How To Take The CBC Test From Lab Me

The CBC at-home blood test from Lab Me is a pioneering product in the world of direct-to-consumer health.  Taking this test should be done carefully and patiently to avoid any errors.

We HIGHLY recommend you take a photo of your collected sample so that it helps us, and help you if an error occurs.

Please note: that we do not include the thermal pack in all CBC test kits anymore as our technology has improved and it is no longer required.

How Does It Differ From Other Lab Me Tests?

We use a micro-capillary system rather than a cassette for blood collection.  Both are finger prick and as accurate as going to the lab and having blood drawn from your vein

How To Perform - What if I Mess It Up?

Once we get the order processed - WATCH THE video instructions CAREFULLY ABOVE on how to perform. 

If for some reason you do the test incorrectly, you will be asked to pay for shipping and handling of a new test kit + shipping ($45 dollars/FedEx overnight).  You won't be charged the full cost of the test.

There are NO refunds of any type on this test.

That being said we send a couple of micro-tubes for collection - just in case. ;)

DO NOT do it on a Friday or Saturday - as the lab is closed on the weekend!  And the return sending is for overnight delivery.

Some advice from other users:

"Congrats on being a pioneer in US Health! My advice is to go slow, don't rush.  It's easier than it seems at first.  I don't like blood and I did fine.  So this is probably the easiest CBC you'll ever do."

"It's easy, just don't overthink it.  Get it done and ship it back immediately. The results are very cool, it graphs it over time so you can track changes.  Also, you can access it anywhere on mobile so it's helpful to show your Doctor." -Katy F.

"It's simple, don't worry - the collection tubes do a fantastic job!  Also, be patient - both towards yourself and the company.  They are doing some groundbreaking stuff and as the first company to do it - give them some sliding room.  They are good with speed, just not amazon prime - with speed." -Morgan D.

"No waiting rooms.  No needle.  No need to go to MD for a prescription. So affordable compared to a lab and appointments.  So my advice to new users is - don't take it for granted! :) It's amazing you can test your CBC from home.  Just take your time with it.  Watch the instructions a few times.  It is easier than you will think." -Shirley A.

When Will It Be Delivered?

Please give us 3-5 days to process this order/test kit.

In addition, as stated this test is highly specific and also a new product - so we need to prepare it properly.  It will NOT come in a branded Lab Me box as we are printing new ones for this test kit specifically.  We use multiple labs - so it will most likely be in a box from one of our partner labs.

Tracking is not provided automatically.  Our customer care team will email you the tracking number once it has been shipped.

  • We use FEDEX for the CBC test.  

  • To you, it is 2-3 days, but sending back is overnight.  

  • You will need to send back using FEDEX (all pre-paid).

  • Don't do it on a Friday or Saturday - as the lab is closed on the weekend!  

We will manually send you the tracking number as this is a very new product and not fully automated as of yet.  We appreciate your patience.

What Happens After I Take The Test?

After you perform your sample it will be analyzed by our lab - and then we will review and aggregate your data into your dashboard.
