Contour Next Blood Glucose Test Strips.

The Contour NEXT blood glucose test strips are products that render an easy solution for your testing needs with no coding technology, small blood sample, excellent accuracy, and quick test time.


Test strips are paramount to diabetes management and diabetics are recommended to consult their physicians upon which strips are best suitable for controlling their blood glucose level. The following features best describe the contour next test strips.

Small Sample Size (SSS).

A small blood sample is usually gotten in microliters using a lancet. A single prick from a lancet rarely produces a huge sample of blood. The patient will have to apply a bit of pressure closer to the pierced area to obtain more blood for testing. Fortunately, Contour Next test strips `use a very small sample size of 0.6 microliters and this makes the process of testing very convenient.

Highly Accurate.

Test strips provide rapid and excellent accurate results as they are calibrated for use with the Contour Next range of blood glucose meters. The very small sample size coupled with the no coding technology makes these strips one of the most accurate in the market.

No Coding.

Most diabetes machines are coded manually where you will have to enter a code in the machine so that results do not fluctuate with different test strips, and this often leads to errors due to user miscoding. But the no coding property of the Contour Next strips makes them be fast, very accurate, provides results in seconds, with one less step in testing, and eliminates errors due to user miscoding.


Controls blood glucose levels with at-home monitoring and tiny 0.6 microliter blood sample, that is, one ten thousandths of a teaspoon.

Second-Chance Sampling.

This property allows you to apply more blood to the test strip been used and this prevents wastage of test strips and lancets and saves you the frustration of redoing your test, and also cash.

Product Description.

The Contour Blood Glucose Test Strips are often used with a range of Contour NEST blood Glucose meters, and they offer a solution for your testing needs with proven accuracy, few (small) blood sample, and with no coding technology, thus they are ready to be used right out of the box.

They easily monitor blood glucose levels at home with a highly accurate reading from a tiny 0.6 microliter blood sample. These strips make daily testing easy, and there is high accuracy in terms of results and automatic compensation for many common interfering substances (such as acetaminophen and Vit C).

Contour NEXT Blood Glucose Test Strips also feature second chance sampling allowing you to reapply blood to the test strip been used. This prevents wasting test strips and saves money.

How These Strips Work.

These strips work by a simple chemical reaction where the active compound on the strip consists of the enzyme Flavin Adenine Dinucleotide dependent Glucose Dehydrogenase (FAD-GDH), and an electron mediator. A chemical reaction arises between this active compound (FAD-GDH) and the blood sample after been fitted on the reaction zone of the test strip.

This chemical reaction, which involves FAD-GDH causing electrons to pass from the glucose molecules to the co-factor and mediator in the strip, electrifies the two terminals of these test strips inserted into the glucometer.

New software in the Contour NEXT One meter converts the electrical current measurement into glucose concentrations and displays the result on the meter’s Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen.
