Frequently Asked Questions
The phlebotomist comes to me? How does that work?
Yes! We send a certified phlebotomist who will draw your blood in your home or office — whichever is convenient for you. They will ensure that the area is sterile to protect both your safety and the sample’s quality.
When you register your Kit online, we’ll ask you to tell us where you’d like to do the draw. A phlebotomist will reach out to you to schedule the appointment. The only thing you need to bring to the appointment is your Kit. The phlebotomist will use the vials in the Kit to store your sample. When the appointment is over, usually in about fifteen minutes, the phlebotomist will take the Kit and FedEx it, under temperature control, directly to our testing and storage facility.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my blood draw?
You can cancel or reschedule your appointment at any time by calling your phlebotomist at the number they used to schedule your appointment. There is a $100 fee for canceling or rescheduling within 24 hours of your originally scheduled appointment.
How does my sample get to the lab?
The phlebotomist assigned to draw your blood will FedEx it directly to our facility as soon as the draw is complete. All shipments are overnight and temperature-regulated to ensure that your sample maintains a high quality.
Am I too old? Is it too late for me to store and still benefit?
Since your cells are always aging, it’s always better to store earlier. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s too late if you’re older. Anyone who plans to live at least another ten healthy years has the potential to benefit from personal biobanking.
How do I prepare for my blood draw?
If possible, please fast for at least 12 hours before your blood draw. You can drink water, black coffee, or tea. If you’re unable to fast, just let us know.
Other than fasting, there’s nothing you need to do to prepare. Try to get a good night’s sleep the night before. The amount of blood drawn is quite small, so fainting, lightheadedness, and nausea are unlikely, but let your phlebotomist know if you’ve had issues with these in the past.
How do I know my sample is stored safely?
Our bioprocessing laboratory and storage facility is FDA registered and CLIA certified, ensuring proper handling and secure storage of your biological samples for years to come. Temperature regulated storage devices (freezers and liquid nitrogen dewars) are individually alarmed, monitored around the clock, and backed up by onsite electrical generators. Our facility houses millions of samples and is trusted by the National Institutes of Health, as well as the largest pharmaceutical companies in the United States.
