No Coding technology

PRE- AND POST-MEAL MARKERS

CONTOUR®'s pre- and post-meal markers and test reminder, with 7-, 14-, and 30-day averages, help your patients understand and monitor their postprandial plasma glucose (PPG). PPG is an important glycemic target and contributes significantly to overall glycemia in patients with an A1C level equal to or below 8.4%.1-5

PROGRAMMABLE HI/LO SETTINGS

Personalized target ranges and test result summary help patients identify trouble spots such as hypoglycemia. The ADA guidelines recommend that for non-pregnant adults glycemic goals should be individualized based on:6

  • Duration of diabetes
  • Age/life expectancy
  • Comorbid conditions
  • Known CVD or advanced microvascular complications
  • Hypoglycemia unawareness
  • Individual patient considerations

With the CONTOUR® programmable HI/LO settings, your patients' meters can be personalized to account for their unique monitoring needs

With 99.3% accuracy, the CONTOUR® meter meets International Organization for Standardization accuracy requirements. (ISO15197:2003) CONTOUR® features were designed to reduce sources of error:

  • No Coding™ technology
