    According to the Owner's Guide the included lancet launching device "works with most generic lancets such as BD Ultra-Fine 33 Gauge Lancets".

  • I don't know why it wouldn't be, the lancet is just what you use to puncture the skin to obtain the blood for sample. You could poke with a regular needle as long as it is clean/sterile and you wash your hands. I do not believe it is compatable with other test strips or items used to get blood sugars without drawing blood (i.e. skin touch testers) although I am not positive to the accuracy of all the information and could be wrong.
