Instructional Video on How to carry out your Blood Type Test

Read the entire instructions before carrying out the test. Ensure the applicators (eldonsticks) are only used for stirring and spreading the blood. You may find this test easier to carry out if you have a friend or family member assist you.

  1. Wash your hands before carrying out the test and again after carrying out the test.
  2. Open the foil pouch containing the test card. Place the card on a table or flat surface.
  3. Lay out the applicators (eldonsticks) ready for use.
  4. Fill a small cup with tap water and using the plastic pipette, draw a small volume of the tap water into the plastic pipette. You draw the water by simply holding the small, thin end in the water and squeezing the top part.
  5. With the test card still on a flat surface release one drop of water onto each of the coloured reagents spots on the EldonCard.

  7. Wipe a fingertip with the alcohol impregnated tissue provided and allow it to dry.
  8. Place the lancet against the end of the finger and press the green body against your finger to release the needle.

  9. Massage the finger from the bottom to the top to encourage blood flow. Press the blood towards fingertip. Repeat pressing until a drop with a 3 to 4 mm (1/8 inch) diameter is seen.

  10. Transfer the blood to an EldonStick, approached from beneath the finger. Don’t smear the blood over the skin.

  11. Place the eldonstick with the drop of blood into the first circle. The blood should touch the water already present. Gently press the side of the eldonstick head against the card and stir in the water and blood mixture until the coloured dry material has dissolved.

  12. Repeat this procedure for the other 3 circles, making sure you use a new eldonstick for each circle. You should NEVER transfer liquid from one circle to another.
  13. Once all 4 circles are complete gently tilt the whole card vertically on its bottom edge and keep this position for 10 seconds. You will see the blood flowing slowly to the bottom of the circle. Repeat this procedure tilting the card on the 3 other sides.

    To say the final blood type might be confusing if you get atypical results, but definitely, it is worth its price.
