Taking the Food Intolerance Test
Lorisian food intolerance tests use a very simple finger prick blood collection wand system. Because the finger prick system is so easy to use, the sample can be taken in store, in pharmacy, in the clinic, gym, work place or at home.
The sample is then posted back to the Lorisian Laboratory (in a pre-paid envelope), tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions to a maximum of 150 food and drink ingredients.
Refer to the step by step guide below.
Included in the kit
1 x Antiseptic wipe
1 x Lancet
1 x Absorbent wand and container
1 x Plaster
1 x Customer details form
1 x Prepaid envelope
- Keep out of reach of children
- Should only be used by an adult
- Lancet is for individual use and should not be shared with others
- Return used lancet in the kit box provided for safe disposal.
Your client should not take the test if:
- Suffering from blood borne diseases such as Hepatitis or HIV
- Under the age of 2
- Pregnant or breast feeding
- Taking steroids or immunosuppressants
Complete the customer details form and write your client's name and the date clearly on the side of the wand container with the pen provided.
Your client should wash their hands thoroughly in warm water and dry.
Wipe the side of your client's finger or thumb with the antiseptic wipe and allow to dry.
Twist and pull the cover off the lancet.
Place the lancet against the side of your client's finger or thumb and press the green plunger quickly and firmly to puncture.
Hold client's hand at waist level (or lower than heart) and massage finger or thumb from base to tip to produce a large droplet of blood.
Hold the wand by the plastic cover and allow the blood to soak up. The wand should be red throughout, showing it is completely full. We need this to be full as it contains the precise amount of blood needed for testing.
Immediately place the full wand inside the wand cover.
Put the sample and the lancet (for safe disposal) back inside the box; and replace the lid on the box.
Place your sample and lancet in the kit box. Take your completed customer details form and kit box, and place in the envelope provided.
Remember to include the customer details form, without this Lorisian cannot process a blood sample.
