Pip Lancets Starter Kit
Includes Carry Case and 50 Lancets (30 of primary size selected + 10 each of other two sizes).
Pip Lancets provide a simpler way to test your blood-sugar. Each device is pre-loaded. Simply twist-off the cap and apply pressure. Device will activate gently against your fingertip to provide just the right amount of blood. No loading, unloading, depth setting or any other cumbersome aspects of traditional lancets and devices.
Needle is concealed before and after use. Using Pip eliminates the need to handle exposed needles which makes Pip the perfect choice for individuals with poor dexterity, children, or anyone that wants to eliminate the risk of being accidentally stuck by a needle.
With the Starter Kit - you can try all 3 sizes to ensure you find the perfect size to meet your needs.
These actually hurt. The only way that people say these are painless are if they have no problems with needles or have at least some type of pain tolerance because they do actually hurt. To be fair I have only tried the orange and purple and between the two I will say the purple definitely hurts more and produces way more blood than just "whats needed" to fill the test strip. What's weird is the orange is supposed to puncture deeper than the purple and it hurts less and produces less blood... how does that work? Anyhow the one good thing about this product is how convenient it is. I love not have to put needles in my lancet device and do all those extra steps. I love that these are small, compact, and ready to use in a flash and you don't have to carry around extra tools. I will have to try the blue and see how that works but judging by the other two I'm not really sure it's going to be much different. Would give one star rating but I'm giving two for the one pro about them because the conveniency is awesome.
I used the smallest needle out of the starter pack and it HURT. I was so looking forward to using needles that were gentler, but these are not it. I did like the convenience of having it all ready to go and not have to load my machine with the lancet. I won't be using anymore of them, such a waste!
They did cause less pain, was easy to use. Was very satisfied.
With Pip lancets, my experience is: quick, painless, less expensive than with traditional lancets. I will never use the traditional lancet process again.
I tried the trial pack. It was so convenient to be able to try each size. It really didn’t hurt.
