Quick change lancets

Although taking a tiny blood sample for self-monitoring should be as easy as possible for the diabetic patient, this has not been an easy task because changing a used lancet has proved a fiddly and often daunting job.

Now a blood testing kit named Accu-Chek Multiclix has been launched Roche Diagnostics, and this has an integrated, replaceable lancet drum that carries six lancets. After using one, the diabetic rotates the integrated drum, which moves a fresh lancet into position. In addition, there are eleven settings for the pricking depth, to suit individual skin types and make contact gentler.
Recommended retail price: 22.90 euros.
