I looked this code up in encoderpro.com and here is what the description says

This code is may be requested as single step qualitative or semi-quantitative immunoassay to identify the presence of a specific infectious agent antibodies. Specimen is serum. Method is immunoassay. Single step methods frequently use a reagent strip for the specific antibody.

Since it says specimen serum then yes I would think to use a VP or a finger stick.
