Frequently Asked Questions

General questions

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

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

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.

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 minimized 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 minimize 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. 

No. It is not designed for use on pets.

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

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

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

To obtain a blood sample, the AST cap is pressed against the skin on the punctured site. The bottom of the cap is transparent to enable visibility of puncture site when pressing. 

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.

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 hot car or in the refrigerator.

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.

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
  •  Intuitive lancet change by sliding the lever back and forth
  •  Easy penetration depth setting by rotating the cap located at the end of the lancing device
  •  Smaller in size than the Accu-Chek Multiclix lancing device for more convenience 

No, this is not possible because of safety and hygienic reasons. A used drum is easy recognized by the red stripe.
