Patients: Request Kits

If you would like to have your doctor run our testing for you, simple click on the button below and complete the simple form.  We will send you a collection kit and some information to take to your doctor.  We will give you a call once your request is received to confirm your order and answer any questions.  Payment is made by check or credit card when you submit your sample for testing.



Why would there be a need to test multiple samples at one time?2018-11-08T14:11:16+00:00

In some cases, if there is not a clear, single site of infection, we will request that multiple samples be collected and tested.  We cannot identify the microorganism(s) causing infection unless it is physically collected in the samples.  Thus, we will request multiple sample to ensure the best possible results.

Is there anything to be careful of when shipping samples?2018-11-08T14:12:32+00:00

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

Are there any medications, probiotics, or treatment to discontinue before testing?2018-11-08T14:16:28+00:00

For us to get the best possible sample, it is typically recommended that all anti-infective treatments 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.

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

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?2018-11-08T14:20:59+00:00

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.  We won’t be able to give the best information if the microbes causing the issue aren’t collected in the kit!
