Unilab’s out of town donor program (within the United States)
If your donor is located in a distant city:
Fill out the attached form and send it to the firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it back to 954-797-9494
Unilab will find the nearest draw facility near them.
Unilab coordinates with the patient and books the appointment.
Unilab sends the patient the test kit.
The patient arrives at the draw site with the donor test kit in hand (the patient must have a valid government ID at time of blood draw).
Once the blood is drawn, the facility will call Fed-Ex for a pickup.
Unilab then follows up with a confirmatory email that the patients’ blood was drawn and has arrived at the lab
Please note the patient must pay for the blood draw. Unilab pays for the shipping coasts.
Unilab’s international donor testing program.
If your donor is located outside the United States:
You must establish an account with Unilab.
Unilab will work with your facility and our international carriers to verify that transit times for receiving the patient blood will be acceptable. At this time, we will also verify the shipment cost.
Once verified we will ship Unilab’s donor kits to your office.
Your facility will be responsible for shipping costs.
We recommend a “fake donor” prior to shipping actual donors to work out any issues that might arise from customs holding the package.
International sites we have received blood from:
Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Bahamas, Cypress, Canada, Columbia, Georgia, Moscow, Mexico, Spain, UK, and Ukraine.
