Shipping Instructions


  1. Pack your specimens as usual. If your specimen needs a coolant, use a frozen ice pack but do not use dry ice.

  2. Call Federal Express toll free at 1-800-238-5355 or 1-800-GO FEDEX to request a pick-up. Some remote areas have pick-ups earlier in the day to insure next-day delivery so be sure to ask when your specimens should be ready for pick-up.

  3. Tell the customer service agent you are sending your specimens to our FedEx account, and that you will need an airbill for your sample (if necessary). Call 970-491-1170 or 970-297-1281 to ask for our FedEx number. Be sure to request Priority Overnight service, as FedEx has changed their delivery times for our labs, and check off "Bill Recipient Box" for Payment. Also be sure and record the weight on the form.

  4. The cost will be added to your accession's test charges and will be reflected on your sales service invoice and statement.

  5. You may request either Saturday pick-up (for Monday delivery) or Saturday delivery (with Friday pick-up). Samples picked-up Friday without a special request of Saturday deliver will arrive on Monday morning. Samples that arrive for the Saturday morning deliver via FedEx will be processed for flow cytometry on the day of arrival. Please be aware that the cost for Saturday morning delivery (which generally requires priority overnight shipping) is considerably higher than the cost of regular overnight shipping. Please request a quote for this from FedEx.
