Home Testing Kit Resources


Before you start, please read our page on Taking Your Test

We get a lot of Home STI Kits returned to our lab with insufficient blood to enable a test to be completed. Before you complete the test and take your samples, please read our page below on Taking Your Test for helpful advice and information about how to get enough blood out, what to send back and how to get the most out of your test.

You can also read the Guidance Notes in your pack

You'll receive guidance notes with your Home HIV test kit, these will help you to take your own self-sample and let you know what you need to post back.  

Or watch the instructional video on taking your own blood

The below video will help you take your blood sample, using the safety lancets provided in the pack you'll have received from us. Please watch this step-by-step video, before attempting to collect your blood sample. It will take you through filling in the form, what to expect in your pack and instructions on taking the blood sample.
