Address labels to use for samples

We have produced printable address labels (Avery L7163 2x7, 99.1 x 38.1mm, or equivalent) for you to use when sending samples to the appropriate Stem Cells & Immunotherapies (SCI) laboratory. 

This is to reduce the risk of samples arriving at NHSBT laboratories:

  • with incorrect or poorly labelled packages
  • being incorrectly stored or forwarded to the wrong department

causing a delay with results and/or the provision of appropriate services.

SCI laboratories:


We also have labels for referrals to our H&I labs and our RCI labs. If you have any queries please contact your SCI laboratory.
