What Are Safety Lancets?
Safety lancets are a fully enclosed, spring-loaded needle intended for one-time use, to obtain a finger stick by patients and professionals. Safety lancets help reduce the risk of a needle stick injury or skin infection. They are ultra-thin and sharp for precision penetration of your finger. The safety lancet has a mechanism which prevents reuse.
How to Use Safety Lancets:
Safety lancets are easy to use, precise and come in different variations. The “contact or pressure activation” is activated simply by pushing the lancet on the finger. The “push-button activation” safety lancet is activated simply by pressing the activation button on the side or top of the lancet. There is no pre-loading required with either safety lancet and the used needle retracts automatically for extra safety.
