Lab in an Envelope Training Video

Watch this quick and easy video illustrates how to properly use the your blood collection kit.







Lab-in-an-Envelope is a cost-effective alternative for specimen collection when onsite phlebotomy is not an option.  The Lab-in-an-Envelope program can extend select health screening tests to remote or widely dispersed populations with little or no convenient access to phlebotomy.

Lab-in-an-Envelope used dried blood spot specimens, a method widely used for screening since the early 1960's, when Dr. Robert Guthrie used this technology to measure phenylalanine for the detection of phenylketonuria in newborns.(1.). Each Lab-in-an-Envelope kit contains all the items required to collect, prepare, and mail the dried blood specimen to the laboratory via US mail.

The dried blood spot technology test menu includes total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, glucose, hemoglobin A1c, cotinine and others.

Please call 888-522-4452 for more information on how Lab-in-an-Envelope can help bring convenience and value to your wellness initiatives.
