I found a web site that was about Accu-Chex. I can't find it again any one know what it's address is? I need to find out if my Accu-Chek multiclix is broken. Do you know if they stop when used up. Do you know if it will continue udse lancets over again. I changed it today because I think it is useing them over again.

Thank you for the information. It a wonder I didn't get a bad infection. Because I did no know that I needed to twist the top. I have a problem remembering things I have read.

Thank you

You can use the same one as many times as you want, it only changes when you twist the end and it wont let you twist it if it's the last one in the drum. If you look at the end the white bars signify how many new lancets are left in the drum.

I rarely twist mine let alone change the drum!

Thank you for talking to me about the lancet. It say's on the box that each cartrage holds 100 +2. My test strips are 100 in each canister. I had used the lancets since October with no change. So I was getting a little concerned.

No, each cartridge holds 6 lancets and box contains 17 cartridges. You have to twist the plunger to move to the next one and it won't let you go past the last one. If you haven't been twisting the plunger then you will have been using the same lancet over and over.
