RE: transporting samples in formalin

From:Roberta Horner <>

When we send samples in formalin the jars are placed in a ziplock bag with
absorbant padding then in a box then in a second box.  I believe this is the
regulation requirements for shipping hazardous liquid.  The outside box gets
a formalin warning sticker on it.

does anyone have any suggestions on transporting tissue samples which are in
NBF? They are currently in jars, and i need to FedEx them to a
lab as they are (ie, non-embedded). Is it even ok to send anything in
via courier?
