General Tips

  • Drink lots of water at least 30 minutes before your test and do your test in the morning. Post the same day.

  • Avoid Saturday and Sunday for your tests, it may sit too long in the post. Every other day is fine.

  • Some people find it difficult to prick themselves the first time. This fear usually disappears after one or two tests after realising that finger pricking gives little to no pain. Most people break this psychological barrier and find it easier from there onwards.

  • Some people find it helpful to ask a relative to help either to prick you or to massage your hand or direct your finger to collect the drops of blood in the container.

  • While the recommended total time to fill the container with lavender/purple cap is recommended to be about 1 minute, there is some tolerance.

  • It is better to keep calm and conduct the extraction relaxed in one go if possible. Give yourself some time and do not perform the test in a rush.

  • Yellow cap tubes have a longer tolerance as it will also require more time to be filled out so the 1-minute rule does not apply, you can take a few more minutes.

  • Do not forget to turn the lavender/purple tube upside down about 10 times to make sure that the blood touches the walls of the tube with the anti-coagulants. Please, do not shake.

  • If you didn't collect enough sample let your physician know and we will send you another kit free of charge.

  • While we recommend the use of Algocyte only when medically needed, if you feel unwell at any time, seek medical advice. The test is, however, very simple once you navigate and master the details.
