Challenges with using current rapid diagnostic tests can impact the reliability

  • Choosing the wrong lancet or failing to lance the skin properly1
  • Collecting too little blood or transferring it to the wrong place1
  • Following the procedure’s multiple steps in the wrong order, mixing up different components or spilling solutions1
