Single-use devices feature a surgical blade that produces a uniform incision, rather than a puncture, thereby improving the reproducibility of test results. The standardized incision depth avoids deep cuts and assures an incision superficial to pain fibers. The clean, surgical incision minimizes skin trauma and scarring. The blade permanently retracts after the device is triggered, reducing risk of injury from an exposed, contaminated blade. Each device is individually wrapped. Sterile.
