Before Taking A CYREX Test

While Cyrex is unable to provide an exhaustive list of medications due to the interactive complexities and varieties of medications and patient circumstances, the following has been noted:

a. Immunosuppressant and corticosteroid drugs can reduce antibody production and cause false negative results.
b. Limited assessments on the effects of aspirin, acetaminophen, and antipsychotics on Arrays 1-4 have been performed. No noticeable effects were observed.

PLEASE DO NOT STOP ANY MEDICATION UNLESS YOUR DOCTOR AUTHORISES IT.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE TEST INSTRUCTIONS THAT WILL COME WITH THE TEST

Specimen requirements

Blood test that requires a blood sample. The blood sample will need to be centrifuged.

You can attend one of two laboratories in London to have the sample taken or you will need to arrange for a blood sample to be collected by a nurse at your G.P. service or at a private clinic or hospital. Any fee for this service is not included in with the test fee.

Returning your sample

You will need to send your sample back to the lab via a next day postal service – If you are in the UK, Royal mail offer a suitable next day service. If you are outside of the UK then please check with your postal service for options. The cost of the test does not cover the return postage.

Please note that samples should only be posted on Monday – Thursday so that they do not arrive over the weekend when the lab is closed.
