Does my kit have an expiration date?

Yes it does! Find out how to check your testing kit's expiration date.

Does my test kit expire? If yes, why? 

Yes. Your blood testing kits can expire, which is why we recommend using your kit within three months of purchase.

The blood collection tubes contain a gel that stabilises your blood to keep it safe for testing during transportation to our partnered lab. Each blood tube looks slightly different; the Yellow Blood Collecting Tube has a clearly visible gel at the bottom of the tube.  Similarly, the Purple Blood Collecting Tube contains the same gel on the inside of the tube, it's just harder to see! 

How do I check the expiration date? 

To check the expiration date of your blood collection tube, look for a date printed on the side of the blood collection tube.
