Note: use fresh capsules
To ensure a valid test, capsule chemistry expires 6 months after manufacturing. We will always send you capsules that have at least 2 months of shelf life left.
Note: storing capsules
Store capsules in cool, dry place to keep their precise chemistry intact. Capsules should not be stored above 95°F. Dispose of used capsules after your test.
Most people test 12 times a month
and use 12 capsules a month
