New Blood Glucose Meters, Contour® And Breeze®2, Now Available In Pharmacies Nationwide, USA: "New Blood Glucose Meters, Contour® And Breeze®2, Now Available In Pharmacies Nationwide, USA"
Bayer Diabetes Care, a division of Bayer HealthCare LLC and a member of the Bayer Group (NYSE: BAY), announced today the availability of the latest advances in their line of blood glucose meters: the new CONTOUR® and BREEZE®2 meters. As an innovator of meters with No Coding™ technology, Bayer's new meters now offer shorter testing times and easier functionality.
Unlike most meters that need to be manually coded to assure accurate results, CONTOUR and BREEZE2 continue the innovation of previous Bayer meters by automatically setting the correct code any time a Bayer test strip is inserted - so there is less chance for error and fewer steps.
With the new CONTOUR and BREEZE2 blood glucose meters, people with diabetes can now obtain accurate blood glucose test results in just five seconds. The new meters also offer improved test memory to support better diabetes management.
BREEZE2 requires a small blood sample (1µL) size and includes a 10-test disc system, allowing users to test 10 times without handling individual strips, and has received the Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation. The new CONTOUR offers automatic features including No Coding™ technology and hematocrit correction, a faster test time, small (0.6 µL) blood sample requirement, meal markers and test reminder alarm.
The new CONTOUR and BREEZE2 blood glucose meters are now available at pharmacies nationwide, or by calling Bayer's free Customer Service Help Line at 1-800-348-8100.
