With Bayer's proprietary new blood glucose sensor technology, the CONTOUR Next EZ system delivers advanced accuracy that notably exceeds the requirements of ISO 15197:2003.  The proprietary electrochemical mediator and meter algorithm utilized in the CONTOUR Next EZ blood glucose monitoring system provides a stable, high signal-to-noise ratio that facilitates accurate determination of blood glucose readings, even at low blood glucose levels.  The new technology also ensures that the system remains accurate under a wide range of storage conditions, corrects for common errors and is not affected by hematocrit or many common interfering substances in the blood (e.g. acetaminophen, vitamin C).

The new CONTOUR Next EZ system was tested in a number of studies[1],[2],[3],[4],[5] around the globe in which it consistently showed excellent performance in the hands of healthcare providers as well as patients.
