Thanksgiving Holiday Instructions

Please be advised that major shipping providers (FedEx, UPS, couriers) will not deliver or pick up packages on Thursday, November 23rd, 2017 in observance of Thanksgiving.

Viracor Eurofins will not be receiving or processing samples on this day (but Client Services is always on-call for your urgent needs). Shipments sent on the day preceding the holiday will be delivered to Viracor on the day following the holiday.

Please make note of the following special instructions to ensure specimen integrity.

  1. Frozen specimens shipped on the work day preceding the holiday must have adequate dry ice to ensure the specimen stays frozen until specimen is delivered the day following the holiday. If possible, it is recommended to hold these specimens until regular shipping resumes.

  2. Freeze samples with 96 hour stability (serum and plasma must be spun down and separated prior to freezing).
