The meter is compatible with all Accu-Chek data management tools, including the Accu-Chek 360o diabetes management system.

Test Strips and control tests

A control test using your meter’s specific control solution ensures that the meter and test strips are working properly. Testing with control solution is just like a blood glucose test, except you fill the window on the test strip with a drop of control solution instead of blood.

Performing a control test lets the user know the meter and test strips are working properly. Perform a control test when:

  • You open a new test strip box
  • You left the test strip container open
  • You think the test strips are damaged
  • You want to check the meter and test strips
  • The test strips were stored in extreme temperatures, humidity, or both
  • You dropped the meter
  • Your test result does not match how you feel
  • You want to check if you are performing the test correctly

The Accu-Chek Performa Nano blood glucose meter automatically recognises Accu-Chek Performa Control Solutions, so running a control test is easier than ever. First, wipe the tip of the control bottle. Then put the meter on a flat surface, insert the strip, and squeeze a drop of the control solution onto the front edge of the test strip. A result appears with a flashing “L”. Press one of the arrow keys once to indicate a Level 1 control test or twice to indicate Level 2. Press the ON/OFF button to set the level in the meter. The control result and “OK” alternate in the display if the result is in range.

In the same way that fresh blood should always be used for monitoring, fresh control solution should be used to prevent a contaminated control drop. Control solution should always be wiped from the tip of the bottle so that only what is in the bottle itself is used for the test.

Control test values will not be in the user-accessible memory. However, they will be stored in the downloadable memory.

Meter care and batteries

Watch this short video to see how easy it is to set the date and time.

Your battery should last for approximately 2,000 tests.

The meter uses 1 3-volt lithium coin cell battery (type CR 2032) found in many stores.

Clean and disinfect your meter once a week, or any time blood gets on the meter. You should also clean the meter before allowing anyone else to handle it.

Testing blood sugar (Glucose)

There are a few ways you can improve blood flow and make blood glucose testing easier: Warm your fingers by washing with warm, soapy water, then rinse and dry completely. Let your arm hang down at your side to increase blood flow to the fingertips. Grasp finger just below the joint closest to the fingertip and massage gently toward tip of finger, then squeeze for 3 seconds. Use an Accu-Chek lancing device set to the right penetration depth for your skin type. Refer to your User's Guide for additional information.
