Self-Collection Test Shipped to Home (Scroll down page to get to this section)

This option allows for ordering a kit to be shipped to your home. After self-collection with easy-to-follow instructions, the kit is returned to a laboratory free of charge via FedEx. You must provide an email address to receive the test result. Once ordered, the kit arrives in 2 days (depending on current demand). The kit is good for 6 months. Once the sample has been collected, it must be packaged in the prepaid FedEx shipping envelope (according to directions) and returned to a FedEx collection site within 24 hours. 

Please note that due to the current spike in demand, a limited quantity will be available each day through January. If the ordering site says the limit has been reached, please check back again the following day for availability. Thank you for your patience.
