EldonCard: Home Blood Type Testing Kit
Knowing your blood type can help you understand your health better; it is also needed for blood donations and important for safe pregnancies. Most critically, it could save your life if you need an emergency blood transfusion. You can learn your blood type in just a couple of minutes using the EldonCard.
Depending on the antigen on the red blood cells the blood type is classified by two elements: The ABO grouping system and the Rhesus (Rh) factor which is either present (Rh positive) or not present (Rh negative). For example, if you have A antigens on your red blood cells, your blood type is A. If someone has both A and B antigens, they are type AB. If you do not have any antigens on the surface of red blood cells, your blood type is O. For each antigen on the blood cell, the opposite antibody is produced in the plasma. For example, type B blood has anti-type A antibodies. Receiving blood that’s incompatible with one’s own blood type may trigger a serious immune response that can be fatal. While there are more than 20 blood-type systems, ABO and Rh are by far the most important.
EldonCard is the most trusted and accurate diagnostic tool for point-of-care (near patient-testing) and home-testing of blood typing of the ABO-, and Rhesus systems. Unlike other devices, once the test is complete, you have the option of preserving the result for your records in a convenient credit card format.
The Home Blood Type Test Kit contains everything you need to test your blood type:
The blood type test is easy to use for everyone: You simply prick a tiny hole in your fingertip, let a large drop of blood fall onto an EldonStick and transfer your blood to the four reagent circles. Wait for 40 seconds and the card tells you what blood type you have.
