Training & support for CoaguChek® users
 

Before you begin

If you are a candidate for PT/INR self-testing but have not yet purchased a CoaguChek® device, talk to your doctor or visit your local CoaguChek website and say yes to the freedom and reassurance of self-testing with CoaguChek.

Getting started

If you have purchased your CoaguChek device and need more information on its use, we offer several helpful resources.

You will find tips and tools designed to make self-testing your PT/INR values even easier, including dietary, fitness and travel advice, patient stories and product handling videos.

Speak with your local support organization. It may be that local training centers have been organized in your area for face to face training. Select your country in the drop down list in the top navigation to be taken to your local CoaguChek website for more information and support.

CoaguChek handling videos

For assistance in using your CoaguChek device, these handling videos will help you to set up your device and take your first measurement.
