Checking blood sugar

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.

How do I run a blood sugar check on an alternate 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 or upper arm 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.

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

Use the Comfort Dial to adjust penetration depth. To prime the device press the priming plunger down like a pen, as far as it will go. The release button turns yellow when the lancing device is ready. Place the device firmly against the skin and click the yellow release button to lance.

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.)

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

How do I use the clear alternate site testing cap?

Remove the black or blue cap from the lancing device. Attach the clear plastic cap, and twist the comfort dial until you reach your chosen setting. Prime the lancing device, and place the clear cap firmly against the selected site.1 Press the release button to lance.

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

Lancet drum

How do I change the lancet drum?

To change the drum, grasp the cap by the notch and remove it from the device. Insert a new drum—blue ring first—until it snaps into place. Replace the cap on the lancing device. The first lancet is ready to use.

How do I advance to a new lancet?

When you insert a new drum, a “6” appears in the oval lancet counter window indicating that there are 6 lancets remaining. A new lancet can be chosen by twisting the priming plunger.

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. For these reasons, the ACCU-CHEK Multiclix lancing device will not allow you to re-select a used lancet.

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 Multiclix 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! It is so easy to use this lancet. Just load and done. And it is easy to dispose of too. No sharps to worry about. March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best lancet device there is I got this lancet as soon as it came out So I have been using it for a long time. i travel a great deal so I have several just in case I miss place one. I would never want to go back to the old ways. Again I can't say how easy this lancet is to use, and how much time you save by not having to change the lancet every time you test. February 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, Easy to use, very fine needles, easy disposal Drum About three years ago I switched from the single lancets to the Multiclix that have fine needles in a drum of 6 that is easy to dispose of. I have not looked back once. The finer needles do not hurt, the depth setting is easy to adjust between using each needle. Different fingers on each hand have different depth setting. Knowing these settings you will only have to click the needle once. However if you don't succeed the first time you can re-cock the lancet and try again. Each time you use a needle it becomes a little duller so I only use a needle once if successfully or twice if I can not get enough blood for a sample on the first try. I do not push the test strip into the meter until I have enough (what I think is enough) blood for the test strip to read. With time and practice you will fine the depth setting that works best for you. As time goes by your skin will get tougher and you will have to turn the depth setting up a number. I am presently at number 4. The very fine needles are virtually painless making it easier to test your blood glucose reading without winching or hesitation. January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this product Don't have to carry around 6 individual lancets, saves so much room when traveling. December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy To all those saying you wish you could reuse a lancet, you do realize that if you press the trigger button and don't get a good pr1ck (intentionally misspelled since you can't use that term apparently), you CAN press the plunger down again and re-fire the same lancet don't you? Easy to use, no sharps to worry about disposing. I have several of these and love them! December 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best lancet device I've ever used! I have been diabetic for >10 years and have used several 'devices.' This is the BEST! Ease of use, painless (if you use it correctly), overall a number ONE system. I have recommended it to everyone I know that is diabetic and no one has ever said I was wrong, they have all loved it. Keep up the good work, but then how can you improve perfection? October 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by is the easiest device to use I have found to date have been using this device for about 6 months and love it. I check my blood sugar three times a day and have limited use of my hands so this device makes it so so easy to load and use. October 10, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wastes a lot of lancets I have wasted so many of these lancets cartriges trying to load it properly or just by accidently pushing the button before I mean to. I would also prefer to reuse a lancet. At this point, I plan to use up the supplies I have and try a different lancet. October 9, 2013

Rated 1 out of 5 by Good Theory; Bad Idea The lancet device overall seems perfectly fine. My only issue is with the lancet drum. The inability to reuse lancets is a huge issue. I have been a type 1 diabetic for 26 years. That many years of pricking my fingers to test has left them quite callused, which means it often times requires multiple pricks on the same finger or among different fingers to achieve a sample. Ergo I will burn through a small box of lancet drums each day. ...horrible, or no, forethought September 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it!! If you have used the old single use lancets, you don't know what your missing, or not feeling as it is. The depth setting is awesome, once you get it set to where it is piercing the skin and you barely feel it if at all. I love this. The lancet barrel is nice, no need for sharps containers, If you are considering trying the multiclix lancet pen you will be extremely pleased. September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life less complicated. I use the MultiClix because of it being easy to use. I do not have to keep up with those tiny lancets that I have a tendency to accidently stick myself again in trying to dispose of them. July 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A timesaving and convenient device The MultiClix lancet ia convenient to use and reduces the hassles of dealing with individual lancets. It is particularly easy to use when traveling. Disposal is clean and sanitary-no sharp tips. July 4, 2013
