Vacutainer Home Blood Test Kit
Vacutainer kits require a healthcare professional to take your blood.
Blue Horizon Medicals have been supplying vacutainer kits to our patients since 2009. Vacutainer kits require a healthcare professional to take your blood, and often your own GP, practice nurse, or your local hospital or clinic will be glad to assist. The advantage of a vacutainer kit is that it can hold a lot of blood, making testing for over 40 parameters possible, and a bloodraw is more likely to succeed than with a fingerprick microtainer sample.

DIY Finger Prick Testing, Ask for a Home Visit or Self Arrange
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.
Your blood is our top priority, but we don't forget that you (the ideal container for your blood!) need to know what is going on with your kit, sample, and results at all times.

I had blood tests carried out with Blue Horizon- they sent me the finger prick kit but I was only able to get a few drops out of my fingers and you have to fill a small test tube! There was no chance of me getting enough blood out, but I have quite poor circulation. I rang them up and they just sent me the kit with the needle etc (no extra cost) and I went to my local phlebotomist at the health centre and they were happy to draw the blood and I just put it straight in the post.

I have never used a finger prick test as I am a total wuss so I use a phlebotomist. I have used a BH vacutainer kit three times, I think. For one of them, I blagged a free blood draw from a nurse at my GP's surgery once, she was going to charge but didn't know how much to charge, so I got it for free! Julie, Oxfordshire
