Biological Samples Transport Container
The transport container
Blood samples can be shipped to our Laboratory using our shipping box
that includes a Biological Samples Transport Container,
assembled according to UN3373 (compliant with European
standards for biological sample transport).
The box includes everything needed for the storage and protection of biological
samples; inside you will also find a brochure with detailed instructions on the
procedure for shipping biological samples to the laboratory. The instructions
are very easy and intuitive, and our staff is always available for any
information or clarification.
The shipping box includes:
1. A secondary cylindrical container of red plastic with a grey
2. A container for test tubes (inside the secondary container)
in spongy material inside which some tubes are present.
3. A cardboard transport box, bearing the Genoma Laboratory
logo, with the acronym UN3373 printed on one side, and on the opposite side
showing the address of the recipient (Genoma Laboratory) and a space where to
write down the sender details.
4. An informed consent form, to be filled in and signed to
perform PrenatalSAFE® on the sample collected, and a blood sampling form, to be
filled in by the doctor who will make the collection.
