    Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of serum or plasma (approximately 75 μl) to the specimen area and start the timer.
  4. For Venipuncture Whole Blood specimens:
    Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of whole bloods (approximately 75 μl) to the specimen area, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40 μl), and start the timer.
  5. For Fingerstick Whole Blood specimens:
    To use a capillary tube: Fill the capillary tube and transfer approximately 75 μl of fingerstick whole blood specimen to the specimen area of the test cassette, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40 μl) and start the timer.
    To use hanging drops: Allow 3 hanging drops of fingerstick whole blood specimen (approximately 75 μl) to fall into the specimen area of the test cassette, then add 1 drop of buffer (approximately 40 μl) and start the timer.
