WADDL Shipper

WADDL now offers shippers with supplies required for safe transportation of your diagnostic specimen. Our shippers take the guesswork out of the everchanging safety requirements for shipping biological samples by meeting or exceeding U.S. Postal Service and air courier (UPS and FedEx) requirements.

WADDL shippers are ideal for submitting small specimens for bacteriology, parasitology, pathology, serology, and virology. The exact shipper size is 11 x 9 x 10 inches.

All WADDL shippers include the following:

  • 1 small biohazard bag (secondary container)
  • 1 larger secondary bag
  • 2 absorbent pads
  • 1 piece of bubble wrap
  • 1 piece of tape

WADDL shippers are available for purchase by phone at 509-335-9696. Payment at time of order is required. Shippers will be assembled and shipped the following business day.

For shipper assembly instructions please visit the shipper instruction webpage.

Note: Shipping labels for submitting specimens to WADDL are sold separately. For more information, including discount shipping through UPS, please see our Shipping guidelines webpage.

Our insulated foam shippers are ideal for keeping diagnostic specimens cool for maintaining the integrity of the specimen throughout the shipping process. Each shipper contains materials needed to package your specimen to reduce leaks and accidental breakage during transit. The insulated shipper can be used with or without gel icepacks depending upon the specimen being submitted. For more information concerning specific requirements for submitting a specimen for specific tests please visit our Tests Webpage or contact the lab.

Cost: $30.00
