With men of older age the prostate
gland can become a serious threat for their health. Besides
prostate cancer, several other disorders can be diagnosed in an
early phase, which increases the chance of successful treatment.
For men between 45 and 70 years old it can be useful to test the
prostate periodically. The prostate gland influences a man's ability
to urinate and can also affect his sexual activity.
This test has been designed so that you can identify
the levels of P.S.A. (Prostate Specific Antigen)
present in your blood. P.S.A. is a chemical
that appears in your bloodstream in higher concentrations when the gland
is enlarged or cancerous. This test is easy to use and results can be
read in 10 minutes.
In-Vitro Diagnostic Self Test For Home Use. For external
An easy to use visual test to detect
abnormal levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) above the normal range
What is PSA?
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein in your blood
secreted by the prostate gland.
How does this test work?
The level of PSA is measured in the blood sample. Elevated
levels (greater than 4ng/ml) may be an important signal of possible prostate
disease. This test is designed with a cut off level of 4ng/ml.
What do I do if the test indicates a positive result?
This test is meant only as a screening tool, if you get
a positive result, call your doctor and discuss the result. Your doctor
may decide to run more tests.
How long do I have to wait to read the results?
The test results must be read at 10
minutes after the addition of the test solution. The results are not valid
if they are read after 10 minutes.
What if the lines in the results window are not the
same colour or intensity?
The colour or intensity of the lines in the results window
do not have any significance. If the lines are visible then they can be
interpreted as explained in the test results interpretation section of
What is the purpose of the line in the control area?
The line in the control area assures
you that the test was run correctly. If no line appears in the control
area then the test is invalid and should be repeated.

2) Tear the protective pouch (from the notch) and only get out the device and the pipette. Dispose of the small desiccant bag.
3) Push the orange small rod into the body of the lancet until hearing a CLICK indicating the device is activated. - fig. A
Be careful not to push the trigger because the needle can come out too early.
4) Remove the orange rod by turning it on the left or on the right. - fig. B
5) Clean the end of the forefinger or of the middle finger with a cotton pad damped with alcohol.
Massage the end of the finger, from the base of the finger to the end, to enhance the blood flow.
6) Strongly press the extremity of the lancet on the part of the finger which is cleaned with alcohol in order to obtain a very good contact.
Press on the trigger button. - fig. C
The tip retracts automatically and safely after use.
7) Keeping the hand down massage the end that was stung to obtain a blood drop. - fig. D
8) Without pressing the pipette bulb, put it in contact with the drop. - fig. E
The blood migrates into the pipette through the capillarity to the line indicated on the pipette.
You may massage again your finger to obtain more blood if the line is not reached. As far as possible, avoid of air bubbles.
9) Put the blood collected with the pipette into the sample well of the device, by pressing on the pipette bulb. - fig. F
10) Wait for the blood totally being dispensed in the well. Using the dropper bottle, add 5 drops of diluent into the sample well of the device - fig. G
11) Read the result after 10 minutes.
How to read your results
Two coloured lines appear in the window under the marks T (Test) and C (Control). The intensity of the line T may be clearer than the intensity of the line C.
This result means that the prostate specific antigen level is higher than the norm and that you should consult a doctor.
Only one coloured line appears under the mark C (Control). This result means that the prostate specific antigen level is normal.
NON VALID RESULT
No line appears or a coloured line appears under the mark T (Test) without any line under the mark C. In this case, it is not possible to interpret the test, which must be considered as non valid. It is recommended to repeat the test with a new Test PSA and a sample of fresh blood.
Limitations of the Test
This is a screening test. Additional clinical investigations
will be needed for a final diagnosis. If you get a positive result, you
should consult your doctor immediately. Further medical consultation and
investigations with your GP are essential, this may include a further
PSA test and a digital rectal exam and other methods of diagnosing prostate

The One-Step Whole Blood Test uses a multi-layer
filtration, flow and antibody system to develop a coloured line to show
the test is working correctly and if the level of PSA present is greater
than 4ng/ml in whole blood. Although the One-Step Whole Blood
Test is very accurate, erroneous results may occur. Always check with
your doctor if you get unexpected results.
