The most helpful way to promote blood flow is by exercising before sample collection. Make sure you are also properly hydrated. If your first finger prick does not produce enough blood to fill all 5 circles on your blood spot card, we recommend trying your other hand. Your kit comes with an extra lancet that you can use if needed. To ensure your finger is pricked correctly, place your finger against a firm surface or have someone assist you.
Please note: If you've already returned your sample and all 5 circles on your blood spot card are not filled, the lab may not be able to process it. In that case, we’ll be in touch and are happy to send another complimentary test kit your way.
