Frequently Asked Questions

Meter care and batteries

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.

An additional internal battery supports the clock when the main battery is removed. You can leave the battery out of the meter for up to 72 hours and still retain the time and date. If you replace the battery within that time, the meter will ask you to verify the time and date the next time you turn it on.
When you replace the main battery, the internal battery will automatically recharge. If you do not replace the battery within 72 hours, the meter will retain the time and date that was stored immediately before the internal battery was depleted.

Some countries share meter configurations with other countries, have multiple time zones within their country, and/or change their time semi-annually. Therefore, manufacturing is unable to set the correct time for every country.
The system directs you to confirm the time and date the first time you turn it on, and the default time should be within 1–2 hours of your correct time.

Clean the meter to remove visible dirt or other material prior to disinfecting.

• Clean and disinfect the meter at least once per week and when blood is present on the surface of the meter.

• Clean and disinfect the meter before allowing anyone else to handle the meter. Do not allow anyone else to use the meter on themselves for testing purposes.

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.

Only 3 other substances in the bloodstream (galactose, Lipaemic samples (triglycerides) and ascorbic acid) can interfere with the Accu-Chek Aviva test strip.

Yes. The Accu-Chek Aviva Nano with the Accu-Chek Aviva test strips provide a complete test system that is meant for in vitro diagnostic use by healthcare professionals in clinical settings and by people with diabetes at home. The system is not for use in diagnosis or screening of diabetes mellitus.

Testing blood glucose

There are a few ways you can improve blood flow and make blood sugar 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.

It's a small sample—just 0.6 microliter.

The system automatically detects when enough blood has been applied to the test strip and begins the test, even if some yellow is still visible. The only time you need to apply more blood is when the blood drop symbol continues to flash in the display.
