Not good with needles or blood?

If the sight or thought of blood or needles makes you feel squeamish, we advise that you get a friend or family member to help you carry out the sample collection. It is important that the person helping you wears a pair of surgical gloves and washes their hands thoroughly both before and after the sample is taken.
