FDA approves Bayer Diabetes Care's Contour USB blood glucose meter


TARRYTOWN, N.Y. Bayer Diabetes Care on Monday announced that the Food and Drug Administration approved the Contour USB blood glucose meter, a blood glucose monitor that plugs directly into a computer, providing users with access to information that can help optimize diabetes management.

"This is an ideal blood glucose monitor for patients who are highly engaged in managing their diabetes, particularly those on insulin who must test frequently," stated David Simmons, chief medical officer for Bayer Diabetes Care. "With the Contour USB meter, patients are able to review their results with their healthcare professional during an office visit, over the phone, or via e-mail, giving them the opportunity to make treatment adjustments, such as taking action to reduce their A1C levels, if necessary."

The Contour USB meter is integrated with Glucofacts Deluxe software.
