Mobile

The Accu-Chek Mobile was first introduced in 2010 and provided users with the chance to take a blood test without needing to hold a set of additional loose supplies.

In 2012, the Accu-Chek Mobile was updated to be slimmer and even easier to use – and has several awards to its name to boot.

The meter also meets the 2013 ISO standards for blood glucose meter accuracy.

Anyone who blood tests is familiar with having to carry not only the meter itself, but a lancing device, lancets and a pot of sensors but with this machine Accu-chek makes testing a much more “mobile” experience (hence the name).

This enables you to leave the house with just your Accu-Chek Mobile in your jacket pocket or bag and have everything you need to monitor your blood glucose levels.

Additional features include:

  • 7, 14, 30 and 90 day averages
  • Meal tags for marking ‘before meal’, ‘after meal’ or ‘other’ tests
  • Up to 7 standard reminder alarms can be set up to regularly remind you to test
  • Up to 3 ‘once only’ reminders can also be set up

Accu-Chek FastClix

Incorporating a detachable FastClix lancing device (which operates using a drum of six lancets, each of which retracts back into the mechanism, therefore making accidental finger pricks impossible).

As well as being safer, it is quicker too, as the lancet drum is replaced after 6 tests rather than after every test.

Using unique technology, the blood glucose testing is done on a strip of reactive tape on a cassette.

Blood glucose tests can be performed in just 4 simple tests:

  • Open the cover
  • Take a blood sample
  • Apply blood to the test sensor
  • Read the result and close the cover

Removable cassettes

Each removable cassette can handle 50 tests and tells you how many tests are left after each time you turn on and turn off the meter.

You can leave the house just carrying the machine and nothing else.

Cassettes and Fastclix lancet drums are available on prescription.

Transcript

Right, this black beauty is the Accu-Chek Mobile. Again, this is quite an innovation in the world of blood testing. Many machines claim to be the all-in-one solution because when people talk about blood testing, people think about the meter.

Whereas, you nearly always have a pot of little strips, as well as a lancing device and in the lancing device you probably need a lancet as well. So, altogether there is quite a bit of clobber.

Now, this machine does have in it everything you could possibly need.

There’s a few innovations with this machine. But, the main one, I would suggest is that there are no more pots of sensors – there is just a cassette. On the cassette, that has 50 tests on it (the capability of 50 tests). There is a tape. This goes in the back of the machine – I’ll show you how it rolls around in a minute.

You only have to change the cassette every 50 tests – which is really handy. There’s no pots, no strips to chuck away or insert. The finger pricker on the side is called the Fastclix. You’ve already got a drum on lancets in there.

You choose your delivery depth by twiddling that round and if you want to change the lancet you twist this around. But at the moment, it’s actually primed. You might want to open the bottom – open the hatch as it were. You can hear and you can see the cassette spinning around. You can test any which way you want.

Pop the blood on the bottom and watch it as it does its bit. There’s simply nothing else there – it’s really great. 10.3mmol/L – not bad.

Inside it, there’s other bits and bobs you can do – you can set flags and do things like that, but for the purpose of this demo I’ll just show you how that works. You close it back off again and it shuts itself down. Bob’s your uncle, that’s that, done.
