Finger Prick Kits

FINGER-PRICK KITS
In the NHS, finger prick blood tests are quite common for well-known conditions such as diabetes. The finger prick blood tests that we supply at Blue Horizon Medicals are not only tested in an accredited laboratory that is also used by the NHS, but by utilising a laboratory for the testing we can test a far wider range of biochemistry and endocrinology parameters than can be tested by a point of care device alone.

The lab my GP surgery use would not test everything I needed to have an informed diagnosis, so in May this year I looked for alternatives through the Thyroid UK Charity and Blue Horizon came highly recommended. Once I'd pricked my finger the blood flowed brilliantly for about 2 seconds! No need to panic, following the instructions, I then massaged my finger to get the flow going again & was able to fill the capsule. Posted off, I was amazed to get my results 2 days later! Brilliant service & I have recommended it to so many others since, because it is so simple & quick. - Linda, Nottingham

How does this finger prick home blood test work?

By placing the lancet against your finger, a hidden needle springs out to puncture your skin. The needle then safely pops back into the lancet device. The lancet is a sterile class 2 medical device.

How much blood is needed?

Typically, we will need 15-18 drops of blood for your home blood test. This equates to around 800 microlitres, or 0.8 millilitres. Visually, this is about 1/8 of a teaspoon – so not very much at all.

Is it accurate?

Yes, the tests are accurate and are tested by accredited UK laboratories that the NHS itself uses.

Does it hurt?

Yes it does a little. But having a finger prick home blood test hurts a lot less than a nurse extracting blood from your arm using a vacutainer needle. We’ve trialled five different lancets and supply the one that delivers the best results, enabling you to send a good quality sample to the lab.

What kind of home blood tests can be carried out with a fingerprick test?

As empowering as the blood test kits are, with a small quantity of blood there is a limit to the number of tests that may be performed on one sample. Additionally, the risk of the blood clotting is greater than with a traditional vacutainer sample, especially as the return to the laboratory is by post. We therefore exclude large profiles from this blood collection method, and exclude anything including or that is a part of liver function tests, electrolytes or full blood counts.

What if I don’t get enough blood?

About 15% of our customers that choose to provide a sample using the finger-prick method will fail to provide enough viable sample for the laboratory to analyse. The most common reason for failure is not reading the instructions, so we urge you to do this. If for some reason you cannot provide enough sample, we are happy to offer you the following options.

  • UPGRADE TO A VACUTAINER - We can send you a vacutainer kit so that you may have the blood taken professionally – the kit itself will be sent free of charge. If you would like to attend one of our Partner BMI locations the cost is £39 or if you would like one of our nurses to visit you anywhere in the UK the cost is £49. Alternatively, if you know of a phlebotomy service in your are you are welcome to make use of it - everything is included, apart from a tourniquet and a sharps box.
  • TRY AGAIN - Another finger-prick kit can be sent out to you, we would need to charge a small administration fee of £5 as in our experience, if you have failed once with this method, you are very likely to fail again.
  • REFUND - A 100% refund.

Other Blood Testing Services by Blue Horizon Medicals.
All of the services outlined above rely on the postal service not just to send the kits to you, but also to get your blood back to the Laboratory.This is fine for the majority of tests on this website but sometimes a test that you require will have special handling requirements such as freezing, a need to be spun down by a centrifuge, or have a need for immediate testing. In these situations, and also where turnaround time cannot be reliant on the postal service we recommend that you speak to us about the other services that we can offer you. For speed we recommend our London Service, but we have some good profiles available through 60 Spire and Nuffield Hospitals across the UK.
