Sample collection kits
TDL's sample collection kits – the TDL TinyTM capillary blood and TDL Self-Collect sample kits – cover a wide range of diagnostic and screening tests. Blood, stool, urine, swabs, in various combinations, enable patients’ samples to be collected safely at home and sent to the laboratory for testing.
These sample collection kits are not at-home test kits. TDL kits facilitate samples to be collected at home and returned to the laboratory for testing using Royal Mail Tracked 24 postal service.
All TDL Self-Collect samples are returned to accredited TDL laboratories who undertake the required testing. Results are returned directly to the healthcare organisation, doctor or managing healthcare professional, not to the patient.
Our UKCA-marked kits are manufactured using high quality components and assembled within the UK, specifically using a quality system for medical device manufacture (ISO13485:2016). Each kit contains the materials required for either sample self-collection or collection by a health/social care professional.
