TDL TINIES: Sample self-collection 

The demand for an increased range of Sexual Health and other Screening tests using remote testing/self-taken small volume blood samples (home collection) and postal pathology has been developed using TDL TINIES


TDL TINIES (packs with instructions) can be fulfilled by TDL and sent directly to the patient (by arrangement) or supplied directly to doctors or healthcare companies.  Not all screening tests are suitable to be taken as a TDL TINY sample.  IMPORTANT: This is not point of care testing. All testing is undertaken in the laboratory.  Test results from postal samples are always returned directly to the healthcare company or doctor, not to the patient.

Up to four tests can be taken from one TINY sample:
