The Accu-Chek Guide system uses Accu-Chek Guide test strips, which offer a wider dosing area and accurate results with just a small drop of blood. In addition, they come in a spill-resistant SmartPack™ vial that makes it easy to remove just one strip at a time. The Accu-Chek Guide meter is not compatible with other Accu-Chek test strips.
