Do lancets used with lancing devices for testing Glucose have an expiration date?

Three sets of numbers are displayed on the bottom of the box.First: "lot" written in a small rectangular box 01-121050 on it's right side, next:a square with vertical jagged lines on top #2012-10 next to it and third:a symbol that resembles an hour glass with a darkened bottom half:2017-09 next to it.Are either of the last two expiration dates? Thanks.

Everything in the medical industry has to have an expiration date. In the case of a lancet the manufacture considers that after a certain amount of time the lancet could become dull from moisture in the air and therefore gives them an expiration. In your case the 2017-09 (September 2019).

    Today was my first time joining the fixya community and this was my first question. Can anyone explain how to post questions to right categories? I was in the Medical section but it posted to the Standard (CRT) TV'S listing? Thanks.

Please tell me what the code E-5 means. It shows up on my accu-chek compact plus meter

The information you need is in the reference guide for your meter.

The reference guide can be downloaded from > Related Products

if you have the blue/silver front version (and probably also if you have black version) of the meter, E-5 means
"The measurement optics are dirty or you

have inserted a test strip that has already

been used or is too old. Clean the

measurement optics (Chapter 7.1) and

repeat the test with a new Accu-Chek
Active Glucose test strip."

I can't get my device to "set" for drawing blood

Not 100% sure as I use a different device but after pulling back to set, try placing correct end onto sikn and press the other end to make it work, alternately there may be a button on the side that changes colour that must be pressed. If these do not work try calling the following (888) 469 3579, which should put you in contact with Advocate. Hope this helps
