Once the area is cleaned, twist and pull the purple tip off the lancet, center the tip on your finger, and push done. This will ensure the fingertip is pricked and blood will start to release from that area. Apply some pressure to ensure a certain amount of blood is released from the finger into the tube. Continue to do it until you meet the line on the tube.

Generally, once that’s done, push the cap back on the tube to avoid any contamination and apply a plaster to your finger. Place the blood tube back into the box and fill out any details on the form provided. Then all you must do is send it off with the pre-paid envelope and wait for your results.
