Neonatal Capillary Sampling
Neonatal capillary sampling has its own unique challenges. Obtaining an adequate sample volume with a single incision, maintaining absolute sterility and minimising discomfort for the baby are top priorities.
Unistik® Heelstik is a heel incision device designed specifically to meet these challenges. A clearly visible alignment arrow allows healthcare professionals to position the lancet with precision. Manual activation enables healthcare professionals to discharge the device with confidence, for the first time. The blister pack keeps the blade sterile after irradiation until the pack is opened.
