Do I have to pay for postage?
Specimens may be shipped Monday through Thursday.

Before shipping, be sure that all the samples and the Test Request Form are labeled and completely filled out including payment.

All test tubes should be placed into the bubble bags (provided) and placed inside the test kit box after completing all required breath specimens. The box should be mailed back to the laboratory with the prepaid postage (included) within two days of completion of the test.

Locate the FedEx Clinical Pak mailer. Fill in your name and address on the shipping label attached to the outside of mailer. Place the kit box into FedEx Clinical Pak. Remove strip to reveal sticky film and press both sides of mailer together to seal the pouch.

Call FedEx to schedule a pick-up. Dial 1-800-238-5355. When the automated greeting begins say “Rep”. When asked if you are shipping a package say “Yes”. A live person will then answer to help schedule your pickup. Let them know you are shipping using a Billable Stamp or take to a FedEx shipping center.
Can I drop the kit off at a FedEx location?
Yes, please follow the packing and shipping instructions provided with the test kit.
I accidentally threw out the test kit box, can I use another one to ship?
Yes, use any clean small box.
I sealed the bag but forgot to put the paperwork in it can I reopen it?
Yes, just tape it reclosed.
Can I ship my sample on Friday?
No, ship specimens to the lab only Monday – Thursday. The box should be mailed back to the laboratory with the prepaid postage (included) within two days of completion of the test.
My test kit did not have a requisition form, what do I do?
Unless you already received the test requisition in your private portal, you should email or call our office (at info@fortitudefunctionalnutrition.com or 720-580-2078) for a Test Requisition Form.
Do I have to stop medication or supplements to take the test?
No please do not stop any of your medications before collecting your sample. But, be well hydrated before your blood draw. Immunosuppressive drugs such as oral or intranasal corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone, beclomethasone, fluticasone, triamcinolone) and topical cortisone suspensions and creams, in addition to immune modulating drugs, may affect test results for antibody assessment.
Do I have to stop eating certain foods before taking the test?
It is suggested that you maintain your usual dietary habits and consume a variety of foods when possible within a couple weeks prior to blood collection, unless advised otherwise by your healthcare practitioner. Avoid eating foods that may have potentially resulted in a previous adverse reaction and/or anaphylaxis, as secondary exposure may prove fatal.
