An Accu-Chek Aviva with test strips, lancet drum and lancing device (MultiClix)

Accu-Chek is the brand of blood sugar-testing devices (glucose meters) and Insulin Pumps (including the Accu-Chek Combo System) manufactured by Roche Diagnostics, largely for the diabetic market. Accu-Chek is largely regarded as a top blood glucose monitor globally.

Accu-Chek Blood Glucose Monitor Kits contain: - a blood glucose meter which measures blood sugar via an inserted one-time-use strip (Accu-chek Aviva, Accu-chek Aviva Nano), which deploys a lancet marginally through the epidermis of the finger in order to allow a small amount of blood to be squeezed onto the strip in the monitor - a user manual - registration cards for the lifetime warranty.

Accu-Chek has been rated by a majority of users in one study to be "less painful" than competitor blood glucose monitoring systems.[1]
