Test with wet hands?

When I pricked my finger with the Lancet my fingers were wet from when I had washed them with water. Does this have any effect/impact on my result?

Hi AJJ, No this should not affect your result, as long as a sufficient amount of blood was provided and you received a control line when you ran the test then no, it shouldn't impact any result. Kindest regards, Becky, BioSURE UK LTD
