Go beyond the standard.
Canadian industry standards for blood glucose meters have an acceptable error range of 15%1 from lab readings. That means that readings on a meter can be 15% higher or lower, compared to the lab. CONTOUR® NEXT meter results go beyond the industry standards, by coming within 10% of a lab reading2. And a more accurate reading can help you make even better insulin dosing decisions3.
1 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 <5.6 mmol/L and within ±15% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.6 mmol/L.
2 CONTOUR® NEXT meter meets ±10% accuracy vs. laboratory method, specifically: 98.1% of results within ±10% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.6 mmol/L, and 99.4% of results within ±0.56 mmol/L accuracy vs. laboratory method for blood glucose concentrations <5.6 mmol/L.
