This article is to show you the key steps in taking your Lab Me at-home test. This is NOT for CBC or CHEM14 tests. You can read about those here.

Often people are nervous when collecting their sample for the first time. However, as you will quickly see – there is no reason to feel anxious. 

It only takes 3-5 minutes on average, and it’s incredibly simple to do.

As long as you follow the instructions in your kit, your results will be accurate. If you have any concerns or doubts, our customer service team is happy to help.

Please see our FAQ for what happens if you perform the test incorrectly.
