Ametol Gel is a local anaesthetic that contains 4% w/w of tetracaine. The unique formulation works as an effective pain reliever and numbs the skin where applied.
As a safe local anaesthetic, Ametop Gel is perfect for Percutaneous local anaesthetic to produce anaesthesia of the skin prior to venipuncture or venous cannulation.
Pain is caused by the stimulation of your pain receptors at the nerve ends.
The numbing gel contains the active ingredient, Tetracaine. It works by temporarily blocking these pain signals by preventing sodium from entering the nerve ending. This stops an electrical signal going to the brain.
This makes Ametop an ideal numbing gel for giving a blood sample.

Ordered my ametop gel from here, the service was very easy & they arrived really quick! Thank you
Quick acting gel
brilliant cream works a treat you can't feel a thing
It numbs the area really well.
Ametop only takes up to 45 minutes to work before an injection or venous puncture. In my experience the majority of children who are successfully calmed and distracted during the procedure do not feel any pain or discomfort. It therefore numbs the area really well.
