Special cut of the lancet- Each Accu-Chek lancet has a tapered 3-sided cut with optimized angles - the result of exhaustive research. This special cut of the lancet and its smooth, polished surface mean that skin penetration is virtually friction-free and especially gentle.
Fast penetration speed- The Accu-Chek lancet takes no more than about 2 milliseconds to penetrate the skin. This noticeably reduces the pain sensation because the shorter the penetration time, the fewer nerve fibres are irritated.
Individual penetration depth settings- All Accu-Chek lancing devices feature variable penetration depths to suit individual skin types. The lancet can thus be set to penetrate only as deep as necessary. This stimulates fewer nerve fibres and minimizes tissue damage - making blood sampling gentle and easier on the skin.
Lancet changing is hygienic and simple- As Accu-Chek Softclix Lancets penetrate the skin, hygiene is very important. New, unused Accu-Chek Softclix lancets are guaranteed to be sterile. They may be used in all Accu-Chek lancing devices and then discarded without the need to touch them.
