Transport of specimens

All specimens should be transported in the relevant fixative or transport medium as indicated in specimen requirements.

All specimen pots should be tightly sealed and transported using specimen bags, where appropriate. The request card should be placed in the pocket of the specimen bag, and the pot inside the sealed bag to ensure the safety of all staff.
