What to Expect Throughout the Process
Before the test:
You’ll receive a personalized instructions email from Rupa with everything you need to know about what kind of blood sample is needed and how to prepare for your test before your kit ships!
If your test requires a blood draw, your instructions e-mail will include local phlebotomy options for you to call and schedule an appointment.
Next you’ll receive the test kit in the mail and review its contents. You’ll bring the entire test kit and requisition form with you to the blood draw.
