The test details

How the test works

CLIA certified lab

Our test kits involve an analysis of a capillary blood sample at a CLIA certified and CAP accredited high complexity laboratory.

The collection process

The at-home collection process and supporting materials were designed to ensure that capillary blood samples would satisfy clinical testing standards. This includes provision of necessary phlebotomy equipment (such as sterile lancets and a collection container), a centrifuge, and a temperature sensor to ensure samples are not subjected to extreme temperatures between collection and laboratory analysis.

Result consultations

Our test kits are not intended for standalone diagnosis of any medical condition. It is your responsibility to arrange with your healthcare provider for consultation and interpretation of the test results. You can consult with a Ro-affiliated provider for no extra cost. A consultation with a Ro-affiliated provider can help put your results in perspective. Scheduling is easy, and you can connect within a few business days.
