Terms and Conditions:

 

As part of the services, BiosScan Lab provide various methods for purchasing laboratory tests. Our website and in-store materials provide detailed information about the tests we conduct and the corresponding Services we provide for each test, including estimated turnaround times. Turnaround times represent an approximation of the time it will take for your sample, once received by our laboratory, to undergo testing and for the test results to be made available to you. Please refer to the “Samples and Test Results” section below for more information.

It is important to note that when postal services are involved in sending a testing kit to you or returning a sample to us, we rely on our postal services provider (Royal Mail) or courier service to meet their stated delivery timeframes.

In a small percentage of cases, tests may need to be re-run or re-analysed due to the precise and sensitive nature of laboratory testing. Consequently, please consider the possibility that under such circumstances, it may take slightly longer to provide you with your results. In such cases, a refund will not be permitted.

By using our Services, you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for selecting the appropriate tests and determining whether the tests you purchase from us are suitable for your needs. If you have any doubts, we strongly advise consulting with a doctor or qualified medical professional.

Our website also outlines various methods for collecting and submitting samples, including self-testing kits, on-site testing at our designated locations, or testing at your home or office by our trained staff members. If you have purchased an on-site test or a test conducted by our staff at your location, our Services encompass sample collection and transportation to our laboratory.

The description of our Services on our website is an integral part of our agreement with you. However, if there are any inconsistencies between the description of the Services on our website and these Terms (including turnaround times), these Terms shall prevail.
