The ACCU-CHEK Safe-T-Pro Plus lancet minimizes inventory costs and uses a unique technology for ensuring patient comfort and staff safety.
Better patient care :
Retractable needle meets OSHA requirements which helps reduce accidental fingersticks and enhance infection control
Economic value :
The Clinical Challenge :
Using the wrong type of lancet can be a pain—for patients and your healthcare facilities. With different patient skin types, choosing the right depth of lancet is important to reduce the pain to the patient. And stocking multiple lancets may increase inventory costs and training requirements.
The Clinical Solution :
The ACCU-CHEK Safe-T-Pro Plus lancet offers three depth settings (1.3, 1.8, and 2.3mm) for various patient conditions, such as thin skin or calloused fingers, and also meets CLSI guidelines1. Simply select the depth that provides the greatest comfort—while at the patient’s bedside—and easily obtain an adequate blood sample for single dose tests.
The ACCU-CHEK Safe-T-Pro Plus lancet simplifies inventory management, which may reduce inventory costs—one lancet can be used on all patients. And training is minimal on this simple-to-use device.
The ACCU-CHEK Safe-T-Pro Plus lancet is designed to meet OSHA requirements mandating “safety-engineered” needle devices.2 The lancet automatically retracts after use to help prevent accidental fingersticks and enhance infection control. Engineered to help clinicians provide quality patient care, the single-use, multi-depth ACCU-CHEK Safe-T-Pro Plus lancet brings comfort and safety to patients and clinicians.
