Packing samples - Vetpath Couriers
These include blood tubes, specimen pots, transport media tubes etc. Please ensure these are labelled appropriately and closed tightly so that they do not leak. If screw capped containers are used these may be reinforced with adhesive tape. If multiple specimens are placed in a single secondary packaging they can be wrapped individually (eg. cotton wool, ziplock bag etc.) to ensure that contact between them is minimised.
Place the samples into the large pocket of the specimen zip-lock bag and seal closed. Place the Laboratory Request Form into the outer pocket of the bag.
