No physical products such as test kits or similar are shipped to consumers for sustainability reasons. The EU consumer sends this submission form together with his sample material to Medicross in Germany to the following address:

Consumers from Switzerland and Liechtenstein and outside the EU to the following address:
4.2. The effort as well as the costs around the shipment of the sample material to Medicross are borne by the consumer.

4.4. When analyzing hair samples and interpreting the results, many special features must be taken into account compared to the analysis of other biological materials, due to the type (solid) and heterogeneity of the matrix, stability of analytes and possible influences during sample preparation. As the collection of a hair sample is non-invasive, it does not need to be taken by a doctor or healthcare professional.

4.9. A suitable form must be chosen for storage and shipping, such as filter paper as the primary packaging material in an envelope.
4.10. Hair samples must be properly transported at normal room temperature, dry and protected from light, and stored before or after testing. Cooling or freezing should be avoided to protect the material from moisture. Moisture and crystal formation can lead to decomposition of analytes and matrix.
