Home Access Blood Sample
      #166168 - 12/05/05 09:43 AM

For the Home Access test blood sample, it says to completely fill the circle with blood, and it has to completely soak to the back too. The front is mostly soaked, but not completely soaked on the back. What do I do?

Use the second lancet and prick your finger again. Do not send the sample unless the circle is full and its soaked to the back. They will not be able to process it otherwise. Good luck with the test.

I used both lancets and now I have to find a way to draw blood again. This is scary...maybe I will try to cut myself shaving.

I think you can buy lancets from your local pharmacy.

I believe that when they receive the test, in the event you od not have enough blood sample, you are alerted to that fact when you call for results... can anyone confirm?

That is correct. And the result is you have to buy a new test and re-do the whole thing. Hence, my advice to make sure the circle is full, front and back.
