You can transfer test results from the CONTOUR®TS meter to a computer, where they can be summarized in a report with graphs and tables. To make use of this feature, you need GLUCOFACTS®DELUXE diabetes management software and a USB data cable from Bayer. The cable is not commercially available but can be requested from Bayer Customer Service. For more information call Bayer Diabetes Support on 0845 600 6030.

When you plug the meter in and press the "M" button, the device will send an ENQ (ASCII code 5) to signal that's it's listening.
You reply with an ACK (ASCII code 6), saying "send me the next record."
The device will send you a record. To signal you received it and want the next one, send another ACK.
Repeat until you've exhausted all the records.
The first record you get will be a header of sorts. The next 2 are misc information. Everything after that are glucose measurement records (or control solution).
You can check this out easily using a serial terminal like cutecom:
sudo apt-get install cutecom
Open /dev/ttyUSB0, set the input mode to hex, and just keep sending "6".
Once you've seen what the record format looks like, script to your liking in your favorite language.
I stopped reading after that, looks like most of what you need to know is there.
