“They are gentle on the babies’ feet and provide excellent specimens. I love that once you stick the baby’s foot there is no loud click which in old products always startled the babies and made them jump and cry harder. These lancets make no sound and after the baby is stuck they act like there is minimal discomfort. They are easy to use and [less] the cost of previous products we have used for the last 16 years.
Very pleased, this a great product that meets all of our standards.” Leasha Christian, Mountain View Pediatrics
