KIT FAQs

What sample kits do you offer?2019-02-25T18:47:04-04:00

KITS OFFERED: blood plasma, fecal (feces), urine, tissue swab, sputum (deep throat saliva and mucus), cerebrospinal fluid, prostate secretion, and breast milk.

*tissue swabs can also be used for environmental tests, such as your home, floors, outside surfaces, etc. 

Where do I get my blood drawn for a plasma sample?2019-02-25T18:41:36-04:00

Typically, we suggest that you contact a phlebotomist in your local area.

If you cannot find a participating phlebotomist in your local area, please email nseal@aperiomics.com with your city, state, and area code with the email subject line”Need a Phlebotomist Near Me”.

We can assist you by compiling a list of a few in your area based on our internal database.

Why do I need a physician in order to get this test?2019-02-20T21:47:40-04:00

In the US, it is required to have a physician to support you in order to have this test.

The physician will provide ICD-10 codes for potential insurance reimbursement as well as provide result analysis in order to diagnose and create a treatment plan to get you better.

Do I need a supporting doctor to able to order this test?2019-02-20T21:45:56-04:00

US patients require a supporting physician in order to get this test. We cannot send you a test until you have a doctor who is willing to support you by reviewing your results and creating a treatment plan post result review.

If needed, your physician can schedule a consultation with our infectious disease doctor on staff.

Do you ship kits/ serve patients internationally?2019-02-25T18:49:04-04:00

Yes.

We serve patients in most major international areas, and do this often.

 

Which sample kit should I order?2019-02-25T18:46:12-04:00

KITS OFFERED: blood plasma, fecal (feces), urine, tissue swab, sputum (deep throat saliva and mucus), cerebrospinal fluid, prostate secretion, and breast milk.

*tissue swabs can also be used for environmental tests, such as your home, floors, outside surfaces, etc. 

For most accurate results, we test from the closest source of infection(s), where you feel your symptoms. For example, if you have an upset stomach or diarrhea, we would have you do a fecal kit, or for urinary tract infections, we would suggest a urine kit, etc.

US patients require a supporting physician in order to receive the test. Typically, your physician can identify which test kit you will need.

 

Why would there be a need to test multiple samples at one time?2019-02-20T21:24:04-04:00

In some cases, if there is not a clear, single site of infection (or symptom), we will request that multiple samples be collected and tested.  In this case, we will request multiple sample to ensure the best possible results.

Is there anything to be careful of when shipping samples?2019-02-20T21:25:39-04:00

When collected as instructed, samples are rendered non-infectious and stable at ambient temperatures for up to 30 days.  The supplied shipping materials will return the sample next-day, and thus no special concerns are needed when shipping samples back to Aperiomics.

Your physician (for US patients only) and you will receive your results within 10-14 days after sample is returned to Aperiomics.

Are there any medications, probiotics, or treatment to discontinue before testing?2019-02-20T21:27:46-04:00

For us to get the best possible sample, it is typically recommended that all anti-infective treatments (antifungals, antiparasitics, antibiotics) be stopped 3 days prior to sample collection. This should be discussed with a healthcare provider. 

Probiotics should be stopped 14 days prior. All anti-infective treatments and probiotics should be listed on the requisition form, so our infectious disease doctor is aware of this when interpreting your results during the post- results physician consultation.

Do the biologicial samples have to be refrigerated or frozen?2018-11-08T14:18:22-04:00

No.  Our specialized collection kits contain a solution that renders samples non-infectious and keeps the genetic material that we need intact for up to 30 days at room temperature.  Combined with our supplied packing materials, it also makes it safe for shipping… so no need to worry.

How is the appropriate type of sample(s) for testing determined and what collection kits should be ordered?2019-02-20T21:30:07-04:00

Physicians should be able to tell patients which kit or kits they’ll need to help identify the pathogens causing your illness.  While a single kit may be needed, in some instances patients may require additional kits (blood, swab, urine, fecal, tissue or semen) to capture the pathogens at the suspected source of the infection. 

For most accurate results, we test from the closest source of infection(s), where you feel your symptoms. For example, if you have an upset stomach or diarrhea, we would have you do a fecal kit, or for urinary tract infections, we would suggest a urine kit, etc. If there are NO CLEAR SIGNS OF SYMPTOMS, we suggest a blood plasma kit.

REFUND POLICY: Refunds are only allowed within 20 days of purchase. All refunds are subject to a $75 fee.  The cost of collection kits and shipping are non-refundable. No refunds can be made after samples are received by Aperiomics, Inc.
