Unistik® 3 Extra

Unistik®3 Extra

  • 21 Gauge lancet
  • 2.0mm depth penetration
  • Suggested for cholesterol, Haemoglobin (Hgb). This device is often used for diagnostic kit tests such as cardiac enzymes

Used to obtain blood samples for testing, Unistik® 3 are single-use, sterile safety lancets. The range offers a choice of different depth and gauge specifications for use across different environments and blood sampling requirements. Developed to provide a comfortable blood sampling experience, they provide an easy and convenient way to perform capillary blood sampling for:

  • Healthcare professionals in a multi-patient setting (compliant to EU Sharps Regulations), or
  • Patients in their own homes, or whilst travelling

Benefits:

  • Control: Via an activation button and alignment guide
  • Comfort: Patented Comfort Zone Technology® maximises comfort for the patient during the sampling procedure¹
  • Safety: The needle retracts immediately after use to reduce the risk of needlestick injuries, and a lock out indicator prevents reuse

Lancets are measured by gauge (thickness). The lower the gauge, the larger the perforation the lancet makes, e.g, a 21-gauge lancet will make a larger puncture hole in your skin than a 28-gauge lancet will. The principle of gauge measures applies to standard lancets, single use safety lancets and pen needles. Penetration depth also varies across different device ranges.

A simple one-click action activates the lancet and allows the user to choose exactly when the lancet will activate. A standard feature for this range includes a clear alignment guide which means the lancet can be accurately positioned before being activated, keeping users in control of the sampling experience.

Independent clinical data¹ shows that the patented Comfort Zone Technology® reduces pain, resulting in a more comfortable experience for the patient². Comfort Zone Technology® is comprised of eight raised pressure points on the patient end of the safety lancet. This patented technology sends a signal of comfort to the brain, helping to reduce the pain associated with the sampling.
