Accu-Check Compact Plus Test Strips are a convenient way to manage your day to day glucose testing while still providing fast accurate test results. Their handy 17 strip pre-loaded drums eliminate the need to handle small individual test strips. Diabetics who have attempted to load sometimes tiny strips into a blood-glucose meter can attest to how frustrating it can be. Small required blood samples and alternate site testing make Accu Chek Test Strips one of the least painful glucose test strips on the market. This system is designed for simple use by people of all ages, thanks to features such as auto calibration and automatic loading and discarding of test strips.
An important feature of any testing system for diabetics is the ease of use. Accu Chek Compact Plus systems are very easy to use, and the strips reflect the sensibility behind the whole system. The strips are excellent for patients suffering from arthritis as well as young patients who are learning to monitor and manage their diabetes; the pre-loaded test strips are easy to use, which contributes to greater adherence to monitoring programs set up by a physician. Keeping up with doctor's recommendations is of vital importance for diabetics, because well-regulated blood sugar means the difference between a healthy lifestyle and serious complications.
The Accu-Chek Compact Plus system also requires a very small sample size, which means that alternative testing sites are allowed with this meter, setting it apart from many of its competitors. The strips are optimized for alternate-site testing, offering results in as little as 8 seconds. The strips and the system only require a 1.5 microliter blood sample; this means that blood can be taken from almost anywhere on the body and provide an accurate reading. Because the system also functions almost automatically updating the count of strips left in the current load, for example it's a more carefree system than many others, and the strips are recommended by many physicians because of the easy-load features. If you are squeamish or dislike handling used strips, these strips are used by the system in such a way that you need never touch them once they're loaded - an excellent plus for many patients. The 1.5 microliter sample size means that you can be confident that your results are absolutely accurate; even though the sample is tiny, it is very easy to obtain, and analysis isn't plagued by potential errors that some other systems with infinitesimally small samples can have.
