Unistik® 3: Control at your fingertips
Unistik® 3 single-use safety lancets provide an easy and convenient way to take a blood sample. The activation button and alignment arrow on the side of the device, allows you to determine exactly when and where you activate the device. Once activated the needle retracts into the body of the device which reduces the risk of injury as the result of an exposed needle.
Unistik® 3 incorporates Comfort Zone Technology®, which simply means when you press the lancet against the skin, the eight raised dots on the end of the device sends a message of comfort to the brain, masking the pain sensation created by the needle2. This has been designed for a comfortable blood sampling experience.
The Unistik® 3 single-use safety lancets offer a choice of five different depth and gauge (needle thickness) options, allowing you to choose a device to meet your blood volume needs.
The Unistik 3 Neonatal safety lancet is a puncture blade device designed for comfortable neonatal heel sampling1.
