A lancet injector is provided which has a tubular housing, a slidable lancet holder in the housing, a compression spring connected between the holder and one end of the housing, and a holder control member extending through a longitudinal slot in the sidewall of the housing. The control member is operable to move the lancet holder to a latched retracted position against the force of the spring, release the holder so that it moves linearly under the force of the spring and inertia to a skin piercing position and then back to a neutral position in which the spring is in a free length condition.
