What lancets do you or your child use?

Poll dates: August 27 - September 3, 2000
Total Votes: 854

Over the past several years, makers of lancets and lancing devices have made great strides in developing thinner lancets and adjustable lancing devices, all designed to make finger stick blood testing as easy and painless as possible. There are now lancing tools suitable for testing the tiny fingers of infants as well as the roughened skin of adults who work with their hands a lot.

We ran this poll one year ago and the results today are essentially the same as they were then. Here's a comparison chart:

Lancet August 2000 August 1999
BD Ultra Fine 47% 47%
Cleanlet 1% 1%
LifeScan 5% 4%
Monolet 3% 4%
Softclix 28% 27%
Soft Touch 7% 8%
Store Brand 2% 2%
Other or Don't Know 3% 3%
