Industry standards have an acceptable error range of ±15% between the meter reading and the lab reading on the same blood sample.1
CONTOUR® NEXT LINK 2.4 meter provides remarkable accuracy with blood glucose readings that are within ±10% of lab results.2
This means the readings from your CONTOUR® NEXT LINK 2.4 meter may be closer to lab results, which can help you make even better insulin dosing decisions.3
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:
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.
1. Regulations based on Health Canada−recognized ISO 15197:2013 standards require results within ±15%, specifically: ≥95% of results must fall within ±0.83 mmol/L for blood glucose concentrations <5.55 mmol/L and within ±15% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.55 mmol/L.
2. CONTOUR® NEXT LINK 2.4 meter meets ±10% accuracy vs. laboratory method for blood glucose concentrations, specifically: 99.3% of results within ±10% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.55 mmol/L, and 98.4% of results within ±0.56 mmol/L accuracy vs. laboratory method for blood glucose concentrations <5.55 mmol/L.
