Optilet Mini is a safe and comfortable pricker which is used for the collection of capillary blood samples in order to determine the level of glucose. Due to the adjustable tip the puncture depth can be adjusted to most of the kinds of skin. Before the puncture always wash your hands with soap and warm water and dry them thoroughly.
The appliance has 6 puncture depth settings (from 1 to 6), intended for various kinds of skin. The smaller values are intended for shallower punctures; however, the higher values are intended for deeper punctures. The shallower punctures are appropriate for children and most of adults. The deeper punctures are appropriate for persons with thicker or calloused skin. The puncture can be also made in the alternative sites (apart from a fingertip); a special adapter is used for this purpose.
FOR USE ONLY BY A SINGLE PATIENT.
This appliance may not be used for the collection of blood samples by healthcare personnel in care homes, clinics and healthcare centres, or shared with other persons, including family members.
DO NOT REUSE THE LANCET.
The reuse of the same needle by third persons is connected with the increased microbiological risk; the user may become infected inter alia by hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and HIV
In order to reduce the infection risk:
- Wash the puncture site with soap and water before the collection of blood sample.
- Keep the appliance clean. Cosmetic product, oils, contaminants, dust can cause its improper operation.
- Keep the appliance out of the reach of children. The pricker, adapter, lancets and pricker cover present the risk of suffocation.
- Use always a new, clean lancet. The lancets are for a single use.
