Over the past several years, makers of lancets and lancing devices have made great strides in developing thinner lancets and adjustable lancing devices, all designed to make finger stick blood testing as easy and painless as possible. There are now lancing tools suitable for testing the tiny fingers of infants as well as the roughened skin of adults who work with their hands a lot.
