What’s in Our Group B Strep Test Kit?

I often get asked the following questions – what does the kit look like, is it sent in plain packaging, what do the swabs look like, what information is contained?

So here is a an in depth look at what you’ll receive when your order a Group B Strep kit from us…

Firstly, your kit is dispatched directly from the laboratory by First Class Royal Mail delivery. The packaging is totally discreet with no mention of what is inside. It fits through your letterbox, so you don’t need to be in to receive the kit.

Inside your envelope the kit is in a carboard box to protect the GBS testing swabs.

Inside the box you will find the following:
