Self-test for the determination of the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) in whole blood samples 

The Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. Its function is to fluidify the ejaculate and to increase sperm mobility. 
PSA also plays a role in dissolving cervical mucus, allowing sperm to enter the uterus. Small quantities of PSA are normally found in the blood of men with a healthy prostate. 
PSA levels may increase with prostate pathologies (prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia etc.), naturally with age or after prostate surgery or specific diagnosis tests (such as rectal examination, prostate biopsy etc.). 

This test is intended for:
- Men who do not have symptoms, aged over 45, who wish to check their prostate;
- Men with urinary tract symptoms (difficulty urinating, pain, increased frequency).

Draw a blood sample by using the sterile lancet provided.
Collect the sample indicated with the black line by using the capillary pipette provided.
Deposit the collected specimen into the sample well (S) indicated on the test cassette.
Add 2 drops of the diluent and wait 5 minutes before reading the result.

What happens if the results reading time is not met? The test has been carried out correctly when the instructions for use are followed. It includes the reading time and the interpretation of the results shown at the "RESULTS INTERPRETATION" section of the instructions for use.

How to prove that the test worked correctly? A coloured line will appear at the control region (C) on the test device, showing that the test performed correctly. The absence of the coloured line suggests to repeat the test with a new device and a new sample.

How to interpret the test if the control and test lines have different intensities? The colour and intensity of the lines do not affect the interpretation of the result. The test has to be considered positive regardless of the colour intensity of the test line (T).
