Frequently Asked Questions

Meter care and batteries

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.

Cleaning is simply removing dirt from the meter, while disinfecting refers to removal of most but not all, disease-causing and other types of microorganisms.

1. Make sure the meter is turned o›.
2. Gently wipe the meter’s surface with a soft cloth slightly dampened (wring out any excess liquid) with
one of these cleaning solutions:

  • 70% isopropyl alcohol
  • Mild dishwashing liquid mixed with water
  • 10% household bleach solution (1¬part bleach plus 9¬parts water) made the same day

Be sure to clean the areas around slots and openings, while being careful not to get any moisture in them. You should also wipe down the entire meter surface, including the meter display.

Testing blood glucose

The Accu-Chek Aviva Nano blood glucose meter will test blood samples from 3 alternate sites (called Alternate Site Testing, AST): forearm, palm, and upper arm.

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.

An E4 displays on the meter, indicating not enough blood was drawn into the test strip for measurement or blood was applied after the test had started. You should discard the test strip and repeat the blood sugar test.

General questions

Because your monitor and lab tests don't measure the same thing, these numbers are likely to vary. Lab tests generally test plasma, but a meter uses whole blood. As a result, even if you take both tests at the exact same time, your meter is likely to show a lower number than the lab results. This is perfectly acceptable, and your healthcare professional will already be factoring this in.

Test strips, coding, and control tests

No. Although you can insert a code (activation) chip from another meter into the Accu-Chek Aviva Nano blood glucose meter, you will get an E-2 error message

No, check the use by date on the test strip container. Do not use test strips past the use by date.

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 sugar test, except you fill the window on the test strip with a drop of control solution instead of blood.
