Accu-Chek Active provides effective blood glucose measurement and monitoring. The meter requires not more than 5 seconds to measure and deliver results that correlate with a lab test in an excellent way. Only 1-2 micro-litre (very small drop) of blood is required to run a blood glucose test. Measurement is in mg/dl. To get the reading in mmol/L = Divide mg/dL value by 16.
Strip expiry warning: Accu-Chek Active meter alerts you and marks the value accordingly if you try to measure your blood glucose with an expired strip.
Out-of-meter dosing: Applying blood onto a test strip outside the meter helps to minimize the risk of contamination (as in hospital settings).
Under-dosing detection: The meter signals the application of too little blood to the test strip and enables re-dosing in the meter within 5 seconds.
Visual double check: The visual double-check option gives you a back-up on your blood glucose values. Just compare the colour in the test strip control window with the colours on the vial.
Data transfer: The meter has an infrared port enabling you to download stored test results to a computer with Accu-Chek Smart Pix device.
Automatic coding: The code chip allows for expired test strip alerts.
