At Roche Diabetes Care we hold our products to the highest standards of quality and are committed to communicating any issues impacting the operation of our products. As part of our ongoing quality monitoring and market surveillance processes, we have identified certain test strip lots of the Accu-Chek Performa test strips that potentially show an increase in strip errors prior to dosing.
Due to the designed fail-safe in the blood glucose meter, the issue can be identified by the error message displayed on the meter upon strip insertion or through the device not recognizing the test strip, respectively. However, in a very limited number of cases the test strip can produce a biased result i.e. a falsely too high or too low value, which you might not be able to detect easily and which could lead to erroneous therapy adaptations.
