General Questions

Keep your lancet drums clean and protect them from extremes of temperature. Do not store them in a hot car or in the refrigerator.

Clean your lancing device regularly to keep it in good working condition. If any blood gets on it, always wipe it away immediately. Clean the outside of the lancing device only. Wipe it once a week with a cloth lightly moistened with water. To disinfect, use 70 % isopropanol. Check your package insert for detailed instructions on how to clean the lancing device.

  1. Check whether the lancet number (or number of bars) is visible in the window. If not, turn the priming button until the lancet number (or bars) becomes visible.
  2. Check whether the yellow area in the transparent release button is visible. If this is the case, the lancing device is already primed and ready for use.

Check the lancet window to see whether there are any white bars or numbers visible in the lancet display. If there are no bars visible or the number 1 is displayed, you are using the last lancet and the lancet drum needs to be changed for a new lancet drum.

This can be caused by several reasons:

  1. The penetration depth is too shallow for your skin. Please select a higher penetration depth setting.
  2. The lancing device needs to be pressed firmly against the skin
  3. Check to ensure a lancet drum is inserted in the lancing device.
    Please also check the instructions of use of the lancing device.
