Top critical review
Awesome in theory, but inconsistent.
on June 16, 2016
I wish I could give these a five-star review, because they really are so much less painful than larger lancets, and when they work, they work great. Unfortunately, there are quality-control issues that frequently crop up: the needle is bent over out of the box (partly a problem with how the stylet cup is mounted), but even in cases where the cup is still straight and secure, the needle is often off-center, mounted in the plastic at an odd angle, and mounted at varying depths (sometimes, barely protruding from the plastic). It can be infuriating to go through three or four lancets just to take one reading, with tiny and inadequate blood spots to get a blood-glucose reading. I hope they improve their manufacturing processes soon; when they do, this will probably be a five-star review.
