Shipping Infectious Substances & Diagnostic Specimens

The past few years have seen many changes to the regulations in the US involving the shipment of infectious substances and diagnostic specimens. Due to the potential hazards associated with these types of samples, the regulations concerning both air and ground transportation are very specific and involved. Two of the most common violations for shipments of infectious substances and diagnostic specimens are improper packaging and inadequately trained personnel. The information provided on this page is to serve as a resource for the necessary training required for shipment and packaging and provide some guidance to those who must ship these types of samples.

We carry a line of packaging products designed specifically to meet the regulatory requirement for the shipment of infectious substances and diagnostic specimens including the shipment of these samples using dry ice. Following the proper packaging requirements, will ensure your packages arrive safely at their destination and eliminate the potential of costly fines for use of improper packaging.
