Non-USA member of the Accu Check glucometer family : Performa Nano

Accu-Check Performa Nano is the same member of the Accu Check glucometer family as very similar Accu-Chek Nano, but it's distributed on some non-USA markets (the same story as Accu-Chek Aviva Nano). Both glucometers have the same design and features, but some difference in software.

The Accu Check glucometer model called Performa Nano allows diabetics to test in half the steps, with lancets included in a pre-loaded drum. The Nano glucometer takes a very small blood sample. Its on-board computer can return averages (7, 14, 30 and 90 day), produce meal markers and set 4 customisable test reminder alarms. Post-meal Reminder reminds user to test 1 or 2 hours after marking a pre-meal result. Out-of-range temperature lockout prevents user from performing a test when the system is out of the normal operating temperature range of 6°C to 44°C (43°F to 111°F).

The glucometer has hypo indicator, general marker and auto control ID. Large brilliant backlit display is perfect for testing in low-light conditions.
This Accu Check glucometer comes with data management software such as Accu-Check Smart Pix and Accu-Check 360° Diabetes Management System.

How to use Accu-Check glucometer (Performa Nano)

  1. First, thoroughly wash hands with warm water and dry them well.
  2. Put a test strip into the glucometer, and verify that the code number displayed on the screen matches the code number on a test strip container.
  3. Both a test strip and flashing blood drop symbol will appear on the glucometer's display.
  4. With Accu-Chek SoftClix or Accu-Chek MultiClix lancing device, lance the side of a fingertip (or alternate site if appropriate). Squeeze the fingertip gently to produce a small  drop of blood.
  5. Touch the drop to the tip of the yellow end of the test strip (not on a top of the strip or window). A flashing hourglass symbol and a "beep" sound indicate that enough blood has been applied. If necessary, more blood can be applied within 5 seconds. The result will appear on the display.

The Accu-Check Performa Nano glucometer can be used for testing on alternate sites. It requires the use of a special lancing cap. Consult your doctor to see if alternate site testing is suitable for you.
