The viability of each specimen depends upon how well the thermal environment is maintained through the specimen transport process. All specimens must be maintained at the proper temperature to prevent the need to recollect due to thermal damage. The thermal environment of each specimen should be clearly defined by the client and the location of the specimen at the account.
Laboratory specimens are packed in primary, secondary, and tertiary containers for transportation.
Primary = tube, cup, or slideSecondary = biohazard bagTertiary = Courier bag
