The Personal Lasette is a portable, battery-operated blood drawing device that enables diabetics to check their blood sugar levels at home without using a lancet. The device, approved by the FDA, draws a drop of blood by creating a tiny hole in the finger with little or no pain and no bruising. The patient then tests the blood in the usual manner. Able to be used by both juveniles and adults, the device can be obtained only after the patient has received a prescription and instruction on its use from his/her healthcare provider.
