* Minimum accuracy requirements of ISO15197: 2013 Section 6.3 standard require ≥95% of the measured values to fall within ±0.83 mmol/L at glucose concentrations <5.5 mmol/L or within ±15% at glucose concentrations ≥5.5 mmol/L compared to the reference method.

** Before use please see the CONTOUR®NEXT user guide for full instructions.

*† Always consult your healthcare provider prior to making changes to your target ranges.

An ad hoc analysis demonstrated that 95% of the results were within the error range ±0.3 mmol/L or ±5.3% of the laboratory reference values (Hexokinase (HK)-based method (Cobas Integra 400 Plus; Roche Instrument Center, Rotkreuz, Switzerland).

§ User performance evaluation included data from 100 participants as required according to ISO 15197:2013, each of whom used every system with one reagent lot. Study personnel observed user techniques.
