The GentleSharp® System

>Products> The GentleSharp System

Allows greater sampling success while minimizing distress in pre-clinical studies.

Human and animal tissues range from relatively soft skin to tougher muscle to hard bones. Diagnostic and medication delivery devices such as needles and lancets each require different forces to penetrate or access each of these tissues. Actuated Medical technology vibrates the sharp at an ideal frequency with sophisticated monitoring and closed–loop control. The GentleSharp Device is designed for pre-clinical veterinary and laboratory applications.

Increase Success Rates

The GentleSharp Device increases the average success rate for serial blood collection. With the device ON during needle insertion (orange bar), there was significantly higher success rate compared to the group punctured with the device OFF (gray bar).

Key Benefits

  • Greater sampling success.
  • Greater blood volume.
  • Decreased needle insertions.
  • Lower and less variability of stress hormone level.
