No. The lancing device is designed and engineered for one-time use.

With children younger than 1 year of age, the capillary blood must be obtained from the heel. Obtaining blood must occur from the lateral areas of the sole.

The puncture must occur vertically to the sole. While obtaining blood, the child should be held with its foot vertically facing the floor. A site which has already been punctured must not be punctured a second time.

To improve blood flow at the heel before obtaining blood, you can carefully warm the heel, for example by wrapping it in a warm, moist cloth of a maximum 42 °C.

The heel must be disinfected and then dried completely.

To obtain capillary blood from the heel of children under 1 year, use only the low or medium penetration depth. If the high penetration depth is used, the calcaneus (heel bone) is at risk of being injured.

The device should be disposed in accordance with you facility’s disposable procedures.

The lancet (= needle surrounded by the sterility cap) of the Accu-Chek Safe-T-Pro Plus lancing device is sterilised in a process called gamma irradiation which meets the international standards.

If stored properly, the lancing device remains functional for 4 years after sterilisation.

Different depth settings are required to accommodate different patients’ skin types. You do not require different single-use lancing devices with different penetration depths. This will save you time, costs and the need to stock a variety of lancing devices.

Choose the low setting for soft, thin and delicate skin or use on average skin to obtain a smaller drop of blood. Choose the medium setting for normal skin or if a medium blood volume is required. Choose the high setting for calloused skin, to obtain a blood sample without pressing and squeezing, if a high blood sample is required or for multi-test situations.
