V worried



Sterile lancet in pack

I’m panicking as I can’t remember if my lancet was in the box or in the foil pouch and if therefore it was sterile?? The foil pouch was intact and had the correct date/ CE mark on.

I’m really worried but am I being paranoid?

Thank you!

Hi V Worried. The lancets are always in the foil pouch with the test and plaster, so there is no need to be worried. I know this is very stressful but knowing your status is an extremely important thing and you have taken control and done it on your terms. I hope this helps, Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) LTD
