Gently pull down on the lower eyelid and place the folded portion of the strip on the inside of your lower eyelid. Close your eye. Start the timer.
Leave the strip in place for a total of 5 minutes. Adjust the placement of the strip if needed. If the strip falls out before the 5 minutes is complete, wait 30 minutes and repeat your collect using the extra sample strip provided.
After five minutes, hold the end of the strip, open your eye and gently lift the strip our of your eyelid. Do not be concerned with the amount of fluid on the strip. It does not need to be wet.
Drop and release the sample strip into the open sample tube. Make sure the folded tip that was in your eyelid enters the tube first.
Open the sample solution by twisting to remove the cap. Squeeze all the liquid into the sample tube.
Tighten the lid onto the sample tube, ensuring the lid is seated properly and sealed securely.
