Accu-Chek Go test strips for people who want more.
Easy blood application.
Accu-Chek Go test strips quickly attract and absorb a small blood drop with the help of the capillary fill function.
The system indicates if more blood is needed.
With the Accu-Chek Active test strip in-meter re-dosing is possible within 5 seconds.
Advice: When you take a test strip from the vial make sure you close it immediately afterwards to preserve strip quality.

Testing Blood Glucose.
Insert a test strip into the meter to turn the meter on.
Verify the code number which is displayed. A test strip with a flashing blood drop appears indicating the meter is ready to perform a blood glucose test.
Hold the meter so that the test strip is pointing downwards. As soon as you touch the end of the test strip with your blood drop it will be absorbed. The hour glass symbol is displayed and the meter beeps. After approximately 5 seconds, the result is displayed. The meter automatically saves up to 300 results in memory together with the date, time and averages.
Flagging special results.
You can flag special results as long as they are being displayed, e.g., results obtained from alternative site testing or after exercise, with an asterisk. Press the or the button repeatedly until the asterisk is displayed.
Ejecting the test strip.
To eject the test strip hold the meter above a waste bin and push the test strip ejector forward as far as it will go towards the test strip guide.
In addition to fingertip testing, the Accu-Chek Go can be used for testing on alternative sites, including the palm, forearm, upper arm, thigh or calf.1 Alternative site testing requires the use of a special lancet cap.
