Test Wherever, Whenever. No Rush!
When your package arrives, you’ll need to collect your sample. Depending on the specific test type, this could be a small urine, swab or tiny blood prick sample. Don’t worry! Each test comes with easy to understand instructions.
At myLAB Box, we understand that many of our first-time customers may be nervous. We’re here to help!

These may occasionally impact the speed of deliveries. But the estimated turnaround time between when you place an order and receive your test results is nearly always 2-8 days.
