SteriLance Lancet Device

Let’s look at how to use the SteriLance Lancing Device. Available on our website and included with new diabetes testing kits, this tool makes it simple to draw blood for traditional glucometer testing. We have a video for more visual learners, as well as step-by-step instructions with pictures.



Blood sampling from a finger

Wash the test site with soap and warm water, then dry completely. Prepare the test site with a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol prep pad. Before lancing, gently rub your arm from the wrist to the base of the finger. This will help to get better blood flow and allow a good blood drop to form. Select a site on the outer edge of the finger for the best blood drop and least bother. Do not squeeze or massage your finger after lancing.


  • Single Patient Use Only.
  • Do NOT share your lancing device with anyone, not even family members.
  • Sharing your lancing device may cause the spread of infections or diseases to YOU and other persons.
  • Not to be used for assisted blood draws by healthcare providers or at healthcare provision sites.
  • Use a NEW sterile lancet each time you test.
  • Clean your device after each use.
  • Do NOT use if the device and/or lancet appear damaged.
  • Do NOT use lancets that do not fit properly in the lancet holder.
  • Do NOT use a lancet, if after insertion into the device the needle is protruding through the end cap.
