Opening Your Kit

Be sure to carefully open your kit.  Do not tear the bag.  You will need it to return your sample.

Follow the instructions, also included within your kit, to ensure your test results are correctly connected to your account.

Carefully opened Binx test kit bag

Carefully open your test kit. Do not rip the bag because you will need to use it to return your sample.

Register Your Account

Before you can submit a sample, you must first activate your kit and register your account.

You must use your NYU Net ID email address (ex: abc123@nyu.edu) when you register. This will ensure your test results are correctly connected to your account.

Activate Your Kit

Go to app.mybinxhealth.com/activate-box to activate your kit each time you submit a sample.

Having trouble? In order to activate your kit and register your account you need to enter all your information correctly. Please check you to be sure your NetID@nyu.edu email, your date of birth, and your N# are correct. Typing any of these incorrectly will result in an error message below the email address field.  

A Word on Kit Labeling...

You may notice that the labeling on the kits says, “For Research Use Only / Not for use in diagnostic procedures.”  The presence of this language on the kits dates back to when the lab applied to FDA for authorization for the test, which it received.  Rest assured, the test is valid, reliable, and—most importantly—authorized for diagnostic use.

The lab is working on changing the wording on the packaging for future test kits.

DO:

Always remember to activate your kit before you collect your sample.

DON'T:

Don't rip open your test kit. You need to use the same packaging to send it back.

Don't collect your saliva sample in a public place or public restroom.
