Use Accu-Chek Compact Plus Clear control solution instead of blood to run a control test to ensure that your Accu-Chek Compact Plus and Accu-Chek Compact Plus or Accu-Chek Compact test strips work properly and provide reliable results. When running a control test with Accu-Chek Compact Plus Clear control solution, the Accu-Chek Compact Plus system automatically detects that you are not using blood. Refer to the Accu-Chek Compact Plus System’s Owner's Booklet for information on when a control test should be run.
Apply a drop of the control solution to a single test strip (instead of blood), then compare the test results to the control range which is located on your test strip vial. If the results are in the proper control range, then your glucose meter is working correctly.
If the results are outside the control range it is advised to contact the meter’s manufacturer immediately. It is advised to run control tests: monthly, every time you purchase new test strips, when you believe your glucose meter is malfunctioning or when you change your glucose monitor's batteries.
