How to collect my ADx 100 blood sample (with video)
Collecting a blood sample for your Everlywell test kit is simple. Blood collection instructions vary by test, so please make sure to follow the appropriate instructions for any tests you are taking that use the ADx 100 card.
Step 1: Write your DOB, name, and the collection date on the card. If you do not include this information on your sample, it may be rejected by the lab. Select ring or pinkie ﬁngertip and clean the desired puncture site using the alcohol prep pad. The best site for a finger puncture is just off the center of the finger pad.
Step 2: Remove and discard the plastic safety end on the lancet by twisting and pulling it.
Properly Collected Specimen:
- Do not perform this test without fasting for 8-10 hours prior to collection. This will facilitate more accurate results.
- Do not use heat to assist drying.
- Please Note - Under no circumstances should you use materials other than the lancets included in your test kit. If you require additional lancets or assistance with your collection, please contact our team by emailing [email protected]
