Ordering your own bloodwork in Maryland

Dan Wich looking disgusted at a urine test

By: Dan Wich

Maryland has some obnoxious laws that leave Quest Diagnostics as the only blood lab that works with the companies that allow consumers to order bloodwork. And I only know of two such companies:

At the time of this writing (early 2017), even Life Extension, a company normally willing to send blood draw kits to restricted states, won't ship to Maryland. It might be worth re-checking with them periodically though, because they're often much cheaper than other providers.

If you're near the border of another state, it could be worth doing a price comparison with the providers mentioned on my individual test pages, since many of them only care about the state in which the blood is drawn.

There's also companies like ZRT Laboratory and Canary Club with mail-in kits for tests that can work from saliva, urine, or fingerprick blood.

That's all I'm aware of for Maryland. If I've missed anything, please let me know in the comments so I can improve the page.

If you're interested in self-testing as I am, check out my Facebook or Twitter account where I post interesting self-testing news and get a little too excited about blood test sales.

Please leave a comment if you see a way to improve this page or if you have any questions. Keep in mind that I know little about the medical side of bloodwork, I just enjoy making sites with lists of things.
