Ascensia name changes

Bayer Diabetes Care has made a name change to the test strip and lancets used with the Contour blood glucose meter.

The Ascensia Microfill test strips have been renamed Contour test strips. The Ascensia Microlet lancets have been renamed Microlet lancets.

In 2009, the old brand can be dispensed against the new brand and vice versa.
