The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Ascensia Diabetes Care
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of an investigational blood glucose meter with the Contour sensor strip. It was decided that this investigational monitoring system would not be part of a regulatory submission and it will not proceed to marketed product.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Numbers of Fingerstick Blood Glucose (BG) Results Within +/- 5 to 15mg/dL (<75 mg/dL) or Within +/- 5% to 20% (>=75 mg/dL) of Laboratory Glucose Method [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
    Subjects with diabetes tested subject fingerstick blood using an investigational blood glucose meter (BGM). BGM results were compared to a reference lab glucose method - Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) Analyzer. BG results were used to calculate the number of BG results within +/- 5 to 15 mg/dL (for reference BG results <75mg/dL) or +/- 5 to 20% (for reference BG results >=75mg/dL) of the reference method results.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Numbers of Palm Blood Glucose (BG) Results Within +/- 5 to 15 mg/dL (<75 mg/dL) or Within +/- 5% to 20% (>=75 mg/dL) of Laboratory Glucose Method [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
    Subjects with diabetes used an investigational blood glucose meter (BGM) with subject capillary blood obtained from the palm. BGM results were compared to a reference lab glucose method - Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) Analyzer. BG results were used to calculate the number of BG results within +/- 5 to 15 mg/dL (for reference BG results <75mg/dL) or +/- 5% to 20% (for reference BG results >=75mg/dL) of the reference method results.

  • Number of Subjects Rated as<=3 Performing Basic Meter Tasks (Labeling Comprehension) [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
    Subjects reviewed the instructions for use (User Guide and Quick Reference Guide) to learn to use the system. Study staff then observed and rated the subjects(1 to 4) on their success at performing the tasks. Scale: 1.Success in performing tasks correctly without assistance. 2.Successful with additional review of User Guide. 3.Successful with additional review and study staff assist similar to review of a specific function during a Customer Service call. 4.Subject did not perform task correctly and study staff intervention was required.

  • Numbers of Forearm Blood Glucose (BG) Results Within +/- 5 to 15 mg/dL (<75 mg/dL) or Within +/- 5% to 20% (>=75 mg/dL) of Laboratory Glucose Method [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
    Subjects with diabetes used an investigational blood glucose meter (BGM) with subject capillary blood obtained from the forearm. BGM results were compared to a reference lab glucose method - Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) Analyzer. BG results were used to calculate the number of BG results within +/- 5 to 15 mg/dL (for reference BG results <75mg/dL) or +/- 5% to 20% (for reference BG results >=75mg/dL) of the reference method results.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intended Users of the System
Untrained subjects with diabetes obtained capillary fingerstick, palm, and forearm blood and performed Blood Glucose (BG) tests using a Ninja 2 investigational blood glucose meter and the Contour® sensor. This BG monitoring system will not proceed to marketed product.
Device: Ninja 2 Investigational Blood Glucose Meter
Untrained subjects with diabetes performed Blood Glucose(BG) tests from the subject's capillary blood obtained from fingerstick, palm, and forearm using the Ninja 2 investigational meter. All BG results were compared to a reference laboratory glucose method. Subjects' success at performing basic tasks using only the User Guide were rated by study staff.
