Bayer’s new blood glucose monitoring system, the Contour XT meter, is used exclusively with the Contour NEXT test strips. Together they deliver next generation accuracy for reliable results while remaining simple and easy to use. New innovative technology evaluates a single sample seven times for improved accuracy and No Coding technology eliminates miscoding errors. The meter also provides patients with individualised blood glucose target ranges, important to help with self-management.
Bayer’s Contour XT meter also offers a choice of functions for patients’ individual needs: level 1 testing for patients looking for basic testing and accuracy, and level 2 testing for patients who would like further information and a more detailed understanding of the results. This includes ‘mealtime markers’ to help patients understand how food affects their blood glucose levels and reminders to test after eating. Note that the Contour XT meter uses Contour Next test strips (the Contour XT meter is not compatible with original Contour test strips).
The meter is available free of charge via diabetes nurse. Contour Next strips are available on prescription.
