    San Diego, CA, March 15, 2016ACON Laboratories, Inc. proudly announced today the launch of the OptiLance™ Push-Button Safety Lancets. The OptiLance™ push-button safety lancets are ergonomically designed to provide you with optimal safety and comfort while collecting a blood sample for testing. A simple one-click action activates the lancet and the use of the unique Gentle Grip provides the most comfortable blood sampling experience to the patient. The OptiLance safety lancets are manufactured in Sweden, using state of the art technology. The precision molded needles and quality springs prevent any needle chatter ensuring optimum comfort for the patient. The double-spring action coupled with the Gentle Grip help distract the patient away from the needle prick and reduce the pain. Diana Brulay, Vice President of International Sales, expressed her excitement about the launch of OptiLance, “The quality of these safety lancets makes me very excited to present them to my customers. As someone with diabetes, I can attest to how painless the OptiLance safety lancets are. I have used other safety lancets before and I always felt a lot of pain while pricking my fingers and sometimes it resulted in bruising as well. But with the OptiLance, I barely feel any pain and haven’t noticed any bruising.” OptiLance™ safety lancet is available in 3 different sizes:

    • 28G– ideal for 1-2 µL thin or normal skin blood glucose testing
    • 25G– ideal for 1-2 µL thick skin blood glucose testing, or 5-10 for normal skin POC testing
    • 21G– ideal for 30-40 µL for POC testing
