2) Schedule your blood draw
Receive a kit in the mail, which will include all materials needed. It will also include instructions for how to make an appointment with an ACS lab partner at a location that is convenient for you.
3) Get your blood drawn
You will need your collection kit at the time of your appointment. A medical professional will draw 30ml (about 2 tablespoons) of blood. This is similar to the amount drawn during a routine doctor’s visit. The medical professional will also collect your physical measurements (your height, weight, waist, and blood pressure).
4) Take a brief survey
Within 24 hours after your blood draw, take a brief survey on the portal. This survey will ask about things like what medications you’re taking and when you had your last meal before giving blood.
5) Redeem your $40 e-gift card
Once we receive your blood sample and process your survey, we’ll send instructions on how to redeem your $40 e-gift card as a thank you for your participation.
