How long does it take to get home blood test results?
For the majority of our finger prick blood tests, results will be available within 2 working days from receipt of your sample at our lab.
Below is an example of the timings from when you post your sample to when you receive your results:
- Monday - take your blood sample and post it in a priority post box using our Tracked 24 return envelope.
- Tuesday - sample will arrive at our UKAS accredited lab - this part is out of our control as it's dependent on Royal Mail's service; plus the time you posted your sample. If your sample isn't collected until the evening collection on the day you posted it, then the sample won't arrive at our lab until the evening of the following day.
- Wednesday - blood sample analysed, results collated and reviewed by our medical team and comments made.
- Thursday - results available on your health dashboard.
There are some tests that take longer to analyse, such as our Omega 6:3 ratio test and our Ultimate test which contains the Omega 6:3 ratio. These tests have a 10 working day turnaround time once the sample is received by our lab.
