Specimen Lock Box Instructions

Maintaining specimen integrity is extremely important to laboratory testing.

These boxes are designed to start at room temperature, so it is vital they stay inside until packing for the courier.

If you are transporting multiple specimens requiring different temperatures

  1. The box should be inside until packed for the courier. It is important that these boxes start at room temperature in order to maintain specimen integrity.

  2. Place a freeze pack on the bottom of the box.
