 Your Meter Features

Easy:
The CONTOUR TS blood glucose monitoring system is about simplicity. You will
notice its simple approach the first time you see it.

Automatic:
Your CONTOUR TS meter is designed with No Coding technology, to automatically
code itself every time you insert a test strip. It will even tell you when a
test strip is under filled.

NO CODING

Programmed:
Your CONTOUR TS meter has been preset at the factory with the standard date and
time for your convenience. . Your meter has been preset and locked to display results

in
mg/dL (milligrams of glucose per deciliter). In some countries, the meters are
preset to display units in mmol/L

(millimoles of glucose
per liter) Results in mg/dL will never have a decimal point

Results
in mmol/L will always have a decimal point. Example

 96 mg dl or 5.3 mmol/L

Check
your display to ensure that results are being displayed in mg/dL. If they are
not, contact Customer Service. See the back cover for contact information.

 

Information
For Safety

 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. This could lead

to
inaccurate test results.

Wash
and dry your hands well before testing. • ® Test strips are for single use
only. Do not

use
a test strip that appears damaged or has been used

Your
test strip is designed to easily “sip” the

blood
into the sample tip. Do not drop blood directly on the flat surface of the test
strip

Do
not press the test strip against your finger when testing. This may block the
sample tip

 Let the meter and test strips adjust to the temperature
where you are testing.

Whenever
the meter is moved from one location to another, allow approximately 20 minutes
for the meter to adjust to the temperature of a new location before performing
a blood glucose test. The meter has been designed to give

accurate
results at temperatures between 5°C and 45°C.

Check
the expiry dates on your test strips and control solution. It is important to
not use the test strips or control solution if the expiry date printed on the
bottle label and carton has passed. For the control solution do not use if it
has been six months since you first opened the bottle. It will help to write
the six month discard date on the control solution label.

The
following steps are shown in the proper order for performing a blood glucose
test, pages 8 – 12.

 Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC): The
CONTOURTMTS meter complies with the electromagnetic requirement specified in
ISO 15197:2013. Electromagnetic emissions are low and unlikely to interfere
with other nearby electronic equipment, nor are emissions from nearby
electronic equipment likely to interfere with the CONTOUR TS meter. The CONTOUR
TS meter meets the requirements of IEC 61000-4-2 for immunity to electrostatic
discharge. Avoid use of electronic devices in very dry environments, especially
if synthetic materials are present. The CONTOUR TS meter meets the requirements
of IEC 61326-1 for radio frequency interference. To avoid radio frequency
interference, do not use the CONTOURTMTS meter near electrical or electronic
equipment that are sources of electromagnetic radiation, as these may interfere
with the proper operation of the meter.

 Principles
of the Procedure:
The CONTOURTMTS blood glucose test is based on
measurement of electrical current caused by the reaction of the glucose with
the reagent 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.

Comparison
Options:
The CONTOURTMTS system is designed for use with venous and
capillary whole blood. Comparison to a laboratory method must be done
simultaneously with aliquots of the same sample. Note: Glucose concentrations
drop rapidly due to glycolysis (approximately 5% – 7% per hour).

The
following symbols are used throughout the product labeling for the CONTOURTMTS
blood glucose monitoring system (meter packaging and labeling, and test strip
and control solution packaging and labeling).

 User Accuracy A study evaluating
glucose values from fingertip capillary blood samples obtained by 132 lay
persons showed the following results: 100% within +15 mg/dL of the medical
laboratory values at glucose concentrations below 100 mg/dL and 95.6% within
+15% of the medical laboratory glucose concentrations at or above 100 mg/dL.

Precision

A
repeatability study was conducted with the CONTOURTMTS blood glucose monitoring
system using 5 venous whole blood specimens with glucose levels from 40 to 329
mg/dL. Multiple replicates (n=300) were tested using multiple CONTOUR TS blood
glucose meters and 3 lots of CONTOUR TS blood glucose test strips. The
following precision results were obtained.
