Talking about home testing for HIV

Not sure



Did I impact the result?

I’m quite afraid of medical equipment so I managed to squeeze some blood out of my finger without lancet and dropped onto a dish then sucked it up (straight away). Has this impacted my result if I did not apply the tube straight to my finger? Quite worried.

Hi Not Sure Thanks for getting in touch with us. No your unusual method for sample collection will have had no effect on your test result. But I think the safety lancet would probably have been less traumatic or painful. I hope that this helps! Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
