Apollo Pressure-Activated Safety Lancets 1.8mm/28 Gauge (100)
Lancets are used to obtain a blood sample in order to test blood glucose levels. They can be used in conjunction with an appropriate device or may be designed for single use with the lancing mechanism being disposed of along with the lancet after use.
Apollo Pressure-Activated Safety Lancets are specially designed for capillary blood sampling. The needle tip of each lancet is capped within medical rubber to maintain full sterilisation and is fully shielded before and after use to prevent needle-stick injuries. It cannot be re-capped after use, giving a clear indication that it has been used and requires disposing in a sharps container. Apollo Pressure-Activated Safety Lancets feature an auto polished, smooth tri-bevelled needle point that ensures precision and reduces the force required to penetrate the skin. Along with the patented, pressure activated linear needle track that prevents needle vibrations and ensures high speed penetration, this enables maximum patient comfort. Apollo Pressure-Activated Safety Lancets 26G are yellow, have a depth of 1.8mm and are designed for low flow 10-20ul glucose tests.
