Your co-operation using these box address labels when referring diagnostic samples to our laboratories is greatly appreciated
Using the labels will help NHSBT staff to identify where the boxes need to be delivered to after they arrive on site, reducing the risk of samples referred to NHSBT RCI laboratories being incorrectly stored or forwarded to the wrong department.
The templates can be printed direct onto labels 99.1 x 38.1 mm
It is important you follow these instructions when referring diagnostic samples to our laboratories:
- Use the correct label
- Give the laboratory name
- If the sample is urgent telephone the laboratory to find out what their arrangements are for urgent samples
- Mark boxes for urgent samples as 'Urgent'
- Pack samples in accordance with EU Carriage of Dangerous Goods Regulations and IATA Regulations
