Shipping Instructions:

After the hair sample has been collected, put sample in its own labeled envelope and wrap each straw/ampoule separately in enough paper towel to ensure that if it leaks or breaks the liquid will be absorbed.

Put wrapping envelopes and straw/ampoules in Federal Express shipping container and stuff the top to ensure no movement of straw/ampoule vials. Put lid on container and tape it closed. Put the mailing label on the outside of the container. Put the container into a box or bubble envelope, making sure the container is not going to move during shipment. Clearly label the outside of the envelope “BOVINE HAIR AND DEAD SEMEN SAMPLE-NOT HAZARDOUS MATERIAL”

and ensure that envelope or box is closed with waterproof tape and send it to:
