How to use allergy self test
How to conduct this allergy test
This is simple and causes little discomfort. Only a small drop of blood is required. DO NOT use the finger pricker if its blue tab (marked ) is missing.
The test kit should be stored and used at normal room temperature. If it has been stored at a much lower temperature then leave the test kit unopened at room temperature for a minimum of 2 hours. The test unit should be used within 30 minutes of opening the foil pouch.
Wash your hands with soap and warm water; rinse well with warm water; dry with a clean towel - it is important that your hands are warm and dry as this improves the blood flow and makes it easier to collect the blood sample.
Find a quiet place to perform the test, preferably sitting down in front of a table. Then open the:
• Pack containing the sterile finger pricker, blood tube and the tube of developer solution..
• Foil pouched test unit
• Do not pull or move the blue slider until instructed (10 minutes AFTER adding developer solution).
• Place these on a clean, level surface.
Allergy rapid test can be done at any time, irrespective of meals, seasons, diet, etc. The test provides an accurate answer, even if on the day of testing you suffer no allergy symptoms.
