Lancets are one of the widely used alternative devices to obtain blood samples. Lancets are receiving global recognition and acceptance due to its several convenient characteristics which gives them an edge over the traditional methods for vein puncture. Some of the important features of the safety lancets are painless vein puncture, easy handling, and safety while using. The major applications of the safety lancets are capillary blood micro sampling, cholesterol test, hemoglobin (HBO) and HIV screening test, blood group test, coagulation tests, allergy tests, and many other blood-based tests.
Safety lancets were introduced in 1994 by Medlance with an initiation button and T-shape cover it. They were used to avoid needle-stick injuries and infections caused by them. In the U.S. alone in 2014, around 2.2 million people had chronic hepatitis B virus infection. (CDC, Viral Hepatitis – Hepatitis B Information, 2016). To reduce the prevalence of such blood-borne infections, safety lancets are very helpful. Safety lancets can be further classified by their structural specifications such as push-button safety lancets, pressure activated safety lancets, and side button safety lancets.
