How long are the test kits viable?Updated a month ago

The test kits will remain viable for 2 years unopened and 1 year after the sample is actually taken from the cat.  

Concerns about temperature during shipping: 

We have shipped our test kits all over the world for several years now. Luckily, we have not noticed a higher failure rate in the summertime than in the winter. The temperature range indication on the test kit refers to long-term storage. 

It's most likely that your pet's sample will be completely fine through transit, and our team will run many quality checks while processing the sample. We will notify you by email if there is any quality issue with the sample!
