This article outlines the tips and tricks for running a successful first pooled testing day.
Make sure your consents have been collected. This is a crucial part of your first test day! Read more about gathering consents here.
Be sure to pack the tubes into as few boxes as possible. Each box holds up to 15 tubes. And, don’t forget to ship your packages before the FedEx pick-up deadline! You can either arrange a pickup or drop off your packages at a FedEx drop box or store. Give yourself ample time the first time you do this and be sure to call ahead; most FedEx locations are prepared to receive these shipments but a few are not.
After shipping your packages, be sure to provide tracking information on the End of Test Day form. This ensures that we know when your tubes arrive at the lab. Filling out this form allows us to troubleshoot package delays and allow us key information to keep you up to date on your results.
