Shipping - We recommend UPS, FedEx or courier delivery with tracking for all specimens. Samples submitted via the US postal service are routed through central receiving, which limits tracking and significantly delays delivery time. Damaged and/or leaking packages may be seized and not delivered.
Submission forms - Include a completed submission form for each patient and/or test request. Use laboratory-specific forms if submitting multiple test types.
Label Your Sample(s) - All specimen containers, tubes, and slides must be labelled with relevant patient and site information.
Multiple Laboratory Submissions - Samples being submitted for multiple patients and/or to multiple laboratory sections may be shipped together. Review specimen guidelines for each laboratory/submission type.
New clients - If you are a new client/clinic interested in using the PVDL, please find the form you need below and complete the following fields:
- Complete contact information for your clinic

- Electronic address or fax # where test results are to be delivered

All laboratory addresses can be found on submission forms and on the PVDL General Submission Guidelines document.
