A Virtually Pain-Free Blood Sample
Designed with the Patient and Healthcare Professional in mind
Unistik® 3 safety lancets are designed to maximize patient comfort, while offering a consistent level of safety for the Healthcare Professional. From low flow glucose to high flow PT/INR testing, Unistik® 3 offers a broad range of sizes to meet every capillary testing need.
Comfort Zone Technology®
Independent clinical data shows that Unistik® 3 safety lancets with Comfort Zone Technology® (CZT) reduce pain, resulting in a more comfortable experience for the Patient.
CZT 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 eliminate the pain associated with the fingerstick.
Maximum Pain Score Comparison Unistik® 3 With and Without CZT
* Dewland P, Edwards C. A single-blind, randomised, 8-way crossover study to compare the blood volume and pain perception of capillary blood sampling – March 2007.
Lancet trials showed that CZT reduced the overall pain experienced during the blood sampling procedures when compared to devices without CZT.
Unlike contact-activated lancets, which can cause painful pressure at the sample site, Unistik® 3 safety lancets feature side-activation, designed to ensure even greater comfort during sampling. No additional pressure required.
