Blood Drawn at Home for Immune Testing.

I got my blood taken for the immune testing. It was a very easy process. The dr's office put it the order. Then reprosource mailed me the test tube kit pictured on the left. When I first saw all those tubes, I thought I would pass out. A nurse from exam one came to my house to draw the blood. It was easier than I thought. Each one filled up quickly and I did not faint. She took the tubes and shipped them over night to the The Rosalind Franklin lab in Illinois. They said it would take about two week to get results back. They are running the following tests RIP, TH1/TH2, NK, and CBC.


  1. That's where all my bloodwork is done! I usually get 7 - 8 tubes drawn each month. That's cool the nurse comes to you!

    And I'm glad you didn't faint.

  2. Wow every month? I assumed this was a one time test. I guess I will have to wait for the results.
    When they called me they said I could to a local lab or pay $50 to have them come to my house. I did not want to have to worry about shipping it or getting messed up in any way. I used exam one

  3. Wow, that's impressive! Here's to good results!

  4. Very impressive, I was wondering if I should so the same...Also, I hope it is ok, I emailed you a question- it is coming from lebecrose-at-aol
