Your CONTOUR® USB Blood Glucose Monitoring System
The CONTOUR USB blood
glucose monitoring system
(meter, test strips and controls)
is intended for self-testing by
people with diabetes and by
healthcare professionals to
monitor glucose concentrations in whole blood. Capillary
samples may be drawn from
alternative site testing locations. The CONTOUR USB
system is not intended for the
diagnosis of or screening for
diabetes mellitus and is not
intended for use on neonates.
The MICROLET®2 lancing device
included in the kit is not suitable for
use by healthcare professionals. It
must not be used on more than
one person due to the risk of
infection. Used test strips and
lancets are possible biohazard and
must be disposed of properly.

• Your meter has been preset and locked to display
results in mmol/L (millimoles of glucose per liter).
In some countries, the meters are preset to display
units in mg/dL (milligrams of glucose per deciliter);
• Results in mmol/L will always have a decimal point;
• Results in mg/dL will never have a decimal point.
Example:
or
Check your screen to ensure that results are
being displayed in mmol/L. If they are not,
contact Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline,
1-800-268-7200.
Before You Begin Testing:
1. Have your testing materials ready, including
your CONTOUR® USB meter, CONTOUR ®
test strips, and the MICROLET®2 lancing
device with MICROLET® lancets. You may also
need CONTOUR ® control solution to run a
quality control check.
2. Wash your hands and “puncture site”
thoroughly with warm soapy water and
dry them well before testing.
www.bayerdiabetes.ca
Getting
Started
Always keep the test strips in the original bottle.
Tightly close the bottle immediately after
removing a test strip. The bottle is designed to keep
the test strips dry. Exposure to room humidity from leaving
the bottle open or not storing them in the original bottle
can damage your test strips.
Do not drop blood directly on the flat surface of
the test strip. Your test strip is designed to easily “sip”
the blood into the sample tip.
Do not press the test strip against your finger.
This may block the sample tip.
Test strips are for single use only.
Do not use a test strip that appears damaged or
has been used.
Let the meter and test strips adjust to the
temperature of the location where you are testing.
Allow 20 minutes for the meter to adjust to the temperature
of that new location before performing a blood glucose test.
The products have been designed to give accurate results
at temperatures between 5°C and 45°C. Please be aware
that USB ports in some computers and self-powered USB
hubs can become much warmer than the room. A USB
cable has been provided for your convenience. If you
wish to test immediately after disconnecting from your
computer, please use the USB cable.
Check the expiration dates on your test strips
and control solution.

sterile after use.
1. To remove the endcap,
hold the device with
your thumb on the grip
indent and hold the
endcap dial in the other
hand. Snap the endcap
off from top to bottom.

IMPORTANT: Do not use Alternative Site
Testing under the following conditions. Use
fingertip testing in any of these cases:
• If you think your blood glucose is low
(hypoglycemia).
• When blood glucose is changing rapidly
(after a meal, insulin dose or exercise).
• If you have hypoglycemic unawareness
(lack of symptoms).
• If you get alternative site blood glucose
results that do not agree with how you feel.
• During illness or times of stress.
• If you will be driving a car or operating
machinery.
Consult your healthcare professional to
determine if alternative site testing is right
for you.
Alternative site results may be different from fingertip results when glucose levels are changing rapidly
(e.g., after a meal, after taking insulin, or during or
after exercise). Additionally, glucose levels may not
rise as high or fall as low as levels in the fingertip.
As such, fingertip results may identify hypoglycemic
levels sooner than alternative site results.

Intended Use:
The CONTOUR® USB system (meter, test strips and
control) is intended for self-testing by people with
diabetes to monitor glucose concentrations in whole
blood. Capillary samples may be drawn from alternative
site testing locations. The test provides a quantitative
measurement of glucose in blood from 1.1 to 33.3 mmol/L.
The CONTOUR USB system is not intended for the
diagnosis of or screening for diabetes mellitus and is
not intended for use on neonates.
CAUTION:
• For in vitro diagnostic use only.
• Potential Biohazard:
The CONTOUR USB meter is intended for use
with only one person. All products or
objects that come in contact with human
blood, even after cleaning, should be handled as
if capable of transmitting viral diseases.3

Principles of the Procedure:
The CONTOUR® blood glucose test is based on measurement of electrical current caused by the reaction of
glucose with the reagents on the electrode of the strip.
The blood sample is drawn into the tip of the test strip
through capillary action. Glucose in the sample reacts with
FAD glucose dehydrogenase (FAD-GDH) and potassium
ferricyanide. Electrons are generated, producing a current
that is proportional to the glucose in the sample. After
the reaction time, the glucose concentration in the
sample is displayed. No calculation is required.

End of Meter Life/Battery Removal:
• Preservatives: Blood may be collected by healthcare
professionals into test tubes containing heparin.
Do not use other anticoagulants or preservatives.
• Altitude: Up to 3048 meters (10,000 feet) does not
significantly affect results.
• Lipemic Specimen: Cholesterol concentrations
>12.9 mmol/L or triglyceride concentrations
>34.3 mmol/L may produce elevated readings.
• Peritoneal dialysis solutions: Icodextrin does not
interfere with CONTOUR ® test strips.
• Xylose: Do not use during or soon after xylose
absorption testing. Xylose in the blood will cause
an interference.
• Contraindications: Capillary blood glucose testing
may not be clinically appropriate for persons with
reduced peripheral blood flow. Shock, severe
hypotension, hyperosmolar hyperglycemia and severe
dehydration are examples of clinical conditions that
may adversely affect the measurement of glucose in
peripheral blood.4
• Interference: Reducing substances occurring in the
blood naturally (uric acid, bilirubin) or from therapeutic
treatments (ascorbic acid, acetaminophen) will not
significantly affect results. The limiting concentrations
of these compounds are listed in your test strip insert.
Accuracy: The accuracy of the CONTOUR ® USB blood
glucose monitoring system has been assessed in a
correlation study conducted by healthcare professionals. In
this study 100 fresh capillary blood specimens were tested
with the CONTOUR USB blood glucose monitoring
system by 100 untrained people with diabetes using three
test strip lots. The reference measurement was done on
the YSI™ Glucose analyzer. CONTOUR USB data compare
well with the results from the YSI method.
