Protect sample quality with temperature-controlled shipping

Being able to rely on the viability of your sample often means ensuring your samples travel to the lab using a temperature-control solution. Our cold shipping package can maintain a constant 2°C to 8°C environment for up to 96 hours. For cryogenic needs, our FedEx Deep Frozen Shipping Solution provides up to 10 days of holding time at -150˚C without the need and hassle of dry ice. For a closed-loop, temperature-controlled network, use our FedEx Healthcare Shared Network. We can handle all your shipments and returns through a network of temperature-controlled warehouses and vehicles.

For every sample — the right protection

A sample is never just a sample. A patient’s diagnosis or treatment plan depends on reliable results. And what happens during shipping can affect its accuracy. As a critical specimen travels from the collection site to the laboratory, you need to be able to verify temperature and time in transit, and you need visibility in case intervention is needed. SenseAwareSM, a FedEx innovation, gives you an insight of your shipment’s temperature, real-time location, and more to let the data drive the discussion. FedEx ShipmentWatch® provides a dedicated team that will monitor your shipment with SenseAware.
