A blood microcollection container and associated lancet-collection assembly is provided for making a puncture wound, engaging the wound and rapidly receiving blood from the wound. The assembly incorporates a lancet together with a scoop arrangement for engaging the blood source, and for directing in a rapid and efficient manner the blood to a collection chamber. A two-position cap is provided for sealing the scoop collector of the assembly prior to use, and for permanently locking to the collector after use to prevent exposure of the lancet and collector to the person handling the blood sample, or contamination of the blood sample from outside sources.
