How To Return Your PCR Test

Option 1 - DX Returns: The Best Way to Return Your PCR Sample

For fast results, we recommend using the DX Returns Method. Returns via the tracked DX courier service is the fastest and most reliable way of returning your PCR sample. This service is included in the cost of your test, there is no extra charge.

If you drop your PCR sample at an available DX site before 5pm, Monday to Friday your sample will reach our Laboratory by 9am the next day. Friday drop-offs are delivered on Saturday Morning. Your test will then be processed and you will receive your result within 24 hours of your sample arriving at the Laboratory.

DX Labels for returning your PCR Sample

Your kit may have a DX label included, simply attach this to the bottom of the PCR box and return it to your nearest available drop off location.

If your kit does not contain a DX shipping return label simply click here and complete a quick form and our team will email you your return label.

Please follow these steps when returning your kit via DX

  • Ensure you have completed your registration, and have kept your registration card safe.
  • Make note of the tracking number located on your return label below the uppermost barcode - this is a 10 digit number. There is space on your registration card to make a note of this number.
  • Drop your kit at one of the available drop-off sites - please see the list of available locations here to find your nearest drop-off point.
