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, upper arm, thigh or calf 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 blue cap from the lancing device. Attach the clear plastic cap, and twist the Comfort Dial until you reach your chosen depth setting. Prime the lancing device, and place the clear cap firmly against the selected site.1 Press the release button to lance.

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 more hygienic. Even if you decide to reuse lancets, never use a lancet that has been used by someone else.

Can I continue to use my ACCU-CHEK lancing device if it's been dropped?

Dropping the lancing device with a lancet inserted may loosen the lancet in its holder. If that happens, the lancet will no longer be properly lodged and cannot be used to obtain blood. In rare cases, the lancet may protrude from the cap. Take great care not to touch the front of the cap.

How should I safely dispose of used lancets?

Lancets should be placed and disposed in an approved sharps container, and in accordance with local regulations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by The Softclix needles are larger that the multiclix. I use the softclix for several years until I found the Multiclix. The multiclix lancets are 6 to a drum with very thin needles. I immediately switched to the multiclix and have not look back since. January 11, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACCU-CHEK Softclix I really like the accu-chek softclix. It allows to adjust the depth to the point you can hardly feel it. It doesn't leave your fingers sore. AWESOME January 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is easy to use This product is good for individual lancets, however, the caps are a little difficult to keep on if you have to keep them in your case until you get home to put in your sharps container. It's easy to use and generally doesn't hurt. January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accu-check soffclix This device is better than the softclix plus because you can operate it securely with one hand as opposed to the softclix plus that requires to move your fingers at the end of the device. I used the softclix for years and it is durable and reliable device. August 21, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor quality The old soft click pen was larger and easier to use. It also auto ejected the used needle with a push of the end of the pen. This newer version does not. Also the inject button is smaller and harder to use than the prior model and you have to be careful not to push the new pin too far into unit or it doesn't work. NOT a good tool for people who have vision problems or dexterity issues. Bring back the older pen. It was a much better tool for a large percent of the users. July 10, 2013
