Sending your test kit back


Returning your test kit back

We provide a Royal Mail Tracked 24 returns label for returning your COVID samples back to our lab in Manchester.


Royal Mail Priority Box

If you use this returns label, it is essential that you use a Royal Mail Priority Post Box when returning your sample.


Sundays & Public Holidays

Please note: Royal Mail does not deliver any samples to our lab on a Sunday or Bank Holiday. If you are travelling on a Tuesday or Wednesday to a country that requires a test to be taken 72 hours prior to travel, please consider using a guaranteed service to return your sample to us as Royal Mail is not a suitable option for you.


Sample back to our lab

In each test kit there is a Royal Mail Tracked 24 pre-paid postage bag for you to send your sample back to our lab.


Email confirmation

You will receive an email confirmation once your sample has arrived in our lab and the process has started.


Results within 24-36 hours

Results will be sent out within 24-36 hours of scanning it into our system.


Royal Mail Priority Postboxes

Providing your sample has been posted in one of the clearly identified Royal Mail Priority Postboxes, as instructed, Royal Mail aims to deliver your sample to our lab in the next day.

Note: to track your test please make a note of your tracking number, as we do not keep a record of this.
