Test Method 1 : The test uses a blood sample that's analyzed in the laboratory. To get a blood sample, the lab technician will draw blood from a vein in your arm or the back of your hand. First, they'll clean the site with an antiseptic wipe. They'll wrap a band around your arm to apply pressure to the area and gently insert the needle into the vein. The blood will collect into a tube attached to the needle. Once the tube is full, the band and the needle will be removed from your arm. They'll put pressure on the puncture site to stop any bleeding.
In infants or small children, a lancet is used to puncture the skin and the blood collects in a small glass pipette, test strip, or onto a slide. A bandage may be placed over the area if there's any bleeding.
