CONTOUR®NEXT test strips can be used with CONTOUR®NEXT GEN, CONTOUR®NEXT ONE, CONTOUR®NEXT GEN, CONTOUR®NEXT EZ, CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 , CONTOUR®NEXT LINK and CONTOUR®NEXT USB blood glucose meters
Your test strip is designed to easily "sip" the blood into a sample tip. Only a small 0.6µl sample size is needed.
Second-Chance® sampling allows you 60 seconds to apply more blood to the same strip if the first sample was insufficient with CONTOUR®NEXT GEN and CONTOUR®NEXT ONE meters and 30 seconds with CONTOUR®NEXT and CONTOUR®NEXT EZ.
CONTOUR®NEXT test strips deliver results that are unaffected by many common interfering substances occuring naturally in the blood (e.g. cholesterol or hemoglobin) and occuring from therapeutic treatments such as paracetamol or ibuprofen and others.2,3
CONTOUR®NEXT strips are available as packages of 50 or 100 strips in Canada. They are compatible with all the listed meter models below.
