Title
(EN) Single-use skin pricking device
Abstract
(EN)

A single-use skin pricking device (7) comprising a housing (8), a lancet (1) disposed (5) within the housing (8), biasing means (11) coupled between the housing (8) and the lancet (1), and a trigger (12) mounted to the housing (8) for relative movement therewith. The trigger (8) is releasably coupled to the lancet (1) such that movement of the trigger (8) in a first direction moves the lancet (1) in a direction to compress the biasing means (11), and then causes release of the lancet (1) from (10) the trigger (8) whereby the biasing means (11) drives the lancet (1) in a second direction substantially opposite to said first direction.
