Frequently asked questions
How does PreventID® Vital-D work?
First you will collect a small blood sample from the tip of your finger, using a lancet provided in the test kit. This is fast, painless and can be done in the comfort of your own home. You will then apply the sample to the carrier material and send it to the laboratory. This kind of dry blood sample does not need cooling. At the laboratory, experts will determine the 25-OH vitamin D levels in the dry blood sample. Your results and an explanation will be returned to you through the mail. If necessary, you may choose to discuss results with a doctor or pharmacist.
How accurate is this test?
A medical laboratory determines your vitamin D levels. It is therefore highly reliable and comparable to a full blood analysis.
How long does the test take?
Collecting the sample only takes a few minutes. A few days after you have sent the test in, you will receive your results and some annotations.
Whom was this test developed for?
PreventID® Vital-D can be used to determine personal vitamin D levels in the blood, accurately and painlessly, suitable even for children. The test kit was developed for health-conscious individuals who wish to make sure that both they themselves and their families have a sufficient supply of vitamin D. Especially, since these levels can easily be optimized by taking supplements or by a change in life style. Discuss any further measures with your doctor or pharmacist.
