Unistik Touch is designed to make capillary sampling as simple and seamless as possible. With one-touch activation, you simply press the device against the sample site, allowing it to activate automatically under pressure. Once activated, the needle retracts into the body of the device, minimising the risk of re-use, cross-infection and injury.
Unistik Touch comes complete with Comfort Zone Technology™.
Comfort Zone Technology™ minimises the pain of finger sampling and gives you peace of mind. When pressed against the sample site, a series of eight raised dots on the platform stimulate the nerve endings. This send a powerful message of comfort to the brain, masking the weaker pain stimulus from the needle.1
