    DUTCH tests are . The samples must be collected at specific times of the day/cycle. This means that you collect your samples at home. Once you have ordered your test, I will arrange delivery of everything you need for collection of samples and returning them to the lab.

    Your samples are sent directly to Precision Analytical for analysis. When I have received your report (usually 14 working days later), I will arrange an in person or online appointment with you to go through the results in detail and provide you with a plan to support you.
