Get results with our diagnostic shipping solutions
When shipping diagnostic samples, there is no room for error. The requirements for diagnostic shipping — time, temperature, handling and packaging — demand precision. FedEx understands these complexities and is making sure our diagnostic customers get precisely the results they need.
Same-day specimen shipping
Time is of the essence for many diagnostic tests. The patient is relying on those results to help the physician make timely treatment decisions. And the physician is relying on the shipper to get it to the lab. Reduce the risk of degradation and get it where it needs to go quickly with FedEx SameDay® and FedEx SameDay® City.
Reliable returns for diagnostics
The diagnostics market is fiercely competitive. Our easy and precise returns solutions provide the quick, accurate and reliable results you need to anticipate your inbound samples and plan for staffing.
Safe packaging for dangerous goods
When your samples and specimens are infectious and subject to dangerous goods restrictions, ship them reliably and safely with us using the FedEx® UN 3373 Pak or box, coupled with our reliable, time-definite shipping options.
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.
