Insured return postage is included with the INTEST.pro test Shipping information for the INTEST.pro intestinal flora test
The shipping of the INTEST.pro test kit outside of Germany and the return of your sample to our BIOMES laboratory in Germany is carried out by UPS.
Order your INTEST.pro intestinal flora test from our online shop. You will receive an order confirmation by email. You can find more information on the delivery costs below.
Our shipping partner (DHL or UPS) will deliver your INTEST.pro test to your preferred address. You can track the delivery using the tracking number that you should also have received by email.
If you are not at home when delivery is attempted, the test kit will be sent to your nearest UPS collection point. Unfortunately, it is common for no notification card to be left in your letterbox. Please use your tracking number on the UPS website to check where your package has been left.
Once you have received the INTEST.pro kit, take your sample from some used toilet paper. For further information on how to do this, take a look at the instructions in the test kit. You can also watch our video.
Return your sample
Activate your sample. To do this, follow all the steps in your test instructions and go to your login area online. Choose between the two UPS shipping options for returning your sample to our BIOMES laboratory. There are no additional costs for the return postage!
Please follow the enclosed instructions, close the sample container properly and pack it in the envelope provided.
- Download the return label, print it out on a printer and stick it onto the foil envelope. Take the envelope to your nearest UPS drop-off point.
- Important: Some countries also require customs documents in printed format.
- If there is a problem with the forms or you have any other questions, please contact the BIOMES Customer Service team: firstname.lastname@example.org
- If there is not a UPS drop-off point near you, you can also order UPS collection. A UPS employee will then collect the sample from the address of your choice. Collection occurs within 3 working days. It is unfortunately not possible to arrange a shorter collection window. This is not important for the sample, as the DNA of the bacteria will be preserved and does not require special storage.
- If you are not home when UPS arrives, the UPS employee will leave a return label in your letterbox. Please stick this onto the foil envelope and take the package to your nearest UPS drop-off point.
- If no notification card has been left in your letterbox, please use your tracking number on the UPS website and contact UPS to arrange a new collection date.
Stay up to date and track your sample’s return to our BIOMES laboratory. You can track your parcel at any time on the UPS website.
