Lancet - Tenderfoot®
ITC Tenderfoot Heel Lancet 1.0mm Depth
The Tenderfoot® device is a safe, effective method for obtaining blood samples from the heels of infants.
The result is a high-quality blood sample with significantly less pain and trauma.
The tenderfoot produces a consistant incision that is controlled to a depth just above the nerve fibers.
The patented device performs a gentle, sweeping arc incision above the level of sensitive nerve fibers. The blade permanently retracts back into the device, eliminating any chance of an accidental stick and creates a high-quality incision resulting in a sample free of tissue contamination. The devices are safe, easy to use, and virtually pain free with less bruising as compared with traditional lancet devices.
