We will ship products via the shipping method of our choice. Each Test Kit that is despatched by Bioscreen contains the details of the user that ordered the Test Kit and is required to provide the sample. This is on the postage label attached to the outside of the Test Kit. Once you send a sample back to us, you consent to us conducting Bioscreen testing on the sample as agreed at the time of payment. If you submit a Bioscreen request for or on behalf of another person, you consent to us conducting Bioscreen testing on the sample.
