A reagent strip (10) and lance (6) are integrated to form a blood sampler and component tester (2). The reagent strip (10) is adapted for application against the skin of a patient and carries a reagent that indicates the concentration of a blood component in a blood sample placed in contact therewith. The lance (6), which is used to pierce the skin of a patient, is coupled to the reagent strip (10) through a resilient dome (4) which translates the lance between an extended position (where the lance through a guide member (20) extends beyond the reagent strip to puncture the skin of a patient) and a retracted position.
