Checking blood sugar

What makes the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device "least painful and overall easiest to use?"1

The ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device’s 1-click action makes lancing quick and easy. Two handling steps, priming and releasing, are combined into a simple 1-click action, enabling you to lance quickly.

Also, the device’s lancet lever makes it easy to advance to a fresh lancet.

The device offers 11 customizable depth settings for different skin types. Its unique technology minimizes painful side-to-side motion as the lancet enters your skin. Finally, the way our beveled lancets are precisely designed and manufactured allows for smoother entry.

How do I use the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device?

See how to set up, load and use the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device.

Insert an ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancet drum into the device. Use the Comfort Dial to adjust penetration depth. Place the device firmly against the skin.

To prime and release the lancet, simply press down the plunger like a pen.

What lancet drum does the lancing device use?

Your ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device uses the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancet drum. It contains 6 preloaded lancets, so there are no individual lancets to see or handle.

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

Your ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device uses a special gray alternate site testing (AST) cap designed for testing on other areas of the body instead of the fingertip.1 To obtain an AST cap, please call ACCU-CHEK Customer Care Service Center at 1-800-858-8072. Note: Do not use the gray AST cap when testing at the fingertip.

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

  • Use the gray cap instead of the black plastic cap.
  • You may need a deeper setting. Try 3 for palm testing or 5-1/2 for forearm or upper arm testing. (These are suggested settings, yours may differ.)
  • Press the opening of the gray cap firmly against a fleshy area of the non-fingertip site.
  • After pressing down the plunger like a pen, remove the lancing device from the site.
  • Remove the AST cap from the lancing device and, with the lancet hole over the site, press the AST cap against the site until you have a sufficiently-sized drop of blood.

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

Which Comfort Dial setting should I use?

Your most comfortable setting will depend on a few things:

  • Whether you're using a fingertip or alternate site.1
  • Your skin type. Softer, thinner skin requires a shallower setting than thicker skin.
  • The required blood sample. The more blood you require, the higher the setting you'll need.

Start with a low setting when using the device for the first time. Dial to a higher setting until blood volume is right. For alternate sites, try 3 for palm testing or 5-1/2 for forearm or upper arm testing. (These are suggested settings, yours may differ.)

Lancet drum

How do I change the lancet drum?

See how to set up, load and use the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device.

To change the drum, remove the black cap from the device by pulling it straight off. Insert a new drum—white end first—until it clicks into place. Replace the cap on the lancing device. The first lancet is ready to use.

How do I advance to a new lancet?

See how to set up, load and use the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device.

When you insert a new drum, a “6” appears in the white lancet counter, indicating that there are 6 lancets remaining. A new lancet can be chosen by pushing the lancet lever back and forth.

Can I use a lancet more than once?

We strongly recommend the use of a new, sterile lancet every time you test. The tip of a new needle is sharp and precisely formed to ensure gentle lancing, but the tip can become dull or bent if used more than once. What's more, a new lancet is sterile and hygienic.

How do I safely dispose of a used lancet drum?

The lancet drum may be disposed of in a sharps container.

If the ACCU-CHEK FastClix lancing device or drum is dropped on a hard surface, the lancets may stick out slightly from the drum and could cause injury. If you drop a drum, always pick it up at the red-striped end and dispose in a sharps container.
