Rapid self-test for the semi-quantitative detection of vitamin D in human whole blood 

Vitamin D refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate and zinc. Vitamin D is produced by skin exposed to ultraviolet B radiation or obtained from dietary sources, including supplements. Average daily vitamin D intake in the population and current dietary reference intake values are often inadequate to maintain optimal vitamin D levels. Virtually every cell in our body has receptors for Vitamin D, meaning that they all require "sufficient" level of Vitamin D for adequate functioning. Vitamin deficiency has been linked to various serious diseases: osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, pregnancy complications, diabetes, strokes, autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases, etc.


VITAMIN D TEST is intended for persons commonly at risk for vitamin D deficiency, such as people who get tired and fatigued easily, inadequate sun exposure, limited oral intake, or have impaired intestinal absorption. 

Draw a blood sample using the sterile lancet provided.
Collect the sample indicated by the black line, using the capillary pipette provided.
Deposit the collected sample inside the well (S) indicated on the cassette.
Add 2 drops of diluent and wait 10 minutes before reading the result, comparing the lines obtained with the card provided.

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).
