The Neoheel safety lancet is used to collect quality blood samples from infants for metabolic screening as well as glucose and other tests. Automatic retraction is designed to avoid needlestick injuries and cross-contamination exposure. The safety lancet produces less bruising1 and requires less punctures to obtain sufficient volumes of blood2. In addition, the arc shaped design reduces the number of heel puncture sites, time taken to complete the test and time the baby cries. The integral safety tab prevents premature activation while avoiding additional loose parts. Neoheel™ is available in four configurations which are based on the baby’s development level (Micro-Preemie, Preemie, Newborn, Toddler).
