What is the Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker?

The Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker is a lancing device which helps you to draw the blood samples needed to test your blood sugar. Perfect for those who are diabetic and need to self-monitor their blood sugar levels, this finger pricker is gentle on your skin, leaving you in almost no pain at all.

 

How will this product help me to manage my diabetes?

The Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker can help you to manage your diabetes by providing a convenient way to draw blood samples needed for blood sugar testing. It takes just one click to prime and use this device, making it quick and easy to use whenever you need to self-test.

 

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition where your blood sugar levels become too high, as your body cannot create or sustain insulin. Diabetes is a lifelong condition, and if you have diabetes, you’ll need to speak to your doctor about formulating a plan to manage diabetes effectively. This plan can include dietary changes, exercise, and monitoring your blood sugar levels.

 

Why is this finger pricker right for me?

This lancing device is perfect for those who want their blood sugar testing to be quick, easy, and almost painless. It has a changeable depth setting, so you can choose which is perfect for you, making this pricker less likely to damage your skin and nerve endings, easing pain. The simple, one-click lancing system makes this pricker easy to use no matter where you are, so you can do your test and get on with your day.

 

How to use the Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker

To use your Accu-Chek FastClix, first ensure that a lancet drum is in place, and insert a new one if necessary. Select the penetration depth by turning the end of the device, to choose a setting from 1 – 11. Change to a new lancet by sliding the lever on the body of the device back and forth, if necessary. Before testing, wash and dry your hands thoroughly, then hold the finger pricker in place on your fingertip and click once to obtain a blood sample. Read manufacturer’s instructions thoroughly before use.

 

Can I use this lancing device on other areas of the body?

Accu-Chek FastClix can be used for Alternate Site Testing (AST), which is when you take blood samples from other areas of the body for blood sugar testing. However, you will need to use a specially designed AST cap to do this, which is available from Accu-Chek upon request.

 

How many times can I use this product?

The Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker will last for around 5,000 finger pricks before needing to be replaced. Each lancet drum contains 6 lancets, which are loaded into the pricker so you don’t have to handle individual lancets.

 

When should this product not be used?

The Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker should not be used for more than one person, as there is a risk of cross-infection. Do not attempt to re-select a used lancet or use a lancet that has been used by another person. Do not use expired lancets, as they may no longer be sterile and could cause infection.

 

Could this product cause an allergic reaction?

Although allergic reactions to the lancets included with this product are possible, they are extremely rare. These lancets are mane from stainless steel 1.4301, which is approved for medical purposes and contains 18% chromium and 9% nickel.

 

How to store this product

Store in a cool, dry place. Store in the original packaging, do not use lancets if the expiry date printed on the packaging has passed. Keep out of sight and reach of children. Lancet drums can be disposed of in the regular household waste. Dispose of used lancets so that they cannot cause injury, e.g. with your local sharps disposal service.
