MediPurpose, a medical product manufacturer and master distributor, today announced that Health Canada has approved the company’s medical device license for SurgiLance™ Lite safety lancets. The approval permits MediPurpose to market SurgiLance Lite in Canada.
SurgiLance Lite safety lancets are 28-gauge fingerstick devices, introduced in the United States in 2015 as an expansion to MediPurpose’s flagship SurgiLance™ safety lancet portfolio.
Engineered to minimize pain when performing frequent low-volume blood collections—such as for glucose testing—SurgiLance Lite is available in three configurations, differentiated by their cartridge colors and penetration depths:
- SLL140 (yellow/1.4 mm)
- SLL180 (gray/1.8 mm)
- SLL220 (orange/2.2 mm)
As with the classic SurgiLance, SurgiLance Lite safety lancets are sterile, pre-armed and single-use medical devices that prevent accidental sharps injuries before and after activation.
