Re: transporting samples in formalin

From:Connie McManus <>

We receive tissues in BNF all the time.  They come in plastic screw cap
jars.  These jars are enclosed in a zip-lock plastic bag, which is
placed in a box with lots of shipping peanuts.  I don't know what kind
of regulations you have to deal with, but ours are well packed and
labeled.  Check with your mail courier to see what they recommend.
