How do I ship a sample?

  1. Label specimens with at least two unique identifiers; patient name and date of birth are preferred. The unique identifiers must be included on the corresponding test requisition form. Unlabeled or improperly labeled specimens will be rejected. The HudsonAlpha Clinical Services Lab does not accept products of amplification reactions. Additional requirements vary by specimen type. View the PDF below for more information.
  2. Complete a Hazardous Materials Declaration Form to include with the specimens.
  3. Package and ship specimens as follows:
    1. For blood and saliva specimens, ship overnight at room temperature. Blood specimens should be shipped in an insulated container with leak-proof packaging. For extracted DNA/RNA specimens, ship overnight on dry ice in an insulated container (see diagram below). Specimens must be sent to:

HudsonAlpha Clinical Services Lab, LLC

601 Genome Way, Rm 3001

Huntsville, AL 35806

  1. Ship FFPE blocks or slides overnight on ice packs. Ensure slides are properly packaged to prevent breaking. FFPE blocks or slides must be sent to:
