Blood Glucose Readings May be Further From Lab Results Than You Think
Industry standards have an acceptable error range of ±15%* between the meter reading and the lab reading on the same blood sample.
This means that your blood glucose meter reading could actually be 15% higher or 15% lower than the true value of the glucose in your blood.
CONTOUR NEXT meters go above the industry standard by providing blood glucose readings that are within ±10% of the lab reading. This means that the reading you get from CONTOUR NEXT meters will be closer to the lab results.
Accurate Readings Can Help You Make The Right Decisions When They Matter Most
You depend on your meter to help you make important decisions with respect to blood glucose management. For example, you might rely on your meter to:
Allow you to make more accurate insulin dosing decisions
Tell you if your blood glucose is too low (hypoglycemia), too high (hyperglycemia) or just right
Help you make decisions about your food, activity and medications
To have confidence that you are making the right decisions based on accurate readings, you need the values on your meter to reflect your actual blood glucose as closely as possible. A reading that is off by 15% vs. a reading that is off by only 10% could mean that you inject too much insulin or eat too little carbohydrates, which could put you at risk for a hypoglycemic episode.
Highly accurate readings, such as those provided by the CONTOUR NEXT meters, can help you make the right decisions when they matter most.
The Contour Next Test Strips Features:
- Second-Chance sampling
- Easy Sip-In Sampling automatic strip filling action that helps you test correctly the first try
- Accuracy even at low blood glucose levels
- No Coding technology
Second-Chance sampling lets you apply more blood to the same strip if you didn’t get enough the first time, helping to prevent wasted strips.
Coding is an adjustment made to the meter's electronic system to make sure the meter matches the blood glucose test strips and to ensure an accurate reading for every test.
All CONTOUR meters feature the No Coding technology. This means they code automatically the second you insert the test strip. Manual coding is not required. No Coding technology helps ensure you get accurate readings, so you and your healthcare team can make decisions confidently and properly manage your diabetes.
