About babyLance Infant Heel Incision Devices
Originally introduced in July 2011, MediPurpose launched its all-new babyLance in August 2012.
The fully redesigned iteration of its original safe, easy and effective heelstick device was specifically designed to meet end-user requirements for an infant heel incision device that was easy to activate.
Used by neonatal caregivers to collect blood samples from infants, the new babyLance features an ergonomic design to provide a secure and stable grip.
Combined with a redesigned trigger mechanism, the heelstick device is easy to activate, helping to deliver a consistent incision without damaging the baby's tender nerve fibers.
babyLance heelstick devices are available in two models:
* The babyLance BLP (Preemie), which delivers an incision depth of 0.85 mm.
* The babyLance BLN (Newborn), which delivers an incision depth of 1.00 mm.
