Is it safe and accurate to send lab tests through the mail?

After you collect samples using one of our home test kits, you seal samples in individual plastic bags we provide, place the plastic bags in the box the kit arrived in, and place the box into a prepaid mailer which you seal and return. This packaging prevents your samples from being contaminated or compromised in any way in transit. Once properly collected and sealed for return, your samples (urine samples, throat/vaginal/rectal swabs, and blood spot cards) will remain stable for several days, though we encourage you to send them back as soon as possible so we can get you your results.
