Gainor Medical has introduced its Carelet self-contained single-use safety lancets designed for capillary blood sampling. The lancets feature an automatic activation/retraction mechanism which exposes the needle or blade only for the split second that it takes to enter the skin. After use, the needle or blade is encased in a plastic cover to ensure it can not be used again. The McDonough, Georgia-based company's lancets are available in four styles including three blade lengths and a needle style used primarily for blood glucose testing in hospitals.
