Frequently Asked Questions

General questions

The validity of the test cassette depends on the use by period and the use by date.

  •  Use by period: A period of 90 days in which the test cassette must be used up after the foil cover of the plastic container was opened. The use by period in days is printed on the box and in the package insert of the test cassette.
  •  Use by date: Date up to which a test cassette stored in a closed plastic container is valid. The use by date is shown on the box of the test cassette/foil-sealed plastic container.

 

All reactive test areas are sensitive to humidity. The test cassette is delivered in a primary packaging that contains a desiccant which protects the reactive areas for 18 months (shelf life) from humidity, starting with the coding process at Roche Diabetes Care production. A desiccant is also integrated in the body of the cassette, providing a 90 days on-board stability. Once the primary packaging is opened, the stability is 90 days. When the cassette is inserted into the meter, the meter tracks the remaining onboard stability.

You can reinsert the cassette into the meter if the test cassette has unused tests and has not yet expired. The meter recognizes the cassette, the number of available tests and the validity.

The Accu-Chek Mobile meter and the Accu-Chek FastClix lancing device are intended for patient self-monitoring by one and the same person only. They must not be used to test blood glucose from more than one person as they do not incorporate any features to guard against cross infection. The meter and the lancing device are not to be shared between family members or used by healthcare professionals to obtain blood or test blood glucose from more than one person.

The Accu-Chek Mobile meter checks the validity of the test cassette. If either of the two dates – use by period or use by date – is exceeded, you will not be able to perform any more tests with this test cassette. If you start a test and the validity of the cassette is about to expire shortly or has already expired, the meter will inform you of this. The first notification appears 10 days before the validity of the cassette expires, the following appear 5, 2 and 1 day(s) before expiry. If the validity of the test cassette has expired, a message appears which informs about the expiry of the cassette and asks you to insert a new cassette.

The system cannot be used for neonates.

You can change the batteries while having a cassette inserted.

Prior to each test, the Accu-Chek Mobile system checks for damage to the test area (e.g. influence of humidity on the chemistry). To do so, the Accu-Chek Mobile system checks the quotient of the measurement values of the white area on the tape cassette and the test area. If the test area is not “fair” enough, a test is not possible with this test area and an error message is displayed.

Results and settings remain saved in the meter while batteries are changed or if the meter is stored without batteries.

Re-dosing is not possible with the Accu-Chek Mobile system. Under dosing (i.e. the application of too little blood or the unilateral application of blood to the test area) is detected by the system and an error message displayed.

The Accu-Chek Mobile meter is delivered with time and date factory set. Power supply is served by a 3rd coil cell battery that is incorporated. During storage a protection foil avoids that the 2 AAA batteries lose any power and the preset is running based on the power of the coin cell.
When using your meter for the very first time, you do not have to insert the AAA batteries, just pull out the protective battery foil and the AAA batteries take power supply over.
 

The test area works with blood or control solution quantities in a range from 0.3 μL to 5.0 μL. The special sink area deals specially with excessive sample dosing storing up to 5.0 μL.
