Additionally,these separated actions are awkward if a person has any kind of fine motor skill impairment, such as arthritis or MS. All testing monitors should be this way! To have other systems seems awkward and contains too much room for errors. January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very convenient sometimes loses date and time & must be reset after barrel change January 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Meter, BUT I like this new meter better than my old one, but with two exceptions. First the angle on the top of the lancer is a little steeper than the previous one, making it easy for your finger to slip off of it. Second the meter has a cutout area on the opening door where the strip comes out that makes it harder to see the strip when you are trying to use it and stick the strip into your blood droplet. January 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I've used this meter for years, it's great! My only regret is that it's NOT compatible with Windows 8.1. When will that occur?? January 8, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by I prefer the Aviva in a heart beat! It is not as compact as the Aviva. Hard to open to install the preloaded test strips. The worse thing is appling the blood to the test strip. The Aviva is just so much more user friendly than the Compact Plus. Please give me back my Aviva. January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easiest To Use When I was first diagnosed with Type II Diabetes I was using a different brand of tester. It was hard to use and did not read all the time and IU got so frustrated I stopped testing. My Doctor was very upset also. Then a family friend told me about this meter being so easy to use. So I bought it and tried it and have been testing and monitoring as I should. This monitor is so easy to use. I am very happy with it. January 7, 2014

Much more accurate Blood test than Previous Model from a different Company. December 29, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent products. I have been using Accu-Chek for years, and I love them. I presently own the compact plus and I am trying to upgrade to the Nano. I want the talking meter, however, I love the drum for the strips. It makes life so much easier, since I just must stick myself. I must also look into getting the lancet pen that holds the drum. Please consider inventing a meter that holds the drum as well, AND talks. :) Thanks for a job well done. December 24, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by A great product I like this device because of its ease of use. I have arthritis and sometimes it's difficult to handle the strips. I dropped my Accu-Chek Compact Plus and broke it, so now I am using a meter that I have to insert the strips myself. December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top of the line testing Being diabetic, I have used several different devices over the years to check my blood sugar. When I discovered the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus I knew that I would never need any other machine. It is just so much easier to use and maintain than other monitoring devices, that I will never use anything else. December 19, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy, fast reliable I have used this product for several years with no issues. I am on my second one, only because my doctor thought it was a good idea to replace the old on as it was about 7 years old. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great This is the first product I got after I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I have tried different meters but none that worked as easy as the compact plus. December 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Compact is a self contained product. Even though the compact is a little bigger than other modals, it has an excellent light screen for day light use and in the time of power failures. It is self contained for people on the go. The strips are inside the Compact and the lance device is connected and for the most part painless. I have three of them; one is in the office, one is at home and one I carry with me. December 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by EASY TO READ, USE THIS PRODUCT IS DESIGNED WELL.. DRUMS LOAD WITHOUT ISSUE AND THE TEST STRIPS DO LIKEWISE. I HAVE USED THE METER FOR OVER 2 YEARS.. I THINK.. I'VE RECOMMENED IT TO OTHERS. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this meter because you don't have to touch the test strips. This is the best meter I have used and I have been diabetic since 1996. The test strip drum feature means less handling of the strips and not having to insert each one before testing. December 18, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I love the drum feature. I have been using this product for many years and just recently compared it with other meters; my Dr.'s meter, the ER meter, the ICU meter and two of my friends' meters and without fail, my meter strips show 18 to 20 point less than the others. This is not acceptable to me even though it falls within the guidelines. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Compact plus is the Easiest, Fastest Meter to use. The Compact plus is Reliable, Quick, fast and done all in 1 step. The easiest meter to use hands down. No fumbling with strips. no dropping strips on the car seat or floor. Just pick it up push the button click the lance, test dispose and done. 20 seconds flat. It's my choice for a meter. December 17, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Interface They con you to buy the Accuchek 360 download interface so that you can use the management tools. However they have no interest in upgrading it to work with Windows 8. Preferring to get you to buy another system altogether. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great when Neuropathy is a problem I found that I kept dropping test strips & could not just get 1 out of vial. This works great all together no searching thru purse for strips, lancing device & meter. With drum very easy to use when you have periphial neuropathy December 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but could be better I leke everything about the meter but the lancett could be improved. With this meter you use drums and not have to deal taking a strip out and putting it into the machine. I wished the test strips were like that too then I would have given it a five star ratting. December 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of use I like that the lancing device is attached to the tester as well as the preloaded test strips. I get low blood sugars and can't be hunting around for everything when I need to test fast. December 11, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ok It works well but is REALLY big & bulky! I like the multiclix lancing device better than the one that comes with it. December 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ACCU CHECK COMPACT PLUS I've used this product for the past 4 or 5 years and am so thankful for it. I have had two carpel tunnel surgeries, three trigger fingers released via surgical means, and still have difficulty manipulating tiny to small objects. My favorite features of the product are #1, the drum test strips...no handling of an individual strip, including throwing away; simply hold over trash and press release button. #2, the attachable lance. Mine currently is broken and I'm using a borrowed one; makes me especially miss mine!! And, I would be remiss is I did not mention the ease of reading the screen due to it's brightness. Only "wish" is that it's design could be revamped for size of product, so that it is not so bulky. December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Great product, easy to use, accurate and you get your results immediately. December 4, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by this is a very inconvenient and unreliable product! My insurance company forced me to use this and I hate it. The tab does not extend out far enough, is too slow to suck up the blood and uses way more blood than others. The lancet device appears impossible to detach and the web site and printed instructions do not tell me how to remove it. Using the device to puncture opposite hands is difficult at best. There is no advantage that I can see to the canister of strips versus inserting a test strip at use. Accuracy is terrible. Mine read 77 three mornings in a row. I knew this was wrong compared to how I felt and cross check against a more accurate brand. I am throwing this thing in the trash and buying my test strips out of pocket until I can get another brand. Terrible bulky design!!! December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine Love the convenience of the multi-strip. I use the multi-clix lancet device instead of the attached one stick device. The attached lancet wasn't as easy for me due to arthritis in hands. I've used this for about 3 years. It does take more blood for the test strip. I also bought a hard shell case to carry in to prevent damage to the device. Would recommend the multi device over any others I have seen. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is my preferred choise. This product is easy to use, easy to read, and reasonably priced. After trying other similar products, I much prefer this brand and this model. November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by dont change a thing except the amount of blood for a test Dr. gave me a different meter to use . I used it for a week and definitely going back to my accu check compact I love how the lancet is connected and the fact that I don't have to put a strip in every time. It is so much easier and with me that's what its all about. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact Plus great if you test LOTS! I've tried several meters and I have now had my Accu-Chek Compact Plus for several years. I test pre & post meals, plus fasting. This meter uses a 17 strip drum - wonderful to not have to insert a new strip every time I test! I use the 1st strip for control testing every new drum, and still have strips to take me through 2 plus days. I highly recommend this specific meter if you test a lot, or if you just get tired of inserting strips. It also has easy read back features and stores a ton of readings. My endocrinologist has no problem uploading the info on it, either. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product I have used this meter for about 3 years and loved it but lately its been giving me false reading I take it on my right hand and its 134 and on my left hand 345 could you please send me a new meter November 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good products I love this meter it is very good it very easy to use, it did not hurt like the other one before November 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This meter is the best on the market I have trouble with my fingers and grasping those tiny tabs is virtually impossible. The Accu-Chek meter with it's drum for test strips is just what the doctor ordered. For those with trouble with their hands I would strongly recommend the Accu-Chek Compact Plus! The only problem I have is the Lancing device, I have to use an alternate site lancer. November 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by MUST HAVE LOVE how I can insert a drum of test strips and not touch a single strip, thereby eliminating the chance of getting anything on it and ruining test results. I would say it's not as easy to know when there's enough blood as the test strip doesnt "show" the blood going into the strip like some do, but that's a small price to pay. I will also be switching to the multi clix lancing device since I am now hooked on not having to touch anything. It saves time and is just so easy!!! November 1, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by this is a great meter almost This is my third meter and by far the easiest To use: almost anyway; the only problem I have with it is the fact it needs a small light to light up the teststrip area when its not real bright out. I have a hard time seeing the blood droplet and the end of the teststrip Put a small light in the end and make it perfect I'd buy another today if you put the light in! And it would get the fifth star... Adding a light would get it a 5 in "ease of use" also October 21, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Most convenient on the market The one thing I like best about this meter is the "all-in-one" feature. I love not having to lug around a case with a separate meter, lance and test strips. Yeah, it's bigger than any other meter but when you add in the all the other stuff the total package is smaller in total than most. I test a LOT so the 17 strip drum lasts only 2-3 days but still a lot better tan individual strips. October 5, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Product on the Market I have been using the AccuChek Compact Plus since it was first introduced. Convenience is unmatched. I take it everywhere I go and with my big, artheritic, clumsy fingers, loading individual test strips was a problem. This device makes testing fast and easy. I would highly recommend it. September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product, really--no need to try anything else All in one feature for the on-the-go person, pre-loaded strips popping into position at the press of a button, accuracy of meter and precession of low pain lancing device; what more can you ask for? on top of that, the best is to have an ACCU-CHEK card that allows the purchase of the most accurate test strip available for an unbelievable price--it's just "stunning" September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by PRODUCT IS AWESOME I have big hands and this mete makes it very easy to use. No coding and quick response times on readings. Lancet device clips on the side and being able to scan back through readings is a plus. Just wish Blue Cross would pay some of the cost on the strips. They refuse to pay anything unless i switch meters. SO i pay out of pocket cause i refuse to change September 26, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it being all together Only complaint I have is you go thru the strips quickly. I cant afford to take mine as often as I should because of that. Low income people such as myself would have to agree. September 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Use but Keep Dry I like this meter. It is easy to use because the lancing device and the reading device are all in one unit. But DO NOT store it in the bathroom because it does not like humidity. Since I learned that I keep it in the bedroom and it works just great! September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the "all in one" I have had the opportunity to try different meters but Accu-Chek Compact is THE best, easy to use and carry. The is the only meter I will use. September 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This is a Great Product The only reason I did not give it a 5 star overall rating is because sometimes it requires more blood than other meters. Other than that I think this is a great product. I love the testing strips in the drum. It's been reliable and dependable for the years that I have owned it. Also I couldn't get my testing supplies consistently if not for the help of my testing strips discount card. September 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accu-check Active I am using Accu-check Compact Plus since about 4 years, I moved back to my country last year, cannot get test strips here, had to buy a new acc-check meter Active this time, don't think is as quick as the one I had, don't feel comfortable using it, it is absolutely like a small toy, wish could get the test strips here over in Mauritius.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EASY I JUST LOVE THIS METER; IT IS SO EASY TO USE AND THAT DRUM SURE SAVES LOSING STRIPS DOWN THE DRAIN. September 11, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Is not accurate This met was 20 below my lab test and I have the test kit September 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by My previous tester worked better in a couple of ways Comparing the latest model of Accu-chek Compact with the model I was previously using, I have found the latest model doesn't work quite as well for me as the previous model. I find it is more difficult to see the area on the test strip where the blood needs to go on the current model. I find that I blindly stick my finger into the area of the strip and hope I hit the spot where the blood needs to go. The previous model seemed to be more open and visibile in that area. I have also had some trouble with the switch that ejects the used test strip. Sometimes I have to press the switch two or three times to get it to eject the used test strip. September 5, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is amazing!! This little meter has taken us out of the age of the dinosaurs! No more large samples of blood while trying to open the bottle and get a strip out while the blood drips down your finger. The "drum" is amazing! September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product I would definitely recommend. I love the fact that the test strips only need a drop of blood. September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by EAZY TO USE love this meter - best feature over any other is the preloaded drum. When blood sugars are low I shake badly making it hard to load others. This feature alone won me over as a loyal user !! September 4, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and compact This is the best system available as of now. It is very easy to use. The memory functions are very useful when you have to refer to previous values. The lancing device is very simple to use and less painful than others. August 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by it is very precise and accurate. sometimes I have to adjust the depth of the lancing device between 3 and 3.5. to much blood or not enough. August 23, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS PRODUCT DO NOT HAVE TO TOUCH STRIPS,PEN IS ATTACHED TO THE SIDE ,DO NOT HAVE TO LOOK FOR IT EVERY THING RIGHT IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND,JUST WONDERFUL August 21, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by WHAT A MISTAKE!! Won't be buying again I have preferred the Accu-Check Compact Plus for years, but the new one I got today, had no case to carry it in the box. So, I wanted to order one, and they only sell cheap, flimsy cases. If you get some of the others, you can at least order nice cases. As soon as all my strips are gone, I will be changing meters. August 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product works. This is the only tool I have used and it is much less difficult than I had assumed. When I have been checked by my physician it has been in line with what the device has indicated. August 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has amazing features, but... ... One aspect I do not understand is why the Multiclix lancets (with 6 strip barrels), are not typically sold as an option to the Compact Plus. Understand that many might prefer one comprehensive testing device for convenience, and connecting the lancet device with the meter itself would provide proper storage between uses. That said, I absolutely LOVE the drum of test strips! Using the Multiclix lancets is just a natural extension of this concept. In other words, I prefer to use drums of test strips AND drums of lancets. The fact that a Softclix lancet is connected to the meter itself means little to me because of all of the other, much more cumbersome, devices, equipment, etc. that I must constantly carry for my pump, CGM, etc. August 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The BEST for arthritics ! Love it !! Until I discovered Accu-Chek Compact Plus, I felt like a shakey person with winter gloves on, trying to get one strip out of that tube. Inserting it into the tiny little slot was an impossible challenge. Then I found this wonderful drum loaded glucometer. My life has changed. I no longer dread testing..just press one button ...down comes the strip. Press another button..lancet done, move unit an inch sideways, pick up blood sample...DONE !!! 5 seconds to read out ! What a joy to find a glucometer that my hands can handle!! Thank You Accu-Chek ! August 15, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Only meter I will ever use. This is the best meter I have ever used. The strips are in the drum. You never touch the strips. No loading a single strip each time you test. The strips and machine need no coding. Compact to fit in a purse or briefcase. August 14, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I like this meter because I don't have to worry about looking for test strips or lancing tool. August 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is quick and easy I love this machine. I have used it for years. New model with padded sides make it great for handling. I have always loved the drum and attached lancet device. A true time saver. I would love if the lancet device could hold as many lancets as there are strips in drum. When you check 7 times a day every thing helps you fit it into your busy day. August 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy!!! Not a painful stick! I have been using the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus for about a year now. The ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus is so easy to use - you simply press a button, remove the old drum and drop in the new one. The machine does all the calibrating for you! Another benefit - adjustable needle settings and it's almost painless. August 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is pretty good. It is a great product regarding to not handling the strips so much. It would be nice to have more strips in a cartridge. August 14, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by All in One Simplicy I have been using the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus system for four of five years or more now. I immediately liked it compared to my old meter, and would have a hard time going back to a meter where you have to fish each individual test strip out of a tiny jar that my fingers can't fit into, and loan it. The Compact Plus is fast, simple, easy, and convenient. August 10, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by It's easy to use and has a lot of nice features. It's compact and all in one which is great. You don't have to put a strip in each time. It keeps track of all your blood sugars and then you can download it into your computer or have your doctor do it. August 8, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features The Compact Plus is easy to use. The best feature for me is the lighted display is easy to see in dim light settings and also the preloaded test strip drum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by No More Contamination After using several different testing systems I was very pleased after moving to Compact Plus. I have not had to retest due to a contaminated test strip. I travel regularly and the drum is very convenient. August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb accuracy In my experience no other testing system can compare to the accuracy of the Accu-Chek compact system. Then when you add in that the test stips are internal and the lancet is attached, it's hard to imagine why someone would chose another system.. August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features for me this solved all the issues I was having with previous meter from other approved device by my insurance. the lancing device is attached to the machine can use while attached or detached, open a canister with test strips open meter drop in drum done. no coding machine does everything for you. only improvement I would like is a light shining on test strip so that I can see the drop of blood on my finger without turning on overhead light August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like the size wish I could purchase a better quality case. The little black plastic is almost embarassing to pull out in public. August 6, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I first saw this when I was researching different meters as to the ease of use. I liked the idea of not having to fumble around with the test strips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ease of use I switched from using the vials of 50 test strips to the Accu-Check Compact Plus because of the ease of using the 17-strip preloaded drums... I had difficulties with my fingers trying to pull out one test strip at a time from a vial of 50 strips without all of the other strips falling out... the preloaded drum, I found, is a lot easier and much more convenient to use... July 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's very compact making easy to carry. Have used this model for several years and will continue because it's easy to use. I especially like that the lancing device can be used attached or unattached. It also needs a very small blood sample. July 18, 2013

Rated 3 out of 5 by Do not like the case. I liked the original Accu-check machine. This one is open, not covered and it's easy to crack the screen when it gets dropped. I prefer the covered machine that has a case to carry lancets and spare drum and my machine. Thanks July 16, 2013

July 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Glucose Tester EVER! Been a diabetic for over 40 years. This is by far the easiest, most convenient testing devise I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus Easy to use. Easy to take a sample and get a reading. Clear Easy To Read Large Numbers. This auto loads the strips as you need them. Saves a step in the process of checking glucose.Lancet device stays attached to machine if you want so you never need to go looking for it. The door can be hard to open when you need to change the strip container but once you get the hang of it its not a problem. July 12, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect so far perfect so far.....so much better than the one I had to send back.....back kept falling off ......so annoying July 10, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This is a great product! I cannot say enough about this meter. I have not seen any other product that compares to the ease of use. When I am out running errands or at a social function and I have to use public facilities I can handle this meter with one hand without trying to balance opening a small container, pulling the test strip out and then inserting a test strip in the meter. This meter contains the test strip drum which at a touch of a button releases the strip. It is easy and sanitary. Also, I have arthritis in my hands so I am very appreciative for making big issues non-existant. Thank you so much for your thoughtful design. Janet July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes testing easier! This meter is the best one I've ever had. I believe in its accuracy and it is certainly easy to use. The preloaded drums with the test strips are so convenient. I don't have to try and load individual test strips into the meter. The all in one Plus system is convenient and easy! July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by like it Works well for me wish it was a little smaller to fit in my purse July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Compact, convienient carrying case, easy to use and read, refill packs are large - less trips to drugstore. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Meter I have been using the Accu-Check Compact Plus for several months and it has been easy to use, the information on the screen is easy to read and the drum containing the test strips is easy to remove and reinstall. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Use So far no issues with this meter, I like it because the testing strips are in a drum in the system. July 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to use, no guess work. The only single problem is that the test strip drums say there is 17 strips in each and there is really only 16. I have gone through enough now that I could supply 4or 5 drums now with the ones that didn't come out of the original ones. Otherwise I love the product. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product I have used. Both for their educational DVD and the extremely easy to use test meter. I had stopped testing my glucose because my old test meter was difficult to use due to coding requirements... A recent trip to the hospital made me again focus on managing my glucose. I took the time to watch the informational DVD that came with my new ACCU-CHECk Compact Plus meter. Something finally clicked and now I understand why I must eat properly and exercise. Testing before each meal and 2 hours after the meal enabled me to see how certain foods increased or decreased my glucose. I finally "get it"!!! For the past 30 days I have worked to control my sugar! Now I am seeing great results: 80-120. I can't wait to see my Doctor again and discuss reducing my metformin doseage. Again, I believe it was understanding my diabeties through their educational material that is included with the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus test meter that may have saved my life. THANK YOU! Now - please see that others may know what I now know! July 10, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus The ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus is a very good glucose meter so far. I have not had it very long but excellent and accurate so far. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great feature very good product easy to set and read.i like it cause you do not how guess when you out of drum.kathy2 July 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost gave it a 5-star!!! I love the fact that the strips are preloaded. This is great! However, this meter takes a larger amount of blood than my former meter. This is why I could not give it a 5-star rating. I preferred my old meter in this regard. Also, I combined this meter with the FastClix for convenience and was surprised at the comfort of the "stick." All in all, I am pleased with my setup........ July 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like the fact that the needle and meter are together. I don't like change but my insurance made me. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked this unit. The unit is a little bigger but I like the strips coming out mechanically and having the lancing pen attached and if needed can be removed. I am overall happy and glad I switched. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Meter To Have! I've seen Clinics & Hospitals use "Accu-Chek" all the time, so I use it at Home, and it's truly a "great meter" to have!!! July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best I like the product very much. Lately I have no been abel to get it as the Medicare suppliers do not carry it any longer. Please advise where I can obtain the test drums. It is the best I have ever used and I refuse to use a substitue. ron d July 10, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by So Easy to use Just love to that I don't have to pull out strips to put into tester. Turn it on and the strip just pops out for testing. I have Dupuytren's Contracture in both my hands to I do not have much manual dexterity with my fingers. So have the drums with the strip in them is so much easier. Keep up on improving these items. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient, easy to use product This product is easy to use, easy to read, and very reliable. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Appreciate the accuracy of the unit This an excellent unit for testing and monitoring blood sugar levels. The adjustable depth of the lance to reduce pain and discomfort from sampling site is great. The memory storage is a nice feature when you forget to record the data directly. The on-line support services are wonderful to have in-place as a compliment. Very please to have this unit and support products. July 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to Use Only replace the strips after 17 test, just poke and test. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suggestion Why did you not mate this product with the multiclix pen? It is far superior to the pen that hooks on to this meyer . July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I prefer this product over all others I've tried. I like the ease of dropping the drum in the machine and I like the detachable lancing device. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Drum of test strips It is so easy to use. You slip a drum of test strips in the meter and you have 17 test before you need to change it. It is so easy to take the drum out and in. I love this meter. I won't use any other. June 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by User friendly As long as I was diagnosed with diabtes, I have always had the ACCU-CHECK system. It is easy to use, I leave together when it's used. I like that all I have to do (which could be an improvement), is load the "stabber", as I call them. June 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have neuropathy in my feet/hands. I saw an ad for this device and it has been a lifesaver for me. I can't pick small things with my fingers, but This meter has a drum that holds 17 test strips and comes completely loaded. I love it. I don't struggle trying to get a test strip It's a huge relief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenient, easy to use I am pleased with the product. All of the features described on the web site proved accurate. The video tutorials on the web site are better than could be expected. June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product is great. All in one feature. I love having it all in one place. It's easy to use once you get accustomed to it. Sometimes I have a hard time seeing if the strip is over the blood droplet. I could use a tiny light under the device by the strip...LOL June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is sooo!! easy to use I really do love this product,but am having trouble finding a mail order place.I can get it at the pharmacy,but that is expensive. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Medicare Plan B While it is covered under Medicare Plan B, now of the current limited suppliers carry strips for it. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This item is very portable. I was very much satisfied with it. Especially for overnight stays, being able to store enough uses made it highly convenient. I purchased the Accu-Chek Multi-Clik Lancing Device to make it possible to store six uses. I hated to have to change to another system (Freestyle) but my insurance U.S.Family Health Plan said it would drop my coverage if I did not switch to Freestyle. My insurance is a govt sponsored health plan and I use it in conjunction with Medicare. I am not allowed to use Medicare separately. I am sorry to have to switch but was forced to. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is easy to use Accu-chek Plus is easy to use,easy, to read. I like the way the detachable lancing is attached to the meter--I don't waste time looking for it. L. B. June 5, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by This meter is the easiest to use. Never have to touch a strip. Testing is very easy. The memory function on the meter is a terrific tool for keeping track of my blood sugars. I take it with me for my doctor's visits so he can track my sugars. The company is terrific to deal with. Answers all questions about meter and it's usage by just calling the toll free number on the meter. I highly recommend this meter. June 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have had this meter for a while, like all the features This meter very easy to use, with no coding and an easy-to-use display. Since obtaining this meter, I have had no problems with it and would highly recommend it for anyone's use. May 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It Is Compact And Easy To Use I love the Compact Plus. No dealing with strips since they are stored in a drum. Smaller size and bright display with sound reminders a great plus. Also easy to set up and maintain. A winner May 30, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product and excellant service I have had my accu-check for about 8 years and have found it easy to use.

A good product and super help with any problem! May 29, 2013
