Customers often ask why they cannot post samples directly to us for testing. Unfortunately, sperm are very sensitive and do not live long outside the body. The longer sperm are outside the body the more DNA damage is induced. To prevent this happening, samples need to be flash frozen in liquid nitrogen within I hour of ejaculation. This is not possible to do at home.
We have built a network of discreet and convenient Hubs to process samples for our customers. If you live within 1 hour of an Examen Hub, you can produce your sample at home and drop off at the Hub. If you live further afield, the Hub will provide a private room for you to produce your sample. Onsite sample production is currently unavailable at our Dublin and Belfast hubs and all samples must be produced at home.
