The ELDON HOME KIT 2511 is a self-test kit to determine your blood type inside the AB0- and RhD blood group systems on an ELDONCARD 2511 with one test per card.
The blood grouping systems
The ABO System classifies blood into four possible blood types, A, B, AB and 0. The RhD group of the complex rhesus system classifies blood as either positive (RhD pos) or negative (RhD neg). If blood of one type is mixed with blood of another type, it will form clumps or clusters - the so-called agglutinates - except blood of type 0 RhD neg, which does not agglutinate with any other blood type. By mixing your blood with specific monoclonal antibodies on the ELDONCARD you can determine your blood type. Your genes determine your blood type. A blood type determination with the ELDONCARD is possible from the age of approximately 12 months and you will retain the same blood type for the rest of your life.
How does the EldonCard function?
The dried antibody reagents can be seen in circles on the ELDONCARD as spots colored green for Anti-A, red for Anti-B, yellow for Anti-D. A control circle with a blue spot serves to verify that the result is valid.
Perform the test by dissolving the dried reagent in each circle with a droplet of water and mixing it with blood. It is essential to get sufficient volume of blood and to avoid transfer of liquid between the four circles. For this purpose, you use four ELDON STICKs to transfer blood to each circle and to stir the liquid thoroughly. The tilting steps described below are also essential to complete the test.
Not for screening purposes prior to transfusion.
Read the instructions for use thoroughly before performing the test.
Follow all directions carefully to get an accurate reading. A video demonstration is available at www.eldoncard.com.
This test is for one blood type determination per ELDONCARD 2511.
This test is for single use.
Store at room temperature (5 - 37 ? (41 - 99 ºF)), out of reach of children.
Do not bring other persons in contact with your blood. It can be infectious.
Not for use by hemophiliacs. U
se the test before the expiry date on the package.
If any of the contents are missing, broken or opened, do not use the kit. Bring the kit back to the store where you bought it.
Do not open the envelope until you are ready to carry out the test. Once opened, use the ELDONCARD on the same day.
Check that colored stains of same size are present in each circular field.
Always remember to separate the EldonSticks so that they are split-up into four individual EldonSticks. In order to guarantee the proper drop size (approx. 22 uL), be sure to hold the plastic pipette vertically when dispensing one drop of water directly upon the colored reagent spots without touching. Also, be sure to avoid contact with reagents or the card surface (allow the drop to fall freely) in order to guarantee the proper drop size and to avoid mixing between the reagent circles.
An ELDON STICK must only be used in one circle, use for every circle a new ELDON STICK.
Thoroughly wash and dry your hands before performing the finger prick in step 6.
Do not test the safety lancet prior to use. The needle/blade inside the lancet can only be released once.
Take care to avoid any mixing between circles.
