Frequently Asked Questions

General questions

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

The major improvements of the Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device when compared to the Accu-Chek Multiclix lancing device are:

  • 1-Click action: Prime and release in one step by pressing the release button only once
  • Smaller in size than the Accu-Chek Multiclix lancing device for more convenience

Yes, like all Accu-Chek consumer lancing devices the Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device is driven by the Clixmotion technology for virtually pain free1 testing.

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.

Before you decide to use blood from alternative sites, consult your healthcare professional.

Yes, it can be used for alternative site testing (AST) by using the specially designed AST cap.

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

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

The lancing device and lancet drums are available at many retail and online pharmacies.

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

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

No. A used drum is easy recognised by the red stripe.

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 up your lancets.

Accu-Chek Fastclix

Item Description

1-Click is all it takes. Priming and releasing are now combined into a simple 1-Click action. As with our previous lancing devices Clixmotion technology has also been integrated into the Accu-Chek FastClix device making lancing quick, easy and virtually pain-free1. The rotatable cap offers 11 depth settings that let you customise the device to your skin type. The lancing device uses a drum of 6 preloaded lancets, so you don’t handle individual lancets.
