Designed for neonatal nurses...with neonatal nurses! babyLance™ safety heelsticks have earned worldwide popularity for their smooth and accurate incisions, ease of use and safety.
babyLance’s proprietary internal spring activates its blade’s swift pendulum action—delivering an ultra smooth incision that complies with CLSI LA4-A5 guidelines to reduce trauma to an infant’s delicate subcutaneous tissues.
The gently arcing incision (white dotted line) is measured by the length (green horizontal line) and the maximum depth (blue vertical line).
Single-use and auto-retraction design practically eliminates cross-contamination and accidental needle stick injuries—before or after use.
Featuring the industry’s most effortless activation trigger, babyLance’s unique housing provides visual guides for accuracy and dimples for a secure grip.
