How do I take a hair sample?
  • We only require a few samples for our tests, 3 to 4 strands if the hair is longer than an Inch long.
  • We test any body hair.
  • Ideally, we prefer samples to include the Hair Root, however we understand it can be painful for many people. If cutting the hair, please ensure you cut as close to the root as possible.
  • Hair Dye does not affect our testing.
  • Once the hair strands have been collected, please place the strands into a small self-sealing bag, ensuring that the hair remains dry and secure during transit.
How much hair do I have to provide?

Only a small amount – 3 to 4 individual strands of hair. We do not require large clumps of hair.

My client's hair is very short, can I still complete the tests?

The hair sample does not have to be from the head; we can test hair from any part of the body including leg, arm or chest.

My client's hair is dyed, will this affect the result?

No, the test is completed on the composition of the hair sample so hair colouring will have no effect on the result.

Will medication affect test results in anyway?

Unfortunately as there is a large variety in medication it may affect your samples. We would recommend you seek advice from your doctor, or a member of our dedicated Customer Services team who are available on LiveChat 24 hours a day, Monday-Friday.

Can you test for coeliac disease?

We do not test for coeliac disease, however we can test for a gluten intolerance. If you suspect you may have coeliac disease we strongly recommend you seek advice from your GP.

Can I find out if I have coeliac disease with one of your tests?

A reaction to gluten or wheat in our tests does NOT show the presence of coeliac disease. In order to test for coeliac disease you should speak to your GP. The blood testing usually carried out is total IgA and IgA tissue transglutaminase antibody (tTG).

Blood Sample Testing

How do I take my blood sample?

Your sample instructions are found with your kit. However, click here to read instruction to help you with your blood spot testing.

How long should I leave a blood sample to dry for?

To ensure your results are accurate, your blood sample needs to be completely dry before packaging. If stored in a cool, dry place, it will be ready to be folded after approximately 5 hours. We do not recommend speeding the drying process through any other means.

Does it hurt to take a blood test?

We provide you with two lancets, which are designed to give you a very small prick to start the blood flow. It’s exactly the same as a pin prick and if administered correctly, will not hurt.

What should I do if my client's blood clots too quickly?

We recommend you prick your middle or index finger after a brief walk, and following running your hand under a hot tap. If the blood still clots, you can start to massage your finger from your palm of your hand downwards to stimulate more blood onto the card.

What happens if all five spots aren't filled?

Click on the LiveChat button on our website (open Monday to Friday, 24 hours a day) and we will arrange for new lancets and a new card to be sent immediately. This will cause a delay in your testing process so we recommend following the instructions carefully the first time you test.

Can you complete the test on animals?

Unfortunately, we cannot carry out our blood tests on animals.

Can you take the blood test if you have a blood born disease like HIV or hepatitis?

Unfortunately we cannot accept blood samples that have any viruses.

Can the blood test be carried out if you're pregnant?

For accuracy, we would not recommend a blood test as the results may be varied due to the natural changes your body will be going through. For complete accuracy, we would suggest waiting until after child birth.

Will medication affect the test results in anyway?

Unfortunately as there is a large variety in medication it may affect your samples. We would recommend you seek advice from your doctor, or a member of our dedicated Customer Services team who are available on LiveChat 24 hours a day, Monday-Friday
