Smallest lancing device available?

My pockets are getting more and more crowded as I gain more tools to take better care of myself. I am looking at my inventory and really the only comsumable that could get smaller is the lancing device. Right now I have the One Touch ..... regular tiny one?

And i also have one that came with the Abbott FreeStyle.

These are both the smallest devices I have had, but I bet I can do better. I believe the Delica is smaller than these. Does it need proprietary lancets or can you use generics? Any other devices to consider?

There is not a proprietary lancet that you have to use with a meter. I have about 4 or 5 from different manufacturers, and soon discovered the lancets are even interchangeable. I choose to use the one that I feel most comfortable using.

I have a Delicia lancer . I like it because it uses a smaller gauge needle and is less painful. But there is a trade off in that sometimes it doesn’t bring enough blood for testing causing extra finger sticks.

It uses a different type of needle than the average lancer but it is quite small. It is only half the side of other lancers and would fit nicely in a pocket.


The Bayer is pretty tiny and can use BD lancets.

Thanks guys. Yes, the question was regarding smallest device rather than needle gauge. The Walgreens one looks very promising, though I have no need for the meter. It looks like the package is $10 so worth a shot to lighten the load.


For small size and a good device I would go for the BD mircolet.

To close the loop here, I bought the Walgreen's True Test meter just for the lancing device (thanks Shawnmarie!). The whole thing was ten bucks, with a mail in rebate to make it free. Exactly what I was looking for. Smallest device out there by far, but performance is still fine.
