How Do I Test?

Before performing your first test on your CoaguChek XS Meter, please be aware of the following hints and tips

The CoaguChek XS or INRange Meter:

  • Is for your use only
  • It should be placed on a flat surface when in use

Test Strips:

  • Please put the lid back on the pot as soon as a test strip is removed

Code Chip

  • The correct code chip must be inserted (this can cause an error if incorrect)

Lancing Device

  • Only use your own lancets/lancing device


  • Are single use only


  • Record your INR in your yellow book

The Care Line Team can offer one to one training over the telephone. They will walk you through the whole set up process, right the way through from putting the batteries in your meter, to performing your first test.

Your CoaguChek Meter kit will have been supplied with an instructional DVD. Please ensure you watch this before completing your first test. You can view the video online {link}
