1. Current regulation based on Health Canada recognized ISO 15197:2013 standard requires results within ±15% range, specifically: ≥95% of results must fall within ±0.83 mmoL/L for blood glucose concentrations <5.55 mmoL/L and within ±15% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.55 mmoL/L.
CONTOUR®NEXT ONE meter meets ±10% accuracy vs. laboratory method, specifically: 97.4% of results within ±10% for blood glucose concentrations ≥5.55 mmol/L, and 100% of results within ±0.56 mmol/L accuracy vs. laboratory method for blood glucose concentrations <5.55 mmol/L.
In a clinical study, conducted in accordance with the requirements of ISO 15197:2013, the CONTOUR®NEXT ONE not only met and exceeded the minimum requirements of the standard but an ad hoc analysis determined where 95% of results fell during the study, which was within ±0.47 mmol/L or ±8.4% of the laboratory reference value for glucose concentrations <5.55 mmoL/L or ≥ 5.55 mmoL/L, respectively, when tested via subject obtained capillary fingertip results (patients).
