I just stumbled across some information and thought I'd check with you folks.  What procedure do you follow when using a lancet to acquire a capillary blood sample?  Do you have single use disposable devices or do you have the reloadable pen style?

We use a one time disposable type. Don't know the brand off the top of my head. Orange plastic with a white plunger, Snap it punctures and safes the needle.

If I remember the price was $25.00 ish for 250 in a box. Get them from boundtree catalog.

Every place I've ever worked has used the single use, spring loaded lancets.
