- Release of new lancet device 'naturalet petit' for micro blood sampling -

ARKRAY, Inc. shall release a single-use automatic lancet naturalet petit on 30 March (Wed), 2016. It is a lancet device for micro blood sampling and features a single-use design by employing an integrated needle and body. This ensures that the product can be used safely by all diabetes patients and medical practitioners. Furthermore, the product has been designed with 'ease of use' in mind, incorporating simple operation and reducing the amount of pain felt when puncturing the skin.

The new product naturalet petit which ARKRAY, Inc. (hereafter, 'ARKRAY') shall release is a lancet device used for the collection of micro blood samples to test the blood glucose value for diabetes.

With an integrated needle and body, the product is designed with safety in mind as the needle is restricted from being exposed at all times until the time of puncturing. Furthermore, by employing a round shape for the tip of the lancet device, it is easy to puncture the sampling site, allowing even elderly patients to use the device easily.

ARKRAY shall continue to provide products that respond to the widely varying needs of diabetes patients and medical practitioners, and support the front lines of diabetes treatment.
