SAMPLE COLLECTION TIPS

You got this!

Here are a few helpful tips before you begin:

Tip 1:

Start hydrating (a LOT!) at least 24 hours before you expect to draw your blood. Blood is 92% water, so aim for 4-5 big glasses, including 1 right before your do your finger prick. Warm or room temperature water is also better than ice cold water.

Tip 2:

Warm your hands and forearms for better blood flow! You can wash your hands and run your forearms under warm water for at least 4-5 minutes before you take the sample.

Tip 3:

Make sure to place your hand on a firm surface when using the lancet, like a countertop or kitchen counter, to ensure that you get the proper depth when activating the safety lancet.

Tip 4:

Massaging helps to stimulate blood flow. Massage from your forearm down to your fingertip.

Tip 5:

Blood flows more freely downhill, so if you can, stand up and try to hang your hand below your arm so your blood flows downwards with gravity. There isn’t a set position, just make sure you’re comfortable and blood is flowing downwards.

Tip 6:

The best site for a finger puncture is just off the center of the finger pad. The tip of the finger should be avoided. Also make sure you’re using either your middle or ring finger.
