ACCU-CHEK® Softclix Lancing Device

 

Least-painful lancing technology

The ACCU-CHEK Softclix lancing device is the same one used for blood glucose self-testing by diabetes patients. It uses the same technology as the ACCU-CHEK FastClix device, which has been proven least painful.1

This device has been specifically developed for self-monitoring by the patient. It is not suitable for use in hospitals or for testing more than one person, as there is a risk of cross-contamination.

The ACCU-CHEK Softclix lancing device offers:

  • Personalized comfort — 11 customizable depth settings allow patients to select the right depth for their skin type
  • Precise lancet movement — Unique technology minimizes painful side-to-side motion
  • Precisely manufactured lancets — 28-gauge lancets ensure smoother entry

 

Frequently asked questions

Can the ACCU-CHEK Softclix lancing device be used for point-of-care monitoring?
This ACCU-CHEK Softclix lancing device has been specifically developed for self-testing by a patient. It is not suitable for use in hospitals or for testing more than one person, as there is a risk of cross-contamination.

 

What depth setting should be used?
The patient should use the lowest depth setting that will allow them to obtain an adequate drop of blood for the test. Softer, thinner skin requires a shallower setting than thicker skin. The certified trainer will work with the patient to determine the appropriate setting.

 

Can a lancet be used more than once?
We strongly recommend the use of a new, sterile lancet for every test. The tip of a new lancet is sharp and precisely formed to ensure gentle lancing, but the tip can become dull or bent if used more than once. What\’s more, a new lancet is more hygienic. Patients should be advised never to use a lancet that has been used by someone else.

 

How should patients dispose of sharps?
Sharps disposal guidelines vary by state, and many areas have collection programs for these items.
