Lancet needle

Hello, I used the lancet needle in the kit but this will sound like a silly question, I used the lancet needle but I keep thinking that the lancet needle has been contaminated. I have gone ocd over this for that last year, its really silly but I don’t how to stop this thought in my head. So if someone had opened the kit and the pouch and decided to return it back to you do you re-stock the entire kit again if they have opened the foil pouch but its been unsused do you’s re’stock that item?

Hi HelloX. There is no risk of contamination of the needle as we do not restock any returned items. You would also be able to see if the foil pouch was opened or damaged before you use the test. There is no risk of contamination of the lancet as this has gone through intensive scrutiny and is one of the best and most used lancets in the world. I hope this puts your mind at rest, Francesca Bard, BioSure UK Ltd
