Accu-Chek Performa

Accu-Chek Performa

This stylish meter is easy to use, and offers helpful tools to help monitor diabetes. Leaving your patients free to plan their day for themselves, not for their diabetes.

Everyday easy, everyday accurate

Even on the go, your patients can set alerts that remind them to test at the right time - freeing their mind for more enjoyable things. Stay on top of blood glucose levels and be reminded of important testing times - like after a meal, or before sleep. Your patients can also share the information obtained using the markers with their healthcare team so that you can work together to support their diabetes management.

With its compact design and smart simplicity, the Accu-Chek Performa system offers everyday ease, with everyday accuracy.

  • Large LCD display with symbols for easy reading even in the dark.
  • No coding or set-up required. There is no initial set-up as the meter does not require coding, it is ready to use straight out of the box.
  • Bundled with the Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker for virtually pain free lancing.

  1. Use the Accu-Chek FastClix finger pricker to obtain a drop of blood. Please follow the chapter in the reference manual on using the finger pricker.
  2. Insert a test strip into the meter. Symbols of a test strip and a flashing blood drop will appear on the display.
  3. Touch the drop of blood to the tip of the yellow end of the test strip.
  4. A flashing hourglass symbol and a beep will indicate that enough blood has been applied, and the result will appear on the display.
