Detailed Features:
  • Detailed data to keep diabetes management on track – The Accu-Chek Active system now offers functions to mark and evaluate the pre- and post-meal blood glucose values; the latter have moved into the focus of attention as a major independent cardiovascular risk factor over the past years. The new Accu-Chek Active system provides the option to flag these values of particular importance and thus supports a precise evaluation of the metabolic situation. Furthermore, the averages of pre- and post-meal values for the last 7, 14 or 30 days can be retrieved from the meter’s memory and displayed directly on its screen.
  • Easy-to-use data analysis function: Accu-Chek Active has a 350-value memory for saving results together with date and times as well as an infrared interface for communicating with a PC running a suitable analysis program.
  • Testing in record time: With a testing time of about 5 seconds, your Accu-Chek Active is one of the fastest blood glucose monitors available.
  • Elegant design: Your new Accu-Chek Active is designed for ergonomic functionality with good looks.
  • Tiny blood sample: Your Accu-Chek Active requires only a tiny drop of blood, 1 to 2 µL (1 micro litre = 1 thousandth of a milli litre) if you apply the blood drop to the middle of the test pad. If at any time the drop you apply is too small, the monitor will detect this and issue a warning.
  • Easy to operate: No need to press buttons when you carry out the test.
  • Integrated data evaluation: From the results stored in memory your monitor can calculate the average of your blood glucose results over the last 7 , 14 or 30 days.
  • Out-of-meter dosing: After activating the test cycle you may remove the test strip to apply blood e.g. from an earlobe, and then insert it again in the monitor.
  • Accurate results: Application of blood to the test strip start with a colour reaction. The final colour is accurately read (measured photo metrically) by the meter’s optical system and the result is converted to a blood glucose value.
  • Dependable Auto CodingTM : Each pack of test strips contains a coding chip that holds all of the important information that is needed to evaluate the strips from that particular pack. Whenever you open a new pack of strips, simply insert the new coding chip in the coding chip slot.
  • Easy-to-read display: Numbers and messages are clearly presented on a spacious display screen. Easily understood symbols give you additional information and instructions.
  • Longest Strip Expiry: Accu-Chek Active strips have 18 months of strip expiration from the date of manufacture which is the longest expiry period compared to other strips.*
  • Virtually Pain-free Testing in 5 Seconds: Things to do. Places to go. Whatever pace you live your life at, new Accu-Chek Active is with you all the way. In just 5 seconds, Accu-Chek Active delivers highly accurate results, whenever you need them. It’s the quickest, best-looking system ever. If you don’t want diabetes to slow you down, it’s definitely the way to go.
