babyLance™ safety heelsticks designed by neonatal nurses for neonatal nurses!
These heelsticks have earned worldwide popularity for their smooth and accurate incisions, ease of use, and safety.
babyLance Safety Heelsticks – Ease of Use
Featuring an easy-to-activate trigger, babyLance’s unique housing provides visual guides for accuracy and dimples for a secure grip.
“They are gentle on the babies feet, and provide excellent specimens. I love that once you stick the babies foot there is no loud click which in old products always startled the babies and made them jump and cry harder. These lancets make no sound and after the baby is stuck they act like there is minimal discomfort. They are easy to use and [less] the cost of previous products we have used for the last 16 years.
Very pleased, this a great product that meets all of our standards.”

Ultra-Smooth Incisions Minimize Trauma
babyLance’s proprietary internal spring activates its blade’s swift pendulum action—delivering an ultra smooth incision that complies with CLSI NBS01-A6 guidelines to reduce trauma to an infant’s delicate subcutaneous tissues.
The gently arcing incision (white dotted line) is measured by the length (green horizontal line) and the maximum depth (blue vertical line).
Single-use safety heelsticks and auto-retraction design practically eliminates cross-contamination and accidental needle stick injuries—before or after use.
