A quick guide to performing this test:

  • The test will take 10 minutes to complete.
  • The location of testing is chosen according to the convenience of the user.
  • Before the test, have the following items ready to hand: a dropper, a tube of buffer, a lancet, and an alcohol pad.
  • You will need to wash your hands before taking the test.
  • It is recommended to have a timer and an additional sterile pad or plaster ready to stop the blood.
Procedure:
  1. Unpack the test cassette from the sealed foil package and place it side by on a flat surface.
  2. Prepare the lancet: twist and break its cover.
  3. Prepare to take the sample: wipe the tip of your middle or ring finger with a sterile pad and let it dry for a few seconds.
  4. Take the prepared lancet in the opposite hand and press on the sterile skin area of the finger.
  5. Lightly swipe the finger with your thumb towards the puncture site. Do not touch the sterile puncture site!
  6. Squeeze the lancet and pull it away immediately. Keep your palm facing downwards and wipe off the first drop of blood.
  7. When the second drop of blood appears, gently insert the capillary of the dropper and allow the blood to rise to the set limit. If the blood is difficult to rise, you can use your thumb to additionally swipe a few times towards the puncture site. Do not pull the capillary away to avoid air bubbles!
  8. After collecting a set amount of blood, transfer into the sample well (S) of the cassette. You can reuse the sterile swab to prevent more blood from coming out.
  9. When all the blood has been absorbed, add 1 drop of buffer in the cassette buffer well (B).
  10. Start the timer for 5 minutes.
  • The coloured line in the (C) and (T) areas indicates NORMAL levels of ferritin in the blood.
  • A coloured line ONLY in the (C) area indicates a LOW level of ferritin in the blood. Potential indication of iron deficiency.
  • A coloured line ONLY in the (T) area indicates an INVALID result.

All used components of the kit are packaged in a biohazardous waste bag and handled according to local requirements.
