Kit Sterilization

Hi,my apologies for asking you these questions but I am suffering from some OCD.

May I know if all pieces inside the pouch are machine packed ?

Are they all sterilised before sealing especially the lancet?

Many thanks indeed.

Hi noworries, The components within the pouch e.g. test device, lancet plaster etc. are packed by a machine and are sealed before the packing process begins here at our production area. The lancet is sterilised using radiation but the pouch itself is not sterilised. This sterilisation process has been highly validated and the lancets do not constitute any risk of infection. The lancets that we use are also single use so there is no risk of infection or transmission. Kindest regards, Becky, BioSURE Ltd.
