Why should I use VPG’s Sample Collection Service?

Sample quality

The faster the collection, the higher the quality of the sample. Using a third-party courier means your samples may not be collected the same day that you take them. Having the flexibility and confidence to take samples throughout the day, and not have to consider missing a particular collection slot is very important, especially when it comes to sample quality. Faster collection means the highest possible quality sample can be received into our laboratories, ready for analysis. Secure, same day sample collection, coupled with next morning delivery into our laboratories – ultimately allows for more reliable results, faster diagnosis, and treatment.

Increased ownership

Using a single, dedicated collection service that ensures traceability and a secure chain of custody is maintained will give you peace of mind that your samples are in safe hands. With an end-to-end service, our reliable private collection team can complete same day collection out of hours, achieve fast overnight transportation, and ensure samples are securely received into our laboratories the following morning.

Take greater control of your sample collection with VPG. If you have any questions regarding our collection service or if you have any other query, please get in touch here.
