The BD Microtainer® Contact-Activated Lancet is just one example of our commitment to healthcare worker safety and satisfaction. Designed to provide the optimum safety and comfort for both clinicians and patients.

Since it activates only when it is positioned and pressed against the skin, it provides clinicians with a consistent puncture depth and an easy-to-use product design.

It has been clinically demonstrated to minimize patient discomfort and maximize blood flow.*
