 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).
