Part of the system that carries out intelligent safety checks.
6 gold electrodes.
The test strip electrodes work with the system technology and code key to perform extensive quality checks such as strip integrity checks prior to each test – so fast you do not even realise it.
The test strip expiry warning offers additional convenience and safety.
Temperature and humidity compensation.
The Accu-Chek Performa test strip adjusts to heat, cold and humidity to ensure accurate measuring.
Tiny blood sample.
Accu-Chek Performa test strips only require a tiny 0.6 micro litre sample for a blood glucose measurement. This makes lancing less painful as you can use a lower penetration depth. Furthermore, a smaller blood sample reduces the likelihood of under-dosing.
The system indicates if more blood is needed and permits re-dosing within 5 seconds.
Fast capillary fill.
The strip uses a super-fast-fill capillary window which acts like a funnel to help draw blood into the strip quickly, making dosing more convenient for the user.
The strips wide Y-capillary allows easier targeting of the sample, which is particularly important for patients with dexterity problems.
Advice: When you take a test strip from the vial make sure you close it immediately afterwards to preserve strip quality.
