How many times can I use a lancet?

Updated 6 hours ago by Michelle Pool

We get this question a lot. And we have a simple answer: We highly recommend only using each lancet a single time because it is safer and less painful.

A lancet is only sterile for the first use. Every time you use the lancet, it gets a little bit duller. And, a dirty lancet could contaminate your test results. That's no fun.

Fortunately, lancets are easy to find and very affordable. Click here for more information on where to buy more lancets.
