PINNIX Light is the world’s first plant-based lancet, developed to be both human friendly and environment friendly. Modeled after a mosquito’s proboscis, it is designed to minimize pain, and comes in individual packages.
The incision is a straight line rather than gouged.
Conventional metal lancet
PINNIXR Light 0.4mm
Single-use, disposable structure
No needle exposure except during puncture
The needle is locked inside after use.
Since it is single-use and disposable, this prevents secondary infection.
- July 1993:Japan Society for Virology advocates “physical seal” as a bio-safety guideline
- October 2003:Sterilization becomes mandatory for vacuum blood collection tubes and other non-sterile products
(Up to that time, sterilization was not mandatory for products that were not inserted directly into the body.)
- 2006:ISO 11607 International Standard on “Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices” is published
Since the product’s development in 2002, PINNIX Light has ensured sterilization using sealed individual packages, similar to packaging used for injection needles and syringes.
In addition to being individually packaged,
PINNIX Light is also sealed in a plastic bag with a zip lock,
to ensure cleanliness, safety, and peace of mind with every use.
