Default I officially a convert - Accu Chek Multiclix is the best lancet device in the world

I have tried several lancet devices now, even ones with needles as small and hands down the multiclix is the best, Once the depth is set, I get blood everytime with no pain

The little cartridge is pretty cool as well.

It cocks easily with one hand, is great for changing needles and doesnt hurt, what more can you ask

The only down side is that it could be a little smaller

Anyone have competition for it out there?

Don

I do have the multiclix... although it doesn't seem to work very well for me. I can load it and sit there trying to release it and it just doesn't release and then it finely release when I'm not expecting it. The lancets for it aren't cheap either. I've put it aside for now due to my lack of patience and I'm just using my trusty old one that I know that with one click of a button it will release for me. It could just be that I've got a faulty multiclix? But I agree it is kinder when it does work than my usual device.

I think the onetouch Delica is better if you have to test a lot.

I got the delica recently and thought it was worlds better than my old one touch lancet, but it still hurt me and i often had trouble getting blood even at the deepest setting.

Funny. Different strokes for different folks

On the less than generous side I have a couple of boxes of lancets for the old style One touch lancing device if anyone wants them - Free

Good everybody. I'm still here. Just got a little busy lately. The meter I use is a OneTouch UltraSmart meter. So far it has worked well for me. I have and have tried the Accu-Chek Compact Plus the only problem I had was it would eject the test strip from the drum before I was ready to use it. I bought a Pelican case for it so the buttons would not accidentally pressed.

I'm still using the lancing device that came with my original OneTouch meter, and will cry great big tears if it ever bites the dust. I'm also still working down the lancet supply that I got with my original prescription of stuff - 3 1/2 years ago!

I love the multiclix too, though it's the only device I've had.

I'm needle-phobic, and when the diabetes educator handed it to me I was almost afraid to touch it. She felt - accurately - it was best for me to use one that didn't involve getting up-close 'n personal with the needles. When I put a new pack of lances in, I couldn't bring myself to push it into the device as if all 6 needles would release at once, stabbing me to death.

I've come a long way.

lol... glad to hear you've gotten over the needle phobia. Being diabetic we have no choice... needles and blood all the time. The thought of injecting at first got to me.... but got over that very quick. Now I'm just annoyed that I manage to bruise myself with injecting. I wish my multiclix would work properly... I'd use it... but I'm sticking with the old one for now from my original meter too.

Heh - I wouldn't exactly say that I still hyperventilate when they come at me for a blood draw - it's the only time I've ever fainted and I've done that a few times.

I have dry macular degeneration, and if genetics plays out it will definitely turn wet. You know what they do when that happens? Give an injection in the eye - monthly! It's terrifying. There's something very cruel going on cosmically that I got all these needle-involved conditions! I must've tortured people with needles in a past life ...

ewwww.... a needle in the eye is not something I'd want to experience either. But lancing of the fingers and injecting certainly leaves scars behind.... I've got calusses on my fingers and bruises and bumps on my stomach.
