As well as giving you simplicity, it also makes the testing procedure easier and less painful. The new, fully adjustable, MICROLET® 2 lancing device gives you added control when you’re taking a blood sample.
You can obtain them on prescription from your GP and dispensed by your local pharmacy. Prescription code is: 85055.
I thought they used to be called Ascensia MICROLETS?
In January 2009, Ascensia MICROLET® lancets were renamed MICROLET® lancets. Only the names changed: the prescribing codes will stay the same.
Use a new MICROLET® lancet each time you test. Do not reuse lancets.
Always dispose of the used lancet properly to prevent injury or contamination to others.
The MICROLET® 2 lancing device is designed for self testing by a single patient. It must not be used on more than one person due to the risk of infection. You should use a new MICROLET® lancet each time you test because it is no longer sterile after use.
Register your meter online and you will be able to order free of charge record diaries and batteries, along with a range of custom stickers to help customise your meter.
