Frequently Asked Questions

Test strips, coding, and control tests

If the control solution evaporates or concentrates on the tip of the bottle, it could cause the meter to display an incorrect control reading.

Control test values do not stay in the memory that you can access on the meter. Instead, the meter stores them in the downloadable memory, so you can view them with supported software.

Control solutions are good until the expiry date, unless they are opened. Once they have been opened for use, the control solutions are good for 3 months.

Special features

You can set up to 4 test reminders per day, in 15-minute increments. At the set reminder time(s), a series of beeps will sound every 2 minutes, up to 3 times per reminder. The reminder beep will not occur if the meter is on at the set time, or if you run a test within 15 minutes of the set reminder time. If you turn on the meter while the reminder is sounding, the series of beeps for that reminder will stop.

Once set, test reminders will beep every 2 minutes up to 3 times. It will turn off when you insert a test strip or press any button. To turn the beeper off all the way, refer to the set-up instructions in your User Manual .

You can transfer stored results to a computer simply by pointing the infrared (IR) window on top of the meter toward the IR window of the Accu-Chek download cable. The 2 windows should be 3 to 10 cm (1 to 4 inches) apart. To enter download mode:

  1.  Turn off the meter.
  2.  Press and hold the left and right arrows until 2 arrows in the display flash alternately. Initiate the data download by following the instructions provided with the supported software.

The meter is compatible with all Accu-Chek data management tools, including the Accu-Chek 360° diabetes management system and the Accu-Chek Connect Online portal.

Meter care and batteries

Your meter comes with the batteries already installed and a preset time and date. You may need to change the time to match your time zone or, if you live in a province that observes daylight saving time, to reflect the time change.

  • Press and release the On/Off button to turn the meter on. The flashing test strip symbol appears.
  • Press and hold the On/Off button again until "set-up" appears in the display.
  • Press and release the arrows to decrease or increase the hour.
  • Press and release the On/Off button to set the hour. The minutes flash.
  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 to set the minutes, AM/PM, month, day and year. The flashing field is the one you are changing.

Once you set the correct time and date, press and hold the On/Off button until the flashing test strip symbol appears

Make sure you have two new 3-volt, lithium batteries, number CR2032, to insert. Open the battery door on the back of the meter, remove the old batteries for at least 20 seconds, and press any button on the meter. Insert the new batteries with the “+” sign facing out. Snap the battery door back into place. Press the on/off button, and the meter will beep. Setup and hour are flashing on the display. If the date and time are correct, press and hold the on/off button for about 4 seconds. Release the button, and you’re done.

The meter uses 2 3-volt lithium coin cell batteries (type CR 2032) found in many stores.

The meter includes an additional internal battery that retains the time and date while you change batteries. However, you'll still want to confirm that the time and date are correct.

General questions

Roche goes above and beyond to deliver safe, accurate and dependable products.

For every lot of Accu-Chek test strips, containing millions of strips, one out of every 100 vials is tested for consistency of performance. Vials representative of the entire lot are tested a second time, some in a lab setting and others with blood from actual people with diabetes to reflect a real-world environment. As a result of our quality assurance process, we won’t release affected test strips when any of the samples show a reading outside our accepted limits.

Also, the Accu-Chek Aviva Nano fulfills ISO 15197 : 2013 accuracy standard.
