Unistik 3 puts the sampling experience firmly in your hands, with side-fire activation enabling you to decide exactly when to activate the device and how much pressure to apply. The alignment guide indicates precisely where the device will activate on the patient’s finger.
Unistik® 3 comes complete with Comfort Zone Technology™ minimizes 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 needle¹.
