Test at home with our easy-to-use kit

Our safe medical-grade kits make collecting your sample and sending it to our labs quick and convenient.

Send your sample in the pre-paid envelope to our accredited lab and you will receive accurate results within 48hrs

We’ve done extensive research, working with the University of the West of England to ensure that the amount of blood sampled and the way it’s collected means we are able to give you the most accurate analysis possible.

What’s included in the Forth Edge kit?

In your kit, you’ll find

  • Up to four lancets, used to puncture the fingertip.
  • One or two microcontainers, depending on the tests you have purchased, in which your blood sample will be collected.
  • Full instructions on how to collect your sample and ensure that it’s in the best possible condition for testing.
  • Pre-paid packaging for sending the sample back to the Forth Edge labs.

Forth Edge kits are assembled from approved NHS suppliers and are CE compliant, meaning they are safe, standardised and fully traceable.

How to collect a successful sample

To make collecting your blood sample as quick and easy as possible, and to ensure your sample is in ideal condition for our labs to test, there are a few simple things you can do. 

  • Collect your sample first thing in the morning immediately after a hot shower, and before you eat.
  • Drink a large glass of water 30 minutes before you collect your sample, to ensure you are well hydrated.
  • Don’t squeeze your finger too hard as this can cause the blood cells to burst.
  • Ensure you fill the tube to the marked line. If you’ve got a purple tube in your kit, give it a shake after every drop added.
  • Post the sample as soon as you’ve collected it, between Monday and Thursday.

What happens after I’ve sent my sample?

Each sample has a unique barcode that is scanned as it arrives at our labs, so you’ll receive a text message to let you know we’ve got it. We then process your sample, and you’ll receive another message to let you know your results are available and viewable on your Forth Edge app.
