Click the “Complete Questionnaire” button to fill out your first questionnaire. This questionnaire must be completed in order for your blood spot test to be processed.
This questionnaire will be completed at the time of your first blood spot test and the second one during your follow-up re-test three months later. It should take about 15-20 minutes and will ask questions about health history, recent health, medications, current supplementation and diet, and lifestyle habits. Having your supplement bottles available for reference will be useful for this questionnaire.
Log in to the questionnaire using your “First Name” as you entered it when registering for your account.
Complete your blood spot test, and mail it in.
Remember to write your Participant ID, Date of Birth and Date of Collection on the back of your blood spot card. Mail it back as soon as possible, as the samples for the Omega-3 Index test will expire if received more than 21 days after collection.
