Vitamin D3 Test Kit - Blood Spot Collection Instructions:

BLOOD SPOT Collection Times:

Collect your sample in the morning within 30 minutes of waking and before eating or drinking anything (except water).

1. Tape the filter card flat (below waist level) with flap hanging down and away from the collection filter strip (note: back of flap should not be touching blood filter collection strip).

2. Open the alcohol prep pad and sterile gauze and place them next to the taped filter card.

3. Select finger to draw blood from (middle or ring finger of non dominant hand is best).

4. Wipe finger with alcohol prep pad & allow drying for 15-30 seconds.

5. Pick up lancet, twist off cap, and press small white section firmly against the side of finger tip until lancet clicks.

6. Quickly wipe away the first blood drop with the sterile gauze pad.

7. Position nicked finger over circle of blood spot card and gently (don't squeeze) milk blood from the finger.

8. As blood drop forms and is ready to fall, touch it to the center of the circle (one drop per circle); continue collection until all circles have been filled.

9. When finished, blot with gauze then apply bandage to finger.

10. Leave blood spot card open to dry - minimum 30 minutes.

11. Once blood sample is dry, close flap and place in the plastic box.

TIPS:

Collect so that your hand is below your waist, allowing gravity to assist with blood flow.

To encourage blood flow before nicking finger, rub hands together/ swing arm and/or run hand under warm water.
