“All our collection teams have used the Haemolance+ Safety lancets since Aug 2012 to support Haemoglobin testing for approx 1.8 million donations per annum. Our staff have found them very easy to use, and our donors have commented frequently on their relative “comfort” of use – a great improvement on our previous device.”
– Blood Donation Directorate, NHS Blood and Transplant
“We have used these lancets on the ward since their introduction in to the trust (I assume therefore since 2009).
“I have spoken to a number of staff on the ward who use them regularly. They are all happy with the lancets and had no comments other that they are easy to use. There are no safety issues.”
– Jill, Great Ormond Street Hospital
“Hart Biologicals has been using the Haemolance+ Safety Lancets since 2009 in conjunction with one of the largest primary healthcare services in Scotland based in Glasgow.
“This project is set now to continue for the next 5 – 8 years, and we will continue to use the Haemolance+ Safety lancets.
“We have found the lancets easy to use with no performance or safety issues to date, we would have no problem recommending this product to potential users.”
– Hart Biologicals
“We are the premier suppliers of accredited phlebotomy, cannulation, and capillary blood collection training in the UK.
“We first came across Haemolance+ in a private capacity whilst in use by the Blood service and one of our directors – Andrew Purkiss was so impressed with the product that he took details of it and made contact with the suppliers – Prospect Diagnostics Ltd.
“That was in December 2012 and since then we have used Haemolance+ in all of our training and recommended it to all of our clients, as it is in our opinion the best capillary blood sampling device available.
“It appears to have the lowest failure (misfire) rate of any of the products that we have come across so far, it is easy to use, and so far as we can see, virtually impossible to obtain a needle stick from.”
