One of the most difficult aspects of corporate wellness is testing. Whether checking for allergies, heart problems or any other health issues, finding an affordable and effective solution can be difficult.
In the past, blood testing has been costly both monetarily and in terms of time. The New Line Medical Blood Collection Kit is a revolutionary new way to screen blood and detect potentially debilitating health issues.
The New Line Medical Universal Collection kit is incredibly easy to use. Whereas traditional blood collection required blood samples to be accurately collected and transported, the New Line Medical Blood Collection Kit simplifies the entire process. With this professional blood collection kit:
- The area where blood will be drawn (typically the finger) is cleaned.
- Four drops of blood are extracted, using a lancet.
- These drops are placed on a special blood collection card.
- The area is gauzed and bandaged.
- The sample is mailed to a CLIA certified lab for testing.
The New Line Medical Universal Blood Collection Kit includes everything needed to perform these steps, including all extraction, cleaning and mailing. This makes professional blood collection kits ideal for two new testing options: Allergen-Specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) and Lipoprotein(a).
Allergen-Specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) blood tests can check corporate wellness clients and patients for allergic reactions to a particular substance. Common allergens tested for with blood collection kits include:
- Animal dander
- Dust mites
- Foods (Peanuts, Milk, Eggs or Shellfish)
As allergic reactions can range from mild to severe, uncovering them with a universal blood collection kit is very important.
Lipoprotein testing can actually be life-saving. Traditional cholesterol tests are not very effective at determining a client or patient’s risk for heart disease or heart attacks. This is because LDL (“bad” cholesterol) is not actually measured, but calculated. This, along with the fact that some heart disease causes are not tested with a cholesterol screen, makes the New Line Medical Universal Collection Kit a superior test.
By testing blood for lipoproteins, the kit assesses a person’s risk for cardiovascular disease. Lipoprotein(a) is one of the leading causes of heart disease, and can be measured with a blood collection kit. This method is far superior to testing cholesterols such as HDL and LDL. The New Line Medical Blood Collection Kit can detect heart conditions and actually help save lives.
