Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- 1 EldonCard 2511 in an air and moisture-proof envelope
- 4 EldonSticks
- 1 Skin Cleansing Swab
- 1 Automatic Lancet
- 1 Water Dropper
- 1 Instruction Sheet
You should know:
Your EldonCard is delivered in a moisture-proof envelope. Once exposed to the air, it must be used within the same day. This test kit can be used only once. Do not use any of the accesories coming into contact with the blood for more than one person. Perform the test at room temperature. Wash your hands before and after your blood test.
When you are done:
Dispose of the Lancet, Disinfectant Wipe and the EldonSticks.
Anti-A: Murine IgM Birma-1, Anti-B: Murine IgM LB-2, Anti-D: Human IgM MS-201
8 Simple Steps
- Fill in the EldonCard. Enter information for the person being tested. Do no touch the four rings at the top of the EldonCard.
- Prepare the EldonCard. Fill the Water Dropper from the glass of water. Place on water droplet in the center of each of the four rings. Do not touch the card with the dropper.
- Prepare the Lancet. Remove the colored cap, slowly twisting and pulling until it comes loose. The needle will remain hidden.
- Prepare fingertip. Soak your ring finger in warm water for 2 minutes to soften the skin. Dry skin and disinfect fingertip with the Disinfectant Wipe. Let dry. Place the tip of the lancet against side of fingertip. Press the Lancet firmly into fingertip to release the short, single-use needle. It will automatically retract after breaking the surface of the skin.
- Draw blood. Massage your finger to press the blood toward the fingertip until a blood droplet forms that is about 1/8 inch in diameter.
- Transfer blood droplet to EldonCard. Hold the blood drop above the EldonStick. Take care not to smear the blood on your fingertip. Transfer droplet to the first ring. Place the blood droplet in the center of the ring, where you placed the water droplet. Leave the tip of the EldonStick in the center of the ring. (You will use it to stir the droplet in a moment). Transfer a blood droplet to each of the remaining three rings, using a new EldonStick for each ring.
- Stir and spread. Use each ring's own Eldon-Stick to mix the blood droplet with the water droplet. Spread each blood droplet to completely fill its ring.
- Rotate. The blood will begin to interact with special coating. To make sure the process works, you must tilt and rotate the EldonCard for 40 seconds:
- Hold the Eldon card upright for 10 seconds to let the blood "flow" downward within the rings.
- Rotate the card 180 degrees and hold for 10 second to reverse the flow.
- Rotate 90 degrees and hold for 10 seconds.
- Rotate 180 degrees and hold for 10 seconds.
Let the EldonCard dry at room temperature. Use the chart to the right to interpret your test results

A small number of persons have weak D antigens on the blood cells, and an agglutinate may not be seen, Only specialized laboratories can detect week D antigens with certainty.
In rare case non-specific agglutinates may develop in the presence of certain proteins. If so, the agglutinate is also visible in the control circle, which mean an invalid result. A new test has to be performed. It is possible that your blood type can only be determined in a specialized centre.
