Screening and Monitoring FAQs

The TAT can vary depending on the type of test selected. In general the TATs are 3 days for most biochemical assays.

All biochemical assays, including the StepOne® Comprehensive Biochemical Profile, require a dried blood sample. For any of our genetic testing options, we can accept a variety of sample types, including: Saliva Swabs, Dried Blood Spots, Whole Blood, and Genomic DNA. Click here for all Specimen Requirements.

Detailed directions on sample collection are included in each individual sample collection kit. Additionally, a copy of those instructions can be found here.

For a correctly collected sample, the blood should completely fill each circle on the Dried Blood Spot Card. An example can be found here.
