RE: How to send frozen sections ??

From:"Bennett, Catherine (Katie)" <>

I seem to recall that (once upon a time) I had to ship frozen samples on dry
ice to Europe from the US.  I used FedEx and they were most helpful.  They
even helped me with all the paperwork.  I don't think they were the cheapest
carrier, however.

I believe they topped off the dry ice in the package when it was delayed by
customs.  Give them a call, explain your situation to them, reiterate that
the items you are shipping are non-hazardous (make sure they understand that
clearly), and they will help you get the package to where you need to get it

Also, ship it out early in the week, so it won't get delayed over the
