Accu-Chek Softclix Lancets are designed to provide a virtually pain-free and accurate experience. Softclix lancets are 28 gauge and considerably smaller than most medical lancets. However, this makes them easy to use for all ages. With Accu-Chek Softclix lancets, anyone can easily and comfortably perform a blood glucose test.
As opposed to the standard round shaft lancets, Softclix lancets are designed with a rectangular cross-section to provide a smoother entry. They are lightweight and durable, suitable for all ages. They are designed for use with the Accu-Chek Softclix Lancing Device. The Accu-Chek Softclix lancing device has 11 customizable depth settings to match your needs.
