Please read the User’s Manual carefully before the first use. The installation, use and maintenance/data backup of the
Accu-Chek Smart Pix software are the sole responsibility of the user. Roche Diagnostics accepts no responsibility for any
damage or loss resulting from non-compliance with this User’s Manual.
In addition, we advise you to refrain from installing any software on your computer which is not from a trustworthy source
and to protect your computer against unauthorised third-party access. This particularly applies to the security of any existing Internet access. Please use up-to-date software for virus protection and your firewall and install the security updates
and patches recommended by the manufacturers.
The USB flash drive is the original medium used to provide the software, but it is not a removable medium for storing data
you have created yourself. Avoid potential data loss (e.g., from damage to or loss of the USB flash drive) and always store
all files locally on your computer or on a network server.
Do not remove the USB flash drive containing the Accu-Chek Smart Pix software while data is being exchanged. Doing so
could cause irreparable damage to files.

Important note: The displayed blood glucose Status will only be meaningful if the settings have been properly
selected. We therefore strongly recommend that you talk to your healthcare team before you change the
configuration for Hypo risk, Mean blood glucose and Variability.
The number of tests per test day must be sufficient in order to draw appropriate conclusions regarding therapy
from the statistical analysis. In addition, the tests must be conducted at meaningful points in time spread over the
course of the day. Only then does the analysis in the Status report element correctly reflect the relevant blood
glucose parameter. If, for example, blood glucose is only tested when blood glucose levels are within the normal
range (euglycaemia) or higher range (hyperglycaemia), the Hypo risk is artificially lowered.
i
i
Important note: The Hypo limit can only be a reliable indicator of hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose) if the limit
has been properly selected. We therefore strongly recommend that you talk to your healthcare professional or
healthcare team before you change the limit. This function is not a substitute for hypoglycaemia training by your
healthcare professional or healthcare team.
Important note: Never make changes to your therapy plan based on data contained in the Status report element;
always talk to your healthcare team first.

Connecting the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device and/or USB cable
Connecting the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device
Insert the USB plug of the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device to a
free USB port on your computer. You can do this while your
computer is either on or off. This connection provides the
Accu-Chek Smart Pix device with power and it therefore
does not need a battery or a power pack.
After connecting the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device and, as the
case may be, turning on the computer, the central luminous
surface as well as the left and right lights light up. Simultaneously, the computer recognizes the Accu-Chek Smart Pix
device as a removable media (similar to a USB flash drive). The
luminous surface then begins to flash. Different light signals
indicate various operating statuses. After connecting the
Accu-Chek Smart Pix device or after turning on the computer,
the following display indicates fully-functional operation.
•
The top/bottom dots flash slowly (approximately once
per second).
This display indicates operational readiness and active
searching for meters and/or pumps. The Accu-Chek
Smart Pix system is now ready to read data from these
devices.

Chapter 2, Prior to using the Accu-Chek Smart Pix software
Installing USB drivers
If you want to read data from a meter with a USB port, the
corresponding PHDC Continua driver must be installed
before you connect the meter. You will find the installation
programs required in the Accu-Chek USB drivers folder.
Open the folder with the same name as the desired meter
and then the folder ...Driver (for 32-bit operating systems)
or ...Driver X64 (for 64-bit operating systems). Start the
installation program contained in the folder (dpinst.exe or
dpinst64.exe) and follow the instructions on the screen.
i
Administrator access rights are required for installing
the USB driver software.
Once the installation finishes, the computer can communicate
with the selected meter.
Connecting the USB cable
For meters with a built-in USB port, you will need a suitable
USB cable (USB type A to the computer and micro USB type
B to the meter). In order to transfer data, connect the cable to
the meter first and then to the computer.
Insert the USB plug of the cable to a free USB port on your
computer. You can do this while your computer is either on
or off.

Automatic features
Automatic features help you simplify the following tasks:
•
Importing device data and (if applicable) adding it to
an existing record.
•
Automatically printing device data.
•
Automatically saving device data.
•
Automatically download and install software updates.
The term “record” encompasses all the data read from
devices (with manual additions, if applicable) and assigned
to a certain person. Data read from the device will always be
saved (either to a new or an existing record) unless you
select No when reading from the device. If, in such a case,
you do not manually save the imported data later, it will only
be displayed temporarily and will be deleted with the next
import.
When importing data from a device for the first time, a new
record can be created or the device can be assigned to an
existing record. The data from further imports from the same
device(s) is added to the existing data of that person.

Time range: The Time range setting defines the
number of days or weeks whose results will be
displayed and analysed in the reports together.

Meal segments: In some report elements, results are
assigned to defined meal segments. These meal segments divide the day into eight periods typical for the
patient, and they refer to meal or sleep times.

Status: The statements and statistics displayed in the
Status report element refer to specified target values
or target ranges and the deviation of the measured
values from these. Here you can define these target
values and target ranges that will also be used in other
report elements.
– Select the Unit (mmol/L or mg/dL) to use for
setting the Target range for blood glucose results.
– Choose whether to set the Variability in “% mean
bG” and/or as a fixed value (“mmol/L” or “mg/dL”).
– Mean bG: The representation of the mean blood
glucose value (mean value of all blood glucose
values in the selected time range) is defined by the
upper and lower limit as well as the hypoglycaemia
limit and the lower limit of the red area that indicates that the mean blood glucose is too high. By
setting these limits, you determine the values that
fall within the target range (green), above or below
the target range (yellow) or below the hypo limit
and above the lower limit of the red area that indicates that the mean blood glucose is too high.
i
Accu-Chek Smart Pix software User’s Manual
If you wish to use the lower limit of the target range as
an indicator of a possible hypoglycaemia (low blood
glucose), it is important to remember the following:
the indicator will only be reliable if the limit has been
properly selected. We therefore strongly recommend
that you talk to your healthcare professional before
you set the limit. This function is no substitute for
hypoglycaemia training by your healthcare professional or healthcare team.

time range.
By setting meal segments, you divide a 24-hour day into eight
periods which are determined by important regular events
(e.g., main meals). For each meal segment, you can specify
the start time while the end time is automatically the start
time for the next period.

All results will be displayed in the chart
as linear values. Each test result is plotted along the time axis
according to the time when the test was performed. Test
results performed within a 10-hour period are connected by
a line. This creates (angular) “curves” which, together with
the actual test result entry, allow you to obtain a detailed
analysis of individual results and trends.

Metabolic control
For each day of the analysed time range, its mean blood
glucose value and standard deviation (SD/variance of the
values) are calculated. These two results together provide
the coordinates for making an entry (per day) in the chart.
The mean blood glucose value is plotted along the y-axis
while the standard deviation is plotted along the x-axis.
This type of presentation produces a “scatter plot”. To
facilitate faster assessment of your metabolic state from this
overview, the chart is split up into four “quadrants”. Each of
these quadrants represents a certain metabolic constitution
and is described by the attributes “stable/unstable” (referring
to standard deviation) and “low/high” (referring to mean
bloodglucose values). This gives each quadrant two
attributes.
Example:
Mean blood glucose values below 8.3 mmol/L (or 150 mg/dL)
with a standard deviation of less than 2.8 mmol/L (or 50 mg/dL)
are plotted in the bottom left quadrant. Its attributes are
“stable-low”. If both values are above these limits, the entry is
made in the top right-hand quadrant (“unstable-high”).
Two ellipses are plotted, centred around the mean value of
all represented levels (marked by a blue cross). They illustrate the variance of the daily mean values and the daily
blood glucose variability over the selected time range as a
simple (1 SD) and two-fold (2 SD) standard deviation of the
displayed values.
Good metabolic control can be recognised by the fact that
there are as many dots as possible in the “stable-low”
quadrant (bottom left) while there are no cases of hypoglycaemia, or as few as possible, in the respective time
range.

•
bG test frequency: Average number of blood glucose
tests per day for each day of the analysed time range.

was performed at least once, is also displayed (in
brackets).
•
Mean blood glucose: Mean value of all analysed
results.
•
Standard deviation (SD): Standard deviation or
variance of the analysed results.
•
SD / Mean bG: This value indicates the variability of
the blood glucose values with reference to the mean
value. If the mean value is in the desired range, a ratio
of less than 50 % (or better: 30 %) indicates a desirably
low variability and thus good metabolic control.
•
Mean bG before/after meal: Mean value from all
results which have been obtained before or after
meals and have been marked in the meter accordingly. Values are displayed only when appropriate
information is stored in the meter.

Logbook
The logbook creates a tabular overview of blood glucose test
results. The table of values (sorted by date and meal segments) is created according to the date and time information
of the blood glucose results. Values without any date or time
information will not be displayed in the logbook. They are,
however, contained in the Diary report element.
If the meter transfers the Before meal
or After meal
information related to the test results, an enhanced statistical
analysis will be displayed at the bottom. The defined eight
meal segments are summarised into four groups, each
containing one meal plus the period before and after the
meal. Mean values and standard deviations are calculated
separately (before/after meal) for each of these groups. For
paired values, the average change of the blood glucose
result is also calculated. Such a paired value results from
performing a first test before
and a second test after
the meal, with the second test occurring within one or two
hours after the first test.
If the analysed time range contains blood glucose values
which are marked as a User-defined event, separate
statistics are calculated and displayed for these.

This report element shows the trend in insulin dosage over
the selected time range. You will find the days and months
along the horizontal (x) axis and the respective amounts of
insulin delivered along the vertical (y) axis.
The basal rate chart is at the bottom, and the individual
boluses are shown at the top. Therefore, you will find the
basal rate scale along the left-hand y-axis (bottom up) and
the scale for the boluses along the right-hand y-axis (top

Various events are also displayed in addition to the insulin
dose. These are:
•
Pump events
•
Switch of the basal rate profile
•
Changes in basal rate
The various icons are explained briefly in the legend; for

Day graph
This report element is used (as with blood glucose) to facilitate recognition or illustration of patterns recurring on a daily
basis. For this purpose, all data is placed on a 24-hour grid.
This allows you to easily recognise frequent manual basal
rate changes at certain times, e.g., to facilitate general
adjustment of the basal rate.
The mean basal rate is displayed as an area coloured in blue;
the maximum and minimum basal rate at the respective time
of day is shown as a thin blue line.
In this chart, you will not only find basal rates and boluses
but also information about the start and stop of the insulin
pump and about a temporary decrease or increase in the
basal rate.
Week graph
This report element is also used (as with the Day graph) to
facilitate recognition of recurring patterns (e.g., repeated
basal rate changes), but here the reference point is the day
of the week.
In this chart, you will not only find basal rates and boluses
but also information about basal rate changes and the
selection of basal rate profiles.

Basal rates
This report element displays the basal rates set in the insulin
pump at the time of data transfer in order to facilitate
comparison. The currently active basal rate profile can be
identified by the thicker dark blue line. The total daily
amounts of the respective profiles are indicated in the legend,
and the active basal rate profile is highlighted in colour.
A tabular representation of the basal rates is displayed below
the chart.
The table view contains the specified amount of insulin per
hour as a numeric value in a 24-hour grid. All basal rate
profiles are displayed one below the other. The active basal
rate profile is displayed in bold.

Chapter 5, Reports and records
Basal bolus
The tabular Basal bolus report element shows the (absolute
and relative) frequency with which, e.g., a certain basal rate
profile or bolus type was used.
Basal rate
Here you can see, for example, how often the basal rate of a
certain basal rate profile was temporarily increased or
decreased and how long (as a percentage) it remained in
this changed state. If there are frequent changes and/or if
manually changed basal rates are used for a long time, you
may need to make general adjustments.
The number of times the basal rate has been reprogrammed
is displayed in the last column. For the sake of completeness,
the Basal rate table also includes the times when the insulin
pump was in STOP mode.
Bolus
This table shows both the (relative) frequency of use with
regard to certain types of bolus and their average number
per day. The proportion of boluses which were delivered
using bolus advice is represented in a different colour
(orange).
Means per day
Here you will find the average values for basal and bolus
insulin as well as their percentage of the total amount.
