Contour Glucose Strips are Glucose test strips intended for use by individuals with diabetes to monitor their blood glucose levels. These test strips are specifically designed to be used with Contour glucose meters, which are compact devices used for measuring blood sugar levels.

Contour Glucose Strips utilize "No Coding" technology, meaning they do not require manual coding or calibration. They are known for their fast test time and are designed to provide accurate results in just a few seconds after applying a small blood sample to the strip. The strips are designed to easily draw in the blood for testing, and they typically require a small sample size, making them potentially less invasive for users.

The Contour glucose strips are designed to be used with the Contour blood glucose monitoring systems, such as the Contour Next or Contour Plus meters. These test strips work by measuring the amount of glucose in a small blood sample.

Use and Dosage

To use Contour glucose strips, here are the general steps based on the information gathered from the search results:

  1. Insert the test strip: Insert the grey end of the Contour glucose test strip into the Contour blood glucose meter. The meter should turn on automatically.
  2. Prepare the lancet: Use a lancet device to prick your finger and obtain a small drop of blood. Follow the instructions provided with the lancet device for proper usage.
  3. Apply blood to the strip: When the meter displays the "Apply Blood" screen, lightly touch the drop of blood to the channel or port on the test strip. Hold it there until the meter beeps or indicates that it has received enough blood.
  4. Wait for the result: The meter will begin analyzing the blood sample, and after a few seconds, it will display your blood glucose level on its screen.
  5. Record your result: Record your blood glucose readings in a logbook or on a digital device for future reference or to share with your healthcare provider.

Safely dispose of the used Contour glucose test strip according to the instructions provided with the meter.
