1. To remove the endcap, hold the device with your thumb on the grip indent and hold the endcap dial in the other hand. Snap the endcap off from top to bottom. 2. Loosen the round protective cap on a lancet by rotating it ¼ turn, but do not remove it. 3. Insert the lancet firmly into the lancing device until it comes to a full stop. 4. Twist off the round protective lancet cap. Save it for disposing of the used lancet. 5. Replace the solid color endcap. NOTE: Your Contour® USB meter codes itself every time you insert a test strip, so you do not have to worry about getting inaccurate results due to miscoding or forgetting to code your meter. 6. Remove a test strip from the bottle. Tightly close the bottle lid immediately after you have removed the test strip. 7. Hold the test strip with the gray end facing up. 8. Insert the gray end into the test strip port on the meter. After the meter turns on, a solid gray screen with a white border will appear for one second to show that the screen is working properly. The Contour USB logo screen will briefly appear before the Apply Blood screen. The meter is now ready to test a blood drop. Getting the Blood Drop: For fingertip testing: Use the gray endcap. 1. Rotate the endcap dial to adjust the puncture depth. The amount of pressure applied to the puncture site also affects puncture depth. 2. Press the endcap firmly against the puncture site and press the blue release button with the Bayer logo. 3. Stroke your hand and finger towards the puncture site to form a drop of blood. Do not squeeze around the puncture site. 4. Test immediately after you have formed a small, round blood drop (0.6 µL). Collecting Your Blood Drop: 1. Immediately touch the tip of the test strip to the drop of blood. The blood is drawn into the test strip tip. 2. Hold the tip of the test strip in the blood drop until the meter beeps. Do not press the tip against the skin or place the blood on top of the test strip. Testing with AutoLog On: Before your test result is displayed, the AutoLog screen appears. Select Before Meal, After Meal or No Mark by pressing the button next to it. Your test result will not display until you make a selection. However, if your result is a low blood sugar result or high blood sugar result, you will always see your result in 5 seconds. Your meter features a 5 second test time. If you make your selection in less than 5 seconds, you will see the remainder of the testing countdown. Your test result is displayed in large numbers for 2 seconds before changing to the normal test result screen.

Always keep the test strips in the original bottle. Tightly close the bottle immediately after removing a test strip. The bottle is designed to keep the test strips dry. Exposure to room humidity from leaving the bottle open or not storing them in the original bottle can damage your test strips. Do not drop blood directly on the fl at surface of the test strip. Your test strip is designed to easily "sip" the blood into the sample tip. Do not press the test strip against your finger. This may block the sample tip. Test strips are for single use only. Do not use a test strip that appears damaged or has been used. Let the meter and test strips adjust to the temperature of the location where you are testing. Allow 20 minutes for the meter to adjust to the temperature of that new location before performing a blood glucose test. The products have been designed to give accurate results at temperatures between 41°F and 113°F. Please be aware that USB ports in some computers and self-powered USB hubs can become much warmer than the room. A USB cable has been provided for your convenience. If you wish to test immediately after disconnecting from your computer, please use the USB cable. Check the expiration dates on your test strips and control solution. Potential Biohazard: The Microlet® 2 lancing device is designed for self testing by a single patient. It must not be used on more than one person due to the risk of infection. Use a new Microlet® lancet each time you test because it is no longer sterile after use. Always dispose of test strip and lancet properly. All products that come in contact with human blood should be handled as if capable of transmitting viral diseases.
