After you place an order with a blood draw requirement, Rupa will now send your patients local phlebotomy options via e-mail! The e-mail comes about 48 hours after the patient has paid for their lab.
Depending on the availability of phlebotomists in their area, patients will get in-office and mobile phlebotomy options. Patients can always reach out to us if they require other options.
You can also set your own preferred phlebotomist - and Rupa will automatically direct your patients to your preferred phlebotomist via e-mail every time you place an order with a blood draw requirement. Remember to adjust your settings if you want to set a preferred phlebotomist.
This makes it easier for patients to schedule their phlebotomy visits and helps you get lab results faster ⚡️.
We’re thrilled to announce that DNA Rx is our latest lab partner on Rupa! DNA Rx is a woman-owned lab focused on making nutrigenomics more accessible and easier to understand.
Tests that are offered through DNA RX are used to diagnose histamine intolerance, Celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, vitamin deficiencies, and neurotransmitter problems.
DNA Rx’s most popular test - the Wellness Genetic Panel - provides information on 40 genes that are relevant to diet and lifestyle. With just a simple cheek swab, it can help uncover vitamin deficiencies, the best diet for the patient, how their neurotransmitters function, and what food/chemical sensitivities may be present.
DNA RX says that practitioners of all types use their testing for wellness and precision medicine.
We welcome DNA RX to Rupa! You can order DNA RX’s labs on Rupa by clicking on the link below. By ordering on Rupa, you can order labs in just 2-3 steps in 60 seconds or less, have all results come to one place, and have us take care of all patient & lab logistics, issues, and questions.
We’ve heard from many of you that you like to place the same lab test orders again and again. This makes total sense to us, too - for example, checking in on a patient’s gut health requires an initial test followed by another test after a certain time period.
To help make repeat orders as simple as possible, we first launched custom bundles - allowing you to create, save, and name any lab test bundle of your choosing from multiple lab providers for easy one-click ordering.
But, now, we’re making ordering the same tests over and over again even more convenient!
This feature is perfect for those who want to order the same tests for a patient, but haven't scheduled them in advance.
Simply go into your dashboard, click the “order again” dropdown and select “order now”
You’ll then be brought to the checkout page, where your patient’s information and tests will already be loaded and you can checkout as normal. As easy as pie.
Do you have a specific date in mind for when you need to re-run a test? If so, this feature is for you.
Simply go into your dashboard, click the “order again” dropdown and select “schedule order”. You’ll be brought to this calendar where you can schedule the order for a future date.
After you schedule the order, it will appear in your dashboard as a reminder. You can edit or re-schedule from there if something changes!
If you’ve elected to pay for the order, then the card on file will be charged on the date the order is scheduled for. Your patient will receive notification that the test has been ordered, as usual.
If you’ve designated your patient as the payer, then your patient will receive an e-mail as usual asking for payment.

Since many of our practitioners order labs with a blood draw requirement, we want to make sure you and your patients’ phlebotomy experience is as simple and as easy as possible.
Whether you prefer to send your patients to a specific phlebotomist, a blood draw center, or have it done in your office, you can manage that all here! Based on the preferences you set, we’ll send a custom e-mail to your patients every time you order a blood draw lab that tells them where to go, the cost, and any custom instructions you want to send.
