Celiac disease is a serious, lifelong, gastrointestinal disorder that can cause a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms, such as diarrhea, abdominal distension, weight loss, malnutrition and skin disorders, due to permenant intolerance to gluten. Gluten is a complex mixture of storage proteins found in wheat, barley and rye. By following a gluten free diet, these symptoms can be avoided.
Suitable for adults.
How to use
Twist the grey cap until it bounces up. Continue to rotate the cap for at least one full round Gently massage the fingertip then clean it with the alcohol-soaked swab. Leave until the finger is dry. Warming up your finger will make sample collection easier Press the automatic lancet with the round opening firmly against the cleaned fingertip, and activate it with the button. The puncture is practically painless Press a drop of blood out of the fingertip. Open the plastic vessel and remove with caution the glass capillary. Hold the glass capillary horizontally in the drop until it has completely filled Place the filled glass capillary in the tube containing buffer and close the tube firmly with the cap. Shake the tube several times until the blood from the capillary is mixed completely with the buffer Remove the cap of the buffer tube again and place the test stick in the buffer tube. The level of the buffer should not exceed the max-level indicated on the test stick. Avoid any reagent drops or foam on the sides of the tube. The test result can be read after 5 minutes. Remove the test stick from the buffer tube for reading.
