I would like to know how the Fellows do typing and fingerprinting of clients in the office.

I've already determined that the fingerprinting strips are much easier to use than a foam ink pad!

Do you purchase fingerprinting strips and blood typing reagents in bulk? If so, do you get them from NAP or elsewhere?

How many people do you want to Genotype?

I use the GenoTyping kits from NAP, I could save money getting the fingerprinting strips and PROP strips from elsewhere, since I do not need more protractors.

I sometimes use the charts in the kit to help clients follow along and try to get them to understand the process. Sometimes I give them the charts, but I cannot give all clients the colored charts, since I use the kits for several clients.

I use the NAP kits for blood typing. Compared with Eldon cards from other places it is cheaper or about the same price.  Using bulk reagents is cheaper than Eldon cards, but for me it is better to use the Eldon cards. They are quick, easy and less error prone.  I generally only blood type one person or a family at once. I have never blood typed a large group at once.

I am sure over time NAP will offer something for professionals.

I'm going to use NAP products. The most accurate I think.

How do you determine white lines? I have found that I don't always see them with the mag-glass and doctor's light.

Is the discount accessible online, or should I call NAP?

Thinking of having a "get to know yourself better" party where I blood type and genotype some of our immediate family.  I'm a thrifty type $ wise (have to be).  How many taster strips and fingerprinting strips do you get with a genotyping kit?  How many people can use those?

Also can you use one blood typing card to type up to 4 people (may be put drops of blood on the outside of the dot?

Plenty of taster strips for everyone, I find that you can use the fingerprinting strip quite a few times if you think it through before starting, the typing card might be  hard  to use a few times. Can people pay you for the typing cards? It is not much  about $11.00 including shipping, compared to blood typing in a lab which is $150 here in the US in a lab.

Sounds fun. One of the women I met at the conference Pat did this with her whole family and encouraged them to at least know their superfoods.

Thanks Andrea!

In Australia here the typing cards cost a bit more $18 (our $ is less than yours though!) as we have to get them through an affiliate in New Zealand.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who's thinking measure up party.  Good idea to focus on the super foods, thanks.  

The father of the fmaily knows his type but is anti-health food and against the whole idea.  Wouldn't hurt him to try it out since he has many health problems! (diabetes, gall bladder gone, reflux, muscle / joint pain).  His wife said though that the only way to make him try would be for it to work really well on us (she's an O and is following the diet I guess he's A).  So we're trying extra hard to get healthy to help him out!   If that makes sense..
