Frequently Asked Questions

General questions

Due to its unique drum mechanism, only the Accu-Chek FastClix lancet drum can be used in the Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device.

The drum can simply be disposed of in the household waste. Remember to check your local regulations as these may vary from country to country.

Keep your drums clean and protect them from extreme temperatures. Do not store them in a refrigerator or hot car.

The use of an expired lancet (drum) may cause an infection at the puncture site as the lancet may have lost its sterility. We guarantee 4 years of sterility, so you have plenty of time to use your lancets.

No, this is not possible, for safety and hygienic reasons. A used drum is easy to recognise by the red stripe.

No, for safety and hygienic reasons it is not possible to rotate the lancet drum backwards to a lancet that has been previously used.

Lancets are for single use only due to hygienic reasons and because the needle will become dull with repeated use. A new, sterile lancet should be used each time you perform a test.

No. It is not designed for use on pets.

The lancing device and lancet drums are available at many retail and online pharmacies. Please view the list of retailers in your country for more details.

No, the Accu-Chek FastClix lancets do not contain latex.

No. It is intended to be used by one person only and should not be used on multiple users. If someone else uses your lancing device there is an increased risk of cross-infections.

The Clixmotion technology is the principle of guided lancet motion, meaning that both the forward and return motion of the lancet is precisely controlled, with minimised vibrations and oscillations. This special guided motion is the key to gentle blood sampling. The lancet needs just a few milliseconds to penetrate the skin with a motion designed to minimise lateral movement and reduce the sensation of pain as fewer nerve endings are disturbed. In the skin, the lancet is brought to a precise stop and then actively retracted immediately. This fast, controlled lancet motion helps to reduce the risk of skin and nerve-end damage.
