Loose samples

Just a reminder that plastic bags or gloves are NOT suitable sample containers when used on their own.

All samples MUST be packaged according to the Land Transport regulations when sending via commercial courier – this a legal requirement.  You, the shipper are liable for any fines should there be issues.  Three packaging layers are required:

1) Leak proof sample container e.g. blood tube, sample pottle

2) Sealed container with absorbent material in case of leaks e.g. zip-lock bag

3) Strong, rigid, leak proof shipping container for shipping.
