Dumb Question: I have boxes and boxes of Accu-Chek Multiclix still in box and sealed in the box. My insurance pays 100%, so I kept on getting them.
My question: Due to they have an expiration date on them and still sealed in the container, can they still be used, or should they be thrown out?
I have found from accu-chek website:
What happens if expired lancets are used?
The use of an expired lancet (drum) may cause an infection at the puncture site; as well the lancet may have lost its sterility. We guarantee 4 years of sterility from the date of manufacture, so you have plenty of time to use up your lancets.
Just would like to know, before I go through boxes and boxes and throught them all out. Thanks in advance.
