Request for Express Delivery Service

  • Express delivery is a service to deliver specimens to the laboratory by both air and land.
    Therefore, there may be cases where the test results cannot be delivered back within expected days of express delivery due to bad weather, disasters, social issues, or other reasons.
  • If test results cannot be returned within 3 days counting from the date of blood collection as day 0, we will refund only the express delivery fee. The clinic will pay the bank transfer fee. However, we will not be able to cancel the test or refund the testing fee.
  • We may decline same-day express delivery even if you apply in advance.
  • Even just before shipping of specimens, we will notify you and refund your money as soon as we determine that the results will not return within the expected days of express delivery due to cancelled flights or other reasons.
