Sample aquisition & shipment

The Omega-3 Index is determined in erythrocytes. We need ca. 2 ml blood, anticoagulated with EDTA, as for a blood count. Please do not use other anticoagulants, since they influence the results. Please do not freeze.

Please send the tube in a padded envelope via fast delivery (including day of sample taking, max: 4 days !) to:
Omegametrix GmbH
Am Klopferspitz 19
82152 Martinsried


Please send blood on the day of sampling. Please do not forget to provide us with patient data, including the address.

We determine the Omega-3 Index using a standardised procedure, subjected to daily quality assessment. Omegametrix owns and runs one of three reference laboratories for determination of the Omega-3 Index. Within a few days, you will receive the results per mail. Alternatively, a internet-based reporting system can be used upon prior notice. Patients can be informed in a comprehensible way.
