The Accu-Chek Compact Plus is a blood glucose meter that offers greater ease of testing for people who need to perform blood glucose tests when out and about.

The meter requires a relatively large drop of blood by modern standards. For a meter that requires a smaller quantity of blood consider the Accu-Chek Mobile.


The key features of the Accu-Chek Compact Plus are those that allow the meter to be used more easily when out and about.

Whilst many meters are difficult to use without having a free flat surface, the features of the Compact Plus mean that you can perform a test even when a flat surface is not available.

17 strips per drum

The meter contains a drum of 17 test strips which means that a test strip appears at the press of a button. This eliminates the need for removing test strips from a vial, which can be awkward in situations such as when out shopping or otherwise needing to stand to do a test.

Additionally, the Compact Plus has a lancing device, the Accu-Chek Softclix, attached to the side of the meter that can therefore be used without needing to put the meter down to prick your finger.

The Accu-Chek Softclix has 11 depth settings and can also be detached from the meter when preferred.
