Transporting Infectious Substances

To protect public health, The U.S. Department of Transportation has strict guidelines for transporting infectious substances. There are also carrier rule variations. Familiarize yourself on the proper packing of specimen in order to abide by regulation and to protect the safety of those handling and transporting them by referencing the following:

Shipping Specimen with Federal Express

Shipping Specimen with UPS

Shipping Specimen with USPS

  • Please review USPS Publication 52 - "Hazardous, Restricted, and Perishable Mail" in order to use USPS services to ship specimen.

Note: Specimens submitted to the CSUVDL, including carcasses, tissues and agents isolated from samples, become the property of the CSUVDL unless other arrangements are made in writing prior to or at the time of submission.
