In order to determine certain health conditions, blood tests may be required, and although pathology laboratory tests are used to look for specific items in the blood, there are also some
home testing devices on the market to do
blood testing in the privacy of your own home.
Although laboratory analysis are preferable to home testing kits, they do use far more blood, and home testing kits normally only need a couple of drops of blood, which is painlessly obtained with a sterile "Medlance" device.
Some of our test kits do not require blood and use urine as testing medium.
All required items, such as the Medlance and
alcohol swab, to clean the skin with, prior to taking blood, are included in our test kits.
With a home test kit, the major advantage is that the test results are immediate and private.
We do suggest that if you are unsure, or have a concern regarding their home test result, to consult their medical practitioner immediately for further testing, consultation and counseling.
