How to order your Test - 4 Simple Steps

Step 1 - Order Your Test

We've made our ordering your Allergy & Intolerance test really easy, it's simply a matter of choosing which test is right for you then ordering your test securely online.

We accept payment by PayPal (even if you don't have a PayPal account) or you can pay by cheque or bank transfer. For international orders the best payment option is through TransferWise. Just select your prefered payment option at checkout.   


Step 2 - Print & Complete the Form

Download & Print the Test-Application-Form   

This applies for email and postal orders. Forms are not posted automatically. If you have ordered 2 or more tests, please print the form for each person (same order number - note on back) 

Unable to print? If you require the Test-Application-Form to be send by post, please let us know at check-out in the 'Order Comments' box: e.g. post test form

Shortly after ordering your test online you will receive an e-mail from us, which will also contain a link to download the 'Test-Application-Form'.

Please PRINT and COMPLETE the FORM fully, in CAPITAL LETTERS and in your own handwriting. Don't forget to sign and date it.


Step 3 - Provide a Hair Sample

Cut a small sample of hair from your head (20-50 strands - approximately 1-3cm long).

Attach to Form: on the area provided ( top left) on the Test Application Form. Use clear tape or place in a small plastic bag or wrap in cling-film.

Hair condition: Please make sure that your hair is clean and no hair care products (gel, haispray) have been used. It doesn't matter if the hair has been previously coloured or permed.

If few or no hair is available you can send us finger-nail clippings. For babies you can use a cotton bud to send us a saliva swab from the mouth. For hygiene reason please place nail-clippings or saliva swab in plastic bag or cling film.


Step 4 - Post the Test Application Form and Hair Sample

Put the completed Test Application Form and hair sample in a standard sized envelope and post it to us at:

Allergy Link
Tripenhad Road
SA17 5RS
United Kingdom

1st class postage is advised (2nd class can sometimes times take 3-5 days). You don't have to send by recorded delivery unless you prefer to do so. Please make sure you put enough postage on the letter. A4 envelopes or additional thickness - when sending additional sample - will be charged as large letter.


COVID-19 precaution

Letters arriving with your test-form & hair-sample will stay in 'quarantine' for 2-3 days before being opened.  Any urgent testing can be processed immediately thereafter.

Please write your Order Number (e.g. #12345) or Post Code on the envelope, so we can send you an confirmation email that we have received your test-form letter.
