What are the InsideTracker Basic Home Kit and Advanced Home Kit?

InsideTracker's Basic and Advanced Home Kits enable our customers to collect their own blood samples in the comfort of their own homes. The Basic Home Kit is available anywhere in the US. Using a blood collection cassette, you nick your finger, collect 3-4 drops of blood, then mail the sample to us. From just a few drops of blood, you receive personalized blood analysis and sophisticated recommendations for 5 essential biomarkers. Just collect the sample, seal it in the prepaid mailer, and drop it in any mailbox. For more information about the InsideTracker Basic Home Kit, visit the Home Kit page.

Available worldwide (except New York), the Advanced Home Kit is an exciting new InsideTracker service. Using a blood spot collection card, you nick your finger in the comfort of you own home and collect a sample of several drops of blood. The Advanced Home Kit includes a prepaid 2-day UPS return shipping envelope to make it easy for you to return the sample to us. From just a small blood sample, you receive personalized blood analysis and sophisticated recommendations for 7 biomarkers key to overall well-being and performance, including cortisol, CRP, and vitamin D. Just collect your sample, seal it in the prepaid* shipping pouch, and return via UPS. For more information about the InsideTracker Advanced Home Kit, visit the Home Kit page.
