Monitoring Blood Glucose
Wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and dry them well.
Insert the black activation chip into the meter. After inserting, discard any future code chips you receive.
Insert a test strip into the meter. Both a test strip and blood drop symbol will appear on the display.
Touch the drop of blood to the front edge of the yellow window on the test strip—do not apply to top of the strip or window. A flashing hour-glass symbol indicates enough blood has been applied. If necessary, more blood can be applied within 5 seconds. The result appears in the display.
Every Accu-Chek Performa meter kit comes with a Quick Start Guide to help you set up and operate the meter.
For more detailed information on how to use your meter, please see your Accu-Chek Performa Owner’s Booklet.
