Please be sure that your tubes are clearly labeled using permanent ink and include a copy of the order confirmation with your samples.
DNA samples can be shipped overnight at ambient temperature, but during warmer months shipping with ice packs is recommended. You may also send your samples frozen on dry ice if you prefer.
Samples requiring nucleic acid extraction should be sent as sealed, pre-grown agar plates at room temperature or as frozen cell pellets on dry ice.
For all shipments, please ship your samples in a rigid box and/or multiple packaging layers to protect them during transit. Follow instructions from your shipping vendor for proper packaging of dry ice.
We recommend sensitive samples be shipped Monday-Wednesday for overnight delivery to avoid delays on weekends. We are not responsible for samples lost, delayed, or damaged in shipping. We will send confirmation of receipt.
We will retain extracted DNA for 6 months in case you decide to perform additional sequencing.
