No, you don’t. If you’re not using your kit immediately, you’ll need to refrigerate the vial of transport media (pink fluid). Once refrigerated, the transport media can be stored for up to 14 days.

If your transport media is expired, you don’t need to buy a whole new kit — reach out to our client experience team at clientservices@givelegcy.com, and they’ll send a new vial of media.
