STORY SUMMARY: Health Canada has approved Bayer's CONTOUR(R) USB, the first and only blood glucose meter with built-in USB technology that can be plugged directly into a computer, allowing for instant access to blood glucose monitoring results.

People with diabetes can plug in and instantly access information about trends and patterns in their blood glucose levels with the integrated Glucofacts(R) DELUXE software. Bayer's CONTOUR USB is as simple to use as any standard blood glucose meter. The meter stores up to 2,000 test results, which patients can access on any computer, whether at home, at the doctor's office, or on the go with their laptop.
