Test procedure (saline gargle)
Once your order is placed, we send the sampling kit directly to your house with express delivery via our logistics partner, UPS Healthcare. This takes approx. 24 hours.
Once the sampling kit has reached you, follow a few simple steps to activate it and input the personal information of the person being tested. An instruction manual is included in German with the kit.
Next, take your sample by briefly gargling the saline solution provided and spitting out the liquid into the sample tube.
After taking your sample, seal the sample tube and pack it up to send back. Everything you need is on hand in the sampling kit. You can order the collection either online or by phone. Please store your sample in the fridge until then.
As soon as your results are available, you’ll receive a text and an email with a link and password to access your results report.
