Collecting your finger prick blood sample on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday helps to ensure that the sample is promptly delivered to the Drop Bio laboratory for analysis.

Over time, blood can deteriorate in varying temperatures which can affect your results. Posting the sample early in the week helps mitigate potential shipping delays over the weekend, ensuring your sample arrives at the lab in the best possible condition and your results can be analysed as soon as possible.
