Genteel’s Parts Explained

Welcome to a brand new approach for lancing devices. Genteel’s unique technology cannot be found elsewhere and is covered by 40+ US and international patents. We have completely reinvented the industry standard spring-loaded devices that hurt. Genteel controls the depth of penetration and when combined with vacuum gets a reliable drop of test blood without pain.

Genteel’s Parts Explained

Welcome to a brand new approach for lancing devices. Genteel’s unique technology cannot be found elsewhere and is covered by 40+ US and international patents. We have completely reinvented the industry standard spring-loaded devices that hurt. Genteel controls the depth of penetration and when combined with vacuum gets a reliable drop of test blood without pain.

1

Contact Tips

Contact Tips control the depth of lancet penetration. Depth is controlled by 6 different colors, Blue, the shallowest, through Violet, the deepest.

2

Nozzles

Nozzles hold Contact Tips securely in position and provide a clear view of the drop of test blood being formed inside.

3

Lancet Holder

Genteel works best with our MediSure lancets, but can also use a wide-variety of square-based lancets, their gauge is irrelevant.

4

Activation Button

The Activation Button when pushed and covered with your finger engages the vacuum. The longer the button is pressed, the more blood will be drawn to the surface

5

Vacuum Tube

The magic of Genteel occurs because of the Vacuum Tube. Genteel creates a vacuum which pulls blood up from the lancet puncture. Because of its Contact Tips, the lancet only goes in as far as is needed to let the vacuum extract blood.

6

Piston Assembly

The Piston Assembly is a combination of the Push Shaft, Push Cap, and red Vacuum Indicator. It is used to prime and help indicate if the vacuum is still active.
