When Should I Take My Sample?
Firstly, please check the product page or your original order email for any specific instructions. Some blood tests have different requirements e.g. requiring you to fast beforehand or to collect the sample on a particular day.
In general, we highly recommend collecting your sample between Monday to Thursday. Then please post your sample on the same day in the prepaid mailbag included in your home test kit.
This helps ensure your sample isn’t delayed over the weekend and allows the laboratory to receive & process the freshest samples possible.
If you do want to post your sample on a Friday, we recommend purchasing a priority postage option at the post office to ensure next-day delivery. The post will be received by the laboratory on Saturdays.
