Medisafe Finetouch Dispo is a disposable-type puncture needle, combined with a lancing device and needle for measuring blood glucose, via blood sampling from a fingertip. The needle’s thickness is very fine, at only 30G and is available in two lengths, 0.8 mm (pink) and 1.5 mm (blue). It is very easy to use in just three simple steps; remove the protective cap, utilize, and dispose. The unique lancet design makes it virtually painless at puncture and assures safe disposal with an unexposed needle. Also, the compact package design has been developed to reduce storage space and waste.
