Bayer's CONTOUR Glucose Test Strips provide automatically corrected and highly accurate blood glucose level readings when used with the CONTOUR USB meter and the CONTOUR meter.
Bayer's CONTOUR Glucose Test Strips are used with the CONTOUR® USB meter and the CONTOUR® meter in order to accurately measure blood glucose levels. No Coding™ technology self codes when the strip is inserted, eliminating inaccurate readings due to user miscoding. These strips features Sip-In® Sampling that quickly sips in your blood sample (0.6-µL sample is preferable) and completes the blood glucose test in just five seconds. The CONTOUR Strips automatically correct for common interfering substances such as acetaminophen, ascorbic acid, and hematocrit. The strips are also unaffected by maltose, galactose, and oxygen, but should not be used during or soon after xylose absorption testing. Make sure that your blood glucose readings are as accurate as possible with Bayer's CONTOUR Glucose Test Strips.
- Unaffected by maltose, galactose, and oxygen*
- Automatic correction for common interfering substances such as acetaminophen, ascorbic acid, and hematocrit
- Fast 5-second test time
- Small 0.6-µL blood sample
- No Coding™ technology automatically sets the correct code so there's no chance of inaccurate results due to user miscoding a meter
- Sip-In® Sampling quickly sips in your blood sample
*Affected by xylose. Do not use during or soon after xylose absorption testing.
Bayer test strips help ensure accuracy
- No Coding™ technology automatically calibrates to account for variability in reactivity of test strips
- GDH-FAD (CONTOUR®) and GO (BREEZE®) test strip chemistry may be used in testing patients with maltose or galactose in their system — 2 of the non-glucose sugars cited in a 2009 FDA public health notice1*
- Interfering products containing non-glucose sugars include:1
- Extraneal (icodextrin) peritoneal dialysis solution
- Some immunoglobulins
- Orencia® (abatacept)
- Adept® adhesion reduction solution (4% icodextrin)
- BEXXAR® radioimmunotherapy agent
Neither BREEZE® (GO) nor CONTOUR® (GDH-FAD) testing platforms use GDH-PQQ chemistry. Testing devices that use GDH-PQQ chemistry can report falsely elevated blood glucose result due to non-glucose sugar interference, which can lead to serious injury or death.1 Visit fda.gov/medicaldevices/safety/alertsandnotices/publichealthnotifications/ucm176992.htm for more information.
