A Lancet in medical terms, refers to a surgical knife with a short, wide, pointed double-edged blade, used especially for making punctures and small incisions.
A Lancet Device is a medical device that holds the lancet firmly in place. When the user triggers the device, the lancet will move ahead in a linear way to prick against any skin or surface in a controlled manner.
Lancet device and lancet are typically used in blood glucose monitoring to draw out a small amount of blood sample from the patient for testing of glucose level. The blood sample will be dropped onto a test strip and inserted into a blood glucose meter for result.
How To Choose A Good Lancet Device :
Do not recycle a lancet. Always remember to insert a new one before you use the lancet device and dispose the lancet immediately after each use for safety purpose.
