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.
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.
‡ CONTOUR®NEXT meter should not be used for diagnosis or for screening neonates for hypoglycemia. Diagnosis of neonatal hypoglycemia should be performed using a laboratory glucose method. For neonates with hypoglycemic symptoms, appropriate medical care to treat symptoms should be used and patients should be monitored. If symptoms are inconsistent with meter results, your healthcare professional should obtain a laboratory blood glucose test. The CONTOUR®NEXT blood glucose monitoring system has not been evaluated specifically with pre-term neonates
* Current regulation based on Health Canada recognized ISO 15197:2013 standard requires results within ±15% range, 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. † CONTOUR®NEXT meter meets ±10% accuracy vs. laboratory method, specifically: 98.1% of results within ±10% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.55 mmol/L, and 99.4% of results within ±0.56 mmol/L accuracy vs. laboratory method for blood glucose concentrations <5.55 mmol/L.
Insert the grey end of a CONTOUR®NEXT test strip into the meter. The meter will turn on.
When the Apply Blood screen appears, lightly touch a drop of blood to the test strip. Hold it there until the meter beeps.
Choose your Autolog selection and press OK. Wait 5 seconds. At the end of the countdown, your test result will be displayed. To turn the meter off, simply remove the test strip.
