A lancing apparatus includes an inner housing, a firing mechanism, a lancing mechanism and a linkage arm. The firing mechanism is configured for producing a firing force in a first direction. The lancing mechanism is configured for delivering a lancing force in a second direction with the second direction being toward a target site and in opposition to the first direction. The linkage arm is pivotably attached to the housing and has first and second ends engaged to the firing and lancing mechanisms, respectively. During use, pivoting of the linkage arm converts the firing force in the first direction into the lancing force in the opposing second direction.
