STI sending


#1

Hi, I took my STI test today and sent it away however it probably won’t reach the lab until Tuesday and today is Saturday. I’m scared of my samples maybe being frozen as it is so cold and that it could affect the results. Am I allowed to order another test?

Hello @Sharlett

It should not be a problem if your samples are exposed to the cold in the post. The lab is not looking for live organisms - just their DNA or antibodies.

Many thanks
