The Sickle SCAN® test kit requires a small amount of blood, five microliters, taken by fingerprick, heelstick, or venipuncture using the provided Capillary Sampler.  The Sampler is placed into the buffered loaded PreTreatment Module to release hemoglobin by lysing erthyrocytes.  Five drops of the treated sample are dropped from the PreTreatment Module and added to the sample inlet of the Sickle SCAN® cartridge.  The treated sample flows through the test cartridge for 5 minutes before the result is read.
