The Nightingale Kit is perfectly fine in a room temperature environment both before and after blood collection. Remember to put the Blood Collection Device into the Return Package Kit right after sample collection, and the Return Package Kit into the outer box for return shipment. Make sure to ship the Nightingale Kit within 24 hours of collecting your sample. It is ok to leave the Nightingale Kit in a mailbox even in freezing temperatures.
