PSA test, for prostate antigen detection, 1 item - product descriptionThe PSA Test is a quick test that can easily and easily determine if your PSA blood level is normal or above normal in your home. PSA is an abbreviation of the English name "Prostate Specific Antigen" and means prostate-specific antigen. In men with diseased prostate cells, much more PSA antigen enters the bloodstream.Blood PSA levels between 0 ng / ml and 4 ng / ml are considered normal. Exceeding normal PSA values ??indicates prostate pathology (benign hypertrophy, inflammation, cancer, etc.) and should be an indication for further diagnostics in this direction.PSA should be performed every year for men over 50 years of age.The package contains:- 1 aluminum sealed envelope, containing: 1 test plate, 1 plastic pipette and 1 desiccant,- 1 container with a dropper containing 1 ml diluent,- 1 sterile finger prick lancet. Usage:Just before performing the test, wash your hands thoroughly with soap, rinse with water and dry.Tear the foil envelope along the notch and remove only the test plate and plastic pipette. Dispose of the desiccant.Take the lancing device and push the orange element inside until you hear a characteristic click that indicates that the lancing device is active.Remove the orange element by "screwing" it to the left or right.Disinfect the tip of the ring finger or middle finger with alcohol swab. Increase the blood supply to the pad by massaging your finger from the root to the tip.Place the lancing device on the disinfected fingertip so that it adheres tightly and press the spring release button.The blade automatically and securely retracts into the lancing device housing.Lightly massage your finger to get a larger drop of blood.Holding the pipette in a horizontal position, bring the tip close to the blood drop. Do not squeeze the pipette itself or the fingertip. Under the influence of capillary forces, blood will begin to flow into the pipette. Keep the pipette attached to the drop until blood fills it to the black mark. If necessary, rub your finger again. Avoid air bubbles.Insert the blood from the pipette into the round window on the test plate.Wait until the blood is completely absorbed and without delay insert into the same window 4-5 full drops of diluent.Read the test result after 10 minutes.
