What these terms cover. These are the terms and conditions on which we supply the testing services you have ordered.
Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
Are you a business customer or a consumer? In some areas you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a business or consumer. You are a consumer if you are an individual buying testing services from us wholly or mainly for your personal use (not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession). If you are a consumer we are under a legal duty to supply services that are in conformity with the contract we have entered into with you.
If you are a business customer:
this is our entire agreement with you. These terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you will have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in these terms.
purchasing testing services for the benefit of your employees:
You must not submit any samples on behalf of your employees.
Your employees must submit their own samples.
The employees using the tests must be over the age of 18.
We will not provide any test results to you without the consent of the person who has taken the test.
Important Information About Our Testing Services
If you have any health or medical concerns you must consult with a registered medical practitioner in respect of those.
The purpose of our testing services is to provide you with a convenient, quick and confidential means of being tested for whether you are more likely to have a given allergy (in the case of allergy testing) and whether you have a particular condition (in the case of our Covid-19 tests). However, our test results are indicative and are not intended as medical advice of any kind, and should not be or considered as a diagnosis or used as a basis on which to take medication, without first consulting a registered medical practitioner.
It is essential that anyone considering changing their diet must consult a registered medical practitioner in the first instance.
All possible diagnoses generated by our tests must be discussed and confirmed with a registered medical practitioner.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or the emergency services immediately.
Please note that items listed within a specific test are subject to change from time to time. Please consult our website or contact us if you wish to confirm whether a specific item is included within a particular test.
100% accuracy of all test results cannot be guaranteed. However, our laboratory partners work to high industry standards and procedures at all times.
Our staff will not provide medical advice given that they are generally not medically qualified. Any advice given by our staff should therefore not be construed as medical advice or any diagnosis.

Our Contract With You
How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. Please note that you must be over the age of 18 to purchase testing services from us.
If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the service. This might be because the testing kit required as part of the testing service you have ordered is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the service or because we are unable to meet a deadline you have specified.
Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
Your Rights to Make Changes
If you wish to make a change to the service you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the service, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
Our Rights to Make Changes
We may change the service to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. These changes will not affect your use of the service. We will notify you if this happens.
Providing the Services
When we refer to a “sample” in these terms, we mean the hair, blood or tissue sample that is required from any individual for the testing service requested by and in respect of that individual.
If a physical testing kit is required to be delivered to you to enable you to provide your sample as part of the testing service you have ordered:
the costs of delivery of that kit will be included in the overall price of the service displayed to you on our website;
we will let you know during the order process when we aim to provide the kit to you;
if no one is available at your address to take delivery of the kit and it cannot be posted through your letterbox, we (or our courier) will leave you a note informing you of how to re-arrange delivery or collect the kit from a local depot;
if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect the kit from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
If we await your sample in order to be able to provide the testing service (and no physical testing kit is required to be delivered to you):
we will provide you with a link to enable you to complete your sample submission form;
you are responsible for the postage costs incurred in sending your sample to us;
your sample must be sent to the address notified to you. We recommend utilising a traceable delivery service such as a recorded or signed-for delivery method.
Any samples you provide to us must be your own. However, if you are a business customer purchasing testing services for use by your employees, your employees must submit their own samples. All samples must be sent to the address we notify to you on the same day that the sample is collected. We will not return any samples.
When we will provide your test results. We will let you know during the order process how long we expect it to take us to provide your test results following receipt of your sample. We will notify you when your test results are ready via email to the email address you give us and via SMS text message to the number you give us. If your test has been purchased by your employer, we will only provide your test results to your employer with your consent.
Postponing your test. If you have paid for your test but you wish to postpone it i.e. you wish to take the test at a later date, you may do so provided that you contact us to let us know and the test is taken within 12 months of the date you submitted your order to us.
We are not responsible for delays outside our reasonable control. If our supply of the service is delayed by an event outside our reasonable control then we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to let you know and we will take reasonable steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.
What will happen if you do not give us information we need from you. We may need certain information so that we can supply the service to you, for example, your sample and your sample submission form. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the service on our website. If you do not:
give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information; or
you supply us with a sample which has not been collected in accordance with the user instructions provided,
we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. If we cannot test your sample because it was collected incorrectly, we may agree to test a further sample but you will be responsible for our reasonable costs associated with this.
We will not be responsible for supplying the services late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it or not supplying us with a correctly taken sample.
Your Rights to End the Contract
If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the testing kit replaced or the testing service re‑performed or to get some or all of your money back).
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you wish to end a contract for a reason set out at clauses 8.2.1 to 8.2.4 (below), the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
we have told you about an upcoming change to the service or these terms which you do not agree to;
we have told you about an error in the price or description of the service you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
there is a risk that supply of the service may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most things bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights are contained with the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply:
if you have already received your test results, even if the cancellation period is still running;
to testing kits which are sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed, opened, damaged or tampered with after you receive them.
How long do consumers have to change their minds? You have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order to change your mind. However, once we have provided you with your test results you cannot change your mind, even if the 14 day cancellation period is still running. If you cancel after we have started testing your sample, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
How to End the Contract With Us
To end the contract with us, please let us know using the contact details above.
Returning sealed, undamaged and unopened testing kits after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after the testing kit has been dispatched to you or you have received it, you must return it to us sealed, undamaged and unopened. You must post the testing kit back to the address we give you for that purpose. Please contact us to arrange the return. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the kit within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
When we will bear the costs of return. We will bear the costs of return and give you a Freepost address to use:
if the testing kit or the testing service is faulty or misdescribed; or
if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the service or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our reasonable control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
How we will refund you. Provided that you return the test kit to us at your own cost, we will issue a refund minus £20.00 cost of the kit and admin fee. Your right to change your mind and receive a refund ceases automatically once you have either unsealed or otherwise used the test kit, or a period greater than 14 days has elapsed since you received the test kit. Refunds will be processed within 7-10 working days of your kit being returned. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you by the method you used for payment. However, we may reduce your refund if we find that the returned testing kit is damaged, opened, unsealed or has been otherwise tampered with.
When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then if you are returning a testing kit, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the kit back from you. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
Day 2 & 8 Refunds. Where a test kit is broken, is not delivered or gives an inconclusive or invalid test result, in line with the Department of Health and Social Care guidelines, we will offer a replacement test and send this to you at our expense by next working day courier service. DHSC regulations restrict any refunds being made as this may be in breach of the obligation of an individual to take the test in accordance with their testing package.
Rapid Antigen Test Refunds Given the nature of the product, there are no refunds for sales of rapid antigen test kits.
Replacement kits. If you have not followed the provided instructions and require a replacement kit to be provided there will be a charge of £25 per covid-19 test kit or £10 per non-covid blood collection kit. Payment is required prior to the dispatch of any replacement kit.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
