  • Please read our Helpful Hints and Advice on how to take a test before you submit your first samples to our Lab. Many people struggle with getting enough blood into the container and we have provided some useful tips here on how to improve the samples you take. If you do need us to send you another kit (and its within a month since you last ordered), please get in contact with us by email and we can arrange to post you out a new kit. If it's been over a month, you should be able to re-order a kit on our website.

  • When you first register with us, you may find (especially if using a mobile device to register), that the address picker on our website has defaulted to the first address in the list. This sometimes happens and can mean that your orders do not arrive. Please check your address is correct before you place your first order, or in the event that you may have moved since you last ordered from us, please check and update your address before you order. To do this, login and go to "My Account" and then "My Account" again and you'll be able to view and amend your address there.
