A test pack enabling you to take a Vitamin D blood spot from your finger and return it to the laboratory. The analysis is performed by Black Country Pathology Services at their NHS laboratories in Birmingham and West Bromwich, UK. Their large NHS laboratory has a team of scientists who have offered Vitamin D analysis for over 30 years. Results are sent back to you by email as a PDF report. The test pack is non-refundable.
There are no specific age restrictions on this finger prick blood test that you perform at home; however, they are designed for adults. If you use the kit on children we advise that you have a trained nurse or phlebotomist help take the sample. There’s nothing stopping you from helping someone else do it, but it could potentially be alarming for someone to experience a sharp tap on the end of the finger, so you will have to use your judgement.
