Home INR Testing

If you take blood thinners, self-INR testing can reduce your risk of bleeding and clotting by providing reliable, real-time results from home. Lincare's mdINR program saves you time from going to your practitioner's office or lab to check your INR levels, and allows you to receive counseling and education from home.
